Quick & simple review – Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words

If you struggled to understand each and every element on the Periodic Table or if you tried and failed to explain how a computer works to your Grandma than grab this book. Thing Explainer is a kind of encyclopedia, full of hand-made pictures, arrows, and descriptions. I really liked the layout and a bit childish style of everything in the book.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that many pictures are gigantic and cover both pages, the book is inconvenient to read on a Kindle or other handy electronic device. The sections which I admired the most were about a nuclear plant, a jet engine and a thousand English words used the most. Very informative and entertaining. I think the book might be a great present for kids and teenagers who are interested in science (especially engineering).
