I bought a book aimed at adults, but it was too technical- I needed something that started at the very beginning.
This is a large and fills my lap, it has easy to read font and bright big pictures. I feel it would make a ideal presents for kids interested in cars. And is a good way for parents to explain how their own cars work to their kids!
I book covers in brief all the science involves in the design and running of a car in simple language and uses pictures to explain processes clearly. Since reading the book (missed some pages) I now have a clearer understanding of the technology is use in my own car. And I am proud to say a better understanding when my car failed its MOT.
It covers the development of cars from the beginning, how different fuels are manufactured from crude oil, how steering systems work.
The pictures make it easy to understand - gears, steering system and how the engine works.
Its full of car facts, makes physics accessible (the importance of forces and friction)
It has a range of classic and modern cars, so something to appeal to all car lovers.
Suck, squeeze, bang, blow' is what goes on in my 306 engine!! A fun read for all ages
