The Universe is inconceivably complex. Its component parts though follow a set of unbreakable laws that have somehow been coded into their very fabric since the beginning of time. These laws play out in different ways at different scales, giving rise to the familiar phenomena of everyday life - as well as the unfamiliar abstract goings-on outside our experience and awareness. Understanding these laws may seem a daunting task, until now.

How it All Works illustrates simply how the most interesting and complex named scientific laws and phenomena affect everyone's daily lives. Using hyper-detailed scene illustrations from the incredible Adam Dant, we start small, with the illustrated science inside your kitchen, before expanding outwards to encompass your garden, street, city, continent, planet, solar system, galaxy and eventually the whole universe. From Kirchoff's Law affecting how you charge your phone, through to Newton's Law of Cooling making your coffee just the right temperature to drink, all the way to quantum tunnelling influencing the nuclear fusion in our sun, to Wien's Law determining its colour. This book will astound and inform in equal measure, with each principle drawn into the scene and explained with clarity by leading science writer Brian Clegg.
