How does motorcycle engine work?
This attractive series delivers a significant amount of material through its writing and graphics. The focus is on how these machines work and what they do, using the features of specific models as examples of the topics discussed. The authors present just enough detail to explain the basic principles of the functioning of these vehicles. Emergency Vehicles and Construction Vehicles present the most unusual topics, such as deep-sea rescue and tunnel-boring machines, while the other four feature more common types. Specifications, odd facts, and trivia are set aside in boxes, while the excellent color photos and outstanding diagrams feature clear, informative captions. An occasional tendency to use cute, slangy terminology, as in the description of an engine's four strokes as "suck, squeeze, bang, and blow," while colorful, is irritating. Overall, though, the topics are sure to be popular, the information is accurate, and it strikes a good balance between entertainment and education.
