Know it all…

…today’s best book about how things work is Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words by genius explainer and clever comic Randall Munroe of last year’s What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions and xkcd fame.

Thing Explainer has just landed and is very cool – it looks like a big children’s hardback picture book and is stuffed full of explanations you didn’t know you needed about things and processes you may not have even been aware of. And yet it is utterly fascinating. And perfect for all those people you know who love a bit of popular science, or appreciate a gorgeously designed book or just like to know stuff. I put a stack in the shop at lunchtime and two went in 5 minutes…

My simple explanation? It is a very good book.
