A series of brief, standalone tales of how things work. The brief discussion on how batteries work was much better than the long-winded yarn found in a chemistry textbook I was reading recently. The overview on the physics of separating isotopes of uranium was mind-boggling in both the sophistication and the engineering that went into refining the technology. Enjoyable book. I hope they make more.
Short sweet and to the point, this book is worth a read to the scientifically curious person who wants to know more about how things work and how they are made.
Because of the decision to keep his videos in a short length format, this book is able to dive deeper in to his subjects by explaining further about the history, mechanisms or general chemistry of a topic. These additional insights were nice to read about and were worth the humble cost, which funds go to help further production of engineering videos. Each chapter is a subject of interest and if you're already familiar with Bill Hammack's videos, you will defiantly notice that bulk of the content is almost verbatim from the video scripts; this may deter some people who might expect a completely new dialog of the subjects. This really didn't bother me as the information is still interesting to have. It is also worth noting if you purchase the physical book a digital version is immediately available.

At times I did feel the narrative veered away from the main topic of the chapter, sometimes skimping in one area or being too detailed in others, but overall it was a nice read that could be kept on the nightstand for a little late-night science refresher.
