This is a FUN little book--no, it's not an instruction manual, but I don't think anyone would expect a small, 192-page paperback to realistically be an instruction manual for 101 things. The cover is intriguing and invites people to take a look; the brief descriptions are concise and informative, sometimes funny. I bought this over a year ago, and it has yet to leave the coffee table, because it's never gone more than a few days without someone picking it up.
Not exactly an instructional manual (there's a lot of painting with a pretty broad brush in the descriptions of how these things were done) but a fun two minute perusal per topic.
Give one to your kids and see if they appreciate all the stuff that gets done for them behind the scenes. (Spoiler alert: I'm guessing no)
