Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words by Randall Munroe

Thing Explain Complicated Stuff in Simple Words by Randall Munroe

The thing about this book is that it only uses the ten hundred most used words by people to tell you about things that are hard to understand. It makes it sound kind of strange because you hear some words over and over again, but all in all, it is a very fun book to look at.

The man that wrote the book wrote about “Under a car’s front cover” and the “US Space Team’s Up Goer Five” and lots of things that have to do with a “Sky Boat.” There is a page about “Colors of Light” but it is in black and white, so it is not as good as other pages. There is a big table in the middle that is “the pieces everything is made of” that has “the stuff they put in pools so nothing bad can grow in them,” “brown metal that we use to carry power and voices” and “stuff you drink so doctors can look inside your body” along with all the other rocks and metals and air that is really fun to look at.
