If you’ve got an insatiable thirst for knowledge, a burning need to understand the world around us and master the workings of our everyday reality, then you need to pick up a copy of How It Works.
How It Works acts as a leisurely, bite-sized encyclopedia, covering a range of talking points and scientific developments in each monthly issue. Each of the 100 or so pages is stuffed to bursting with new developments in the world of science as well as detailed breakdowns of, well, how things work.
Sitting alongside the mechanics behind jet engines you will find a guide to the human muscle and nervous system, answers to common questions and indepth studies on a range of phenomena such as multiple universe theories. There’s also timely content, such as a guide to how various athletes at the Olympics practice and master their sports, so you can be sure that you will learn something interesting every time you pick you the latest issue.
You might expect then that How It Works is full of jargon, or somehow hard to read casually. Thankfully,you’d be wrong. How It Works walks the fine line between being insightful and being a fun read with aplomb, balancing articles on world geography with reader’s questions and things that you didn’t even know that you need to know, such as how astronauts wash their hair in space. What’s more, familiar personalities such as wildlife presenter Steve Backshall appear regularly to share their passions.
