Cool Stuff 2.0 and How It Works

Book Description

Chris Woodford - Author
Jon Woodcock - Author
8 - 17 years
Take an eye-opening journey from the engine of a hydrogen-fuelled car, jump into the virtual world of Second Life, and scale the earthquake-proofed structure of the world's tallest office building. Cool Stuff 2.0 reveals the science behind every machine and gadget, and details when and how things were invented along the way. 


I think that Cool Stuff 2.0 is a fascinating book. While I was looking through it with the kids there were a lot of comments like " is this REAL?" and " I didn't know that" and "oh I want that!". Both of the boys (ages 7 & 8) were very interested in this book and have looked at it dozens of times on their own. It is packed full of interesting gadgets and great pictures. I asked the boys what they thought of it and here is what they said :

Aiden: I LOVE it! But it is kind of making me jealous of stuff ... like I want the cool stuff in the book.
Owen: It is awesome! I totally don't know how they get all that stuff though.

Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a copy of this book to review.
