Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words

A brilliant book to get you started in STEM. It explains things using only drawings and a vocabulary of just our 1,000 (or the ten hundred) most common words. From how a microwave works and toll bridges to the solar system and tectonic plates, this book dives in and explains the world around us.  Written and illustrated by Randall Munroe, creator of the XKCD comic.
