Basic Machines and how they Work
on April 10, 2012
I picked up the physical copy of the book for my (post-apocalyptic) library and am quite happy with the product. This naval manual looks like it was written in the 1940s. It starts simple with simple machines like levers and wedges and then works up to covering the basics of gasoline engines and power-trains. The writers sprinkled the text with both illustrations and equations in order to make the content as broad-based and accessible as possible.
