I liked it...
...but not as much as I had hoped.
You see, I DO have a genuine interest in learning "How Things Work", and while this book was a noble attempt to present the answers in an entertaining way, it often didn't accomplish its fundamental goal for me. In other words, the explanations often didn't succeed in teaching me how the item in question actually worked.
This is partly due to space limitations, i.e., each concept having to be presented basically on one page. For many, I could have used a more detailed breakdown, and in particular, more drawings to explicate and simplify the steps.
And as for the drawings themselves, I was personally a little disappointed, expecting more detail and precision and less sketchy whimsy.
Still, this was an ambitious undertaking, and could be useful to those completely unfamiliar with basic concepts of mechanics, motion, electricity, etc.
And sorry to be a cartoon Grinch but, IMO, the whole Woolly Mammoth thing wasn't nearly as cute as the author apparently thought.
