Summary
The demystification of everyday wonders continues in this smashing successor to the hit books How Do They Do That? and How Did They Do That?. This volume explains in simple and easy-to-understand terms the answers to the mysteries of daily life that are often taken for granted. How exactly do they get the caffeine out of coffee? How do antilock brakes actually work? And how do they decide who or what gets on postage stamps? Read this book and ponder no longer. More How Do They Do That? also deciphers the riddles of modern science and the natural world. Ever wonder how penguins actually stay warm in Antarctica? How the heat of distant stars is measured? How an electric eel generates electricity? Or how to measure the ozone layer? Here are the fascinating answers. More How Do They Do That? is a feast for both the mildly curious and the grand inquisitor, a treasure trove of solutions to the marvels of the modern world
