About the Author:

John Farndon is Royal Literary Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, UK, and the author of a huge number of books for adults and children on science, technology, and nature.

Review:

"With plentiful diagrams, concise and clear text, and a lighthearted tone, this entry in the Stickmen's Guides to How Everything Works series is a stellar introduction to watercraft of all kinds. Opening with a brief time line highlighting key moments in the development of boats and ships, this engaging title continues with two-page spreads zeroing in on important components of ships and navigation, such as triangular sails, which help sailors use wind to travel in any direction; nuclear reactor engines on submarines; and the unique construction of deep-sea submersibles. Each well-explained concept is accompanied by attractive, cartoonish, yet detailed illustrations featuring cutaway views of various ships and clear diagrams demonstrating topics such as tacking, ballast, and hovercraft construction. Plenty of labels make the diagrams easy to follow, and the boatload of facts ensures that students will come away with a rich understanding not only of the parts of various types of watercraft but the fundamental ways they move around. Deeply informative and pleasantly approachable, this is sure to make a splash."―starred, Booklist
