              The clearest, most visual guide to space and the Universe for complete beginners to astronomy. Have you ever asked yourself how big the Universe is, how long it would take to get to the nearest star, or what came before the Big Bang? Then this is the book for you. How Space Works... shows you the different types of objects in the Universe (so you'll know your pulsars from your quasars) and introduces you to some of the strangest and most wonderful things known to science, including antimatter fountains and the Fried Egg Galaxy. The book starts with an explanation of our view of the Universe from Earth, then takes a tour of the Solar System, the stars and galaxies, and the farthest reaches of space. The last chapter looks at the technology we use to explore the Universe, from the International Space Station to Mars rovers, and the new and revolutionary reusable rockets. Illustrated with bold graphics and step-by-step illustrations--and peppered with bite-sized factoids and question-and- answer features--this is the perfect introduction to astronomy and space exploration.

              Take a sideways look at the dog--from head to tail, and everything in between. That humans all over the world love dogs is beyond doubt, but do we really understand our four-legged friends, beyond their wet noses and wagging tails? How Dogs Work is packed with canine insight. Fun... infographics give you all the essential facts and stats, and lead you through the world of dogs in pictures--from how dogs evolved from the wolf to our favorite pet, through the different breeds, to the finer points of working dogs and show dogs. But as the title suggests, it's also a practical guide to understanding dogs. Can you read their ears? Do you know the angle of the head that indicates a dog is dreaming of squirrels, and not listening to you? This fully illustrated guide will translate this body language and other curious canine behavior. So after your dog has taken you for a walk, put up your feet and enjoy this irresistible read!
