How Cars Work by Tom Newton - Very good introduction for our 14 year old son
on 11 August 2014
Our son has been under our cars with me more than a few times, and seems very interested in the inner workings. Picked the book up as a stocking stuffer for the Christmas season, and he really seems to have been enjoying going through it.
The book gives broad explanations of what different parts of the car do, which will hopefully intrigue our son enough to delve further into how those parts do their magic and how they can be worked on and tweaked. Maybe it is already working, 'cause he asked if it would be OK to take a small engine mechanics class in school next year. We shall see.
Nice introductory book to learn the basics of which part does what job, and maybe to help someone take the next step along the path of more in-depth learning. Recommended if that is what you seek too.
