    Long live the mammoth!

    I'm 26 and I still love this book! It's great for people who love to fix things, take things apart, and put them back together. Once you get over the fact that's it's written to be accessible to young people, people of any age can enjoy the book and learn from it.

    Good stuff

    I'm 16 years old, and am very curious about the way things work! This book taught me more than a thing or two. It contains interesting things ... for example, have you ever wondered how a stapler works?? I have, and this book's got the answers. I definitely recommend this book to anyone out there who wants to know how things work, enjoys science, or just wants to learn a new thing or two.

    Extraordinary!

    Fantastic description of how real world devices work, with all of the underlying physics explained in simple terms. The drawings are great and the wooly mammoth makes the whole thing fun. We're buying a set of these for use in our physics class next year.

    Since there is no way to rate customer service, I am left with leaving my feedback here.
     I love this book and was hoping to give the book to my son for Christmas.  When I ordered the book, I was under the impression that said book would be shipped before Christmas..... alass almost 5  days later I learn that the book will not be shipped until January.  Customer service has been absolutly NO help in trying to get me the book in time for Christmas.  Seems that I have to do the leg work because they were not truthful when I placed the order.  I've spent nearly $600 at the brick and mortar store this year alone, including the purchase of 2 Nooks, and I can not get any meaningful assistance from customer service to help solve "my" problem.... not even a "let me call the local store and see what we can do
    to help".  I should have gone through Amazon.

    The old way

    It reminds me of a book called 'Rocket science for Dummies' No one would enjoy reading it. It would only be suitable for a library.
