From the #1 best-seller author of Ce SiThe man who created xkcd and explains the laws of science with cartoons – comes from a series of brilliantly simple diagrams (‘ shots’ if you want to be complicated), which show how important work things: from the nuclear bomb to the bicycle.It’s good to know what parts of a thing are called, but it’s much more interesting to know what they do.Richard Feynman once said that if you can’t explain something to a first-year student, you don’t really get it.In Chose Explainer, Randall Munroe takes a quantum leap back in time: he explains things using only drawings and a vocabulary of our 1,000 (or ten hundred) most common words.A lot of things we use every day – like our food-heating radio boxes (‘ microwave ovens), our very large roads (‘ bridges’), and our computer rooms (the’ data centers’), strange for us.The other worlds around our sun (the solar system), the big flat rocks we live (tectonic plates), and even the stuff inside us (the cells)Where do these things come from?How do they workWhat do they look like if you open it?And what would happen if we heated, cooled down, stressed in another direction, or pressed this buttonIn Chose Explainer, Munroe gives us the answers to these questions and many, many, many more.Funny, interesting, and always understandable, this book is for anyone between the ages of 5 and 105 — who has never asked how things work, and why.
