Car Science: An Under-the-Hood, Behind-the-Dash Look at How Cars Work (Hardcover)
From Top Gear's Richard Hammond, Car Science is an intuitive and exciting children's science book on all things cars. In four sections, Car Science includes a timeline of automotive invention; a "how it works" guide to modern cars, with exploded diagrams, cutaways, and computer graphics; key physics concepts, all relating to cars and how they run; and a look into the future of cars, including eco-friendly concept cars. This car book for kids is the perfect resource for curious minds.
Richard Hammond loves cars and science. As the author of Can You Feel the Force?, cohost of one British television show about cars (Top Gear), and the host of another about science (Brainiac), his dreams come true on a daily basis. His passion for learning has also taken him around the world in search of the Holy Grail (he didn't find it) for British television. He is married with two children.
