The third installment of DK's Cool Stuff series will blow your mind. Cool Stuff Exploded is a super-cool technology book that deconstructs - or literally explodes - everyday objects so readers can see exactly how they work. See a piece-by-piece breakdown of cell phones, computers, cars, and more, and learn how each part works and how they all fit together as a whole. This unique look at the items we use every day brings science, technology, and wonder together, giving us all a great appreciation for how our twenty-first-century world works.
