Have you ever wondered what made your toaster work? Or how about your car radio?

Have you ever wondered how your television can convert signals into pictures and sounds?

How does your dryer know when your clothes are dry?

How does your microwave oven work?

Kakalios takes us on a journey of an average day, and breaks down each of the normal things we use during that day. From the alarm clock. To the car. To a doctor's visit. To a business meeting where you have to take a flight. Your business presentation. And going to a hotel for the night.

You will be amazed at the ordinary things we use daily, and never knew how they work! Kakalios breaks down the physics of each so that a layman can understand.

This is a really fascinating book, that I read straight through in about 90 minutes. It was amazing! I think it's a keeper folks!

I give this book five stars.

And I give it a big thumbs up.

I also give it my personal recommendation.

You can find the book HERE on Amazon. It is available for Kindle and as a hardback copy. The Kindle edition retails for $13.99 and the hardback for $25.64, plus shipping and handling. But its well worth the read!
