For anyone, young or old, who has ever wondered, "how do they make those?" - here is an entertaining, illustrated exploration of the process behind the manufacture of everyday items. What are bulletproof vests made of? How do they get lipstick into the tube? How much brass does it take to make a trumpet? The answers - and much fascinating information - can be found in How Things Are Made, a behind-the-machine look at everyday objects of all kinds, from guitars, helicopters, and compact discs to lawn mowers, running shoes, and chocolate.
