Have you ever wondered how airplanes stay in the air, how holograms are made, or how
ants lift things many times their size? You'll find answers to these enigmas as well as
learn about more complex developments, including the discovery of the Higgs boson,
gravitational waves, and the mysteries of dark matter. Topic spreads include Q&A
features, short-story sections, and simple graphics to answer all your questions about

How Technology Works, by DK -
This book demystifies the machinery that keeps the modern world going, from simple
objects such as zip fasteners and can openers to the latest, most sophisticated devices
of the information age, including smartwatches, personal digital assistants, and
driverless cars. It includes inventions that have changed the course of history, like the
internal combustible engine, as well as technologies that might hold the key to our future
survival, including solar cells and new kinds of farming to feed a growing population.
Throughout the book, step-by-step explanations are supported by simple and original
graphics that take devices apart and show you how they work.
How Food Works, by DK -
A nutritionist in a book that explains key concepts about food and what makes it good or
bad for you, How Food Works brings the science of food to life. Through a highly visual
approach that uses bold infographics, explore the good, the bad, the confusing, and the
trending world of food. Discover what an antioxidant is, find out what a superfood does
to your body, and learn why it is dangerous to reheat rice. This work covers a variety of
topics, from dieting to gluten intolerance, nutrition, food groups, food myths, and looks
into organic vs. processed foods.   
The Ecology Book, by DK -
Using a bold, graphic-led approach, The Ecology Book explores and explains over 85
of the key ideas, movements, and acts that have defined ecology and ecological
thought. This book has a simple chronological structure, with early chapters ranging
from ideas of classical thinkers to attempts by Enlightenment thinkers to systematically
order the natural world. Later chapters trace the evolution of modern thinking, from the
ideas of Thomas Malthus, Henry Thoreau, and others, all the way through to the
political and scientific developments of the modern era, including the birth of the
environmental movement and the Paris Agreement.
How the Body Works, by DK -
This book uses clear, easy-to-understand
graphics and illustrations to de-mystify all
the complex processes that keep our
bodies alive and thriving - from the basic
building blocks of the body - our cells - to
skin, muscles, and bones, and the many
ways in which our many parts work
together. Each chapter includes
surprising facts, such as "by the time you
finish reading this sentence, 50 million of
your cells will have died and been
replaced."
