All About Electricity, Make, and Howtoons


This is a great book, “All About Electricity,” wish I had read it when I was younger, but has an amazing amount of information even for adults, everything about how things work in the world makes much more sense to me now. I had no idea that’s how doorbells work! And how easy/simple the ideas of electromagnets are, and when you reverse that, you get generators! And electric motors! And TV! All explained in detail and with great diagrams!

Perhaps a modern version of this is Make and Howtoons and “How —- Work” books like “How Computers Work,” the “How Products are Made” books and website
and the “How Things Work: The Physics of Everyday Life” book and website.
