Description

How does a train stay on the tracks? What’s going on inside a pogo stick? How do cranes work? And what happens when you flush a toilet?
 
These and many more important questions are answered in this fascinating book. From toasters and telephones to hovercrafts and robots – the inner workings of machines big and small are brought to light using a stunning mix of cross-sections, close-ups and cutaways.
