5.0 out of 5 stars Steam Engines Explained (Britain's Living History)
An excellent beginners book on steam engines - possibly the best basic book available. Sixty three pages full of facts, very good diagrams, and photographic illustrations. The book covers a wide range of steam engines and their applications. Steam locomotives are only briefly mentioned, but there is another book in the series covering Steam Railways.

This review is from: Steam Engines Explained (England's Living History) (Paperback)
An excellent beginners book on steam engines - possibly the best basic book available. Sixty three pages full of facts, very good diagrams, and photographic illustrations. The book covers a wide range of steam engines and their applications. Steam locomotives are only briefly mentioned, but there is another book in the series covering Steam Railways. A very interesting appendix lists many contacts and places where steam engines may be viewed today. Although the book does much to stimulate further knowledge, unfortunately sadly lacking is a list of further reading. An excellent read for most ages and highly recommended.

Failed to notice that this is a relatively short book when it comes to the number of pages. However, still a mighty good read if you've always wanted to know a bit more about the basic science behind how steam engines work.

It is well thought out in the way that it takes you through the development of this technology and it is well written too, so it isn't all dull and stuffy and it never talks down to the reader either.

All in all and despite it's compact form, it represents a good read and so I'd still recommend it for anyone who was looking to learn a bit more about the world of steam engines.
