內容簡介

  《如果這樣,會怎樣?》作者又一顛覆大眾思考方式的精彩作品。
  解事者門羅一解釋,我們就什麼都瞭了!
  
  ★比爾蓋茲2015年夏季最愛科普書
  
  《如果這樣,會怎樣?》作者又一顛覆大眾思考方式的精彩作品。
  
  「解事者」門羅,為我們解釋了44件事物,近從地表,遠到太空,小從細胞大到國際太空站,除了以圖畫如X光般剖析物體,也用了連小學生都能了解的有趣敘述,從你想不到的角度,解釋這些事物。
  
  《解事者》不用專有名詞呼弄你。很多時候,我們用了一堆專有名詞,只是為了讓自己有信心,讓別人覺得我們很了不起,但是對事物的了解,並不是靠專有名詞,雖然這些名詞很重要,說起來很炫,讓我們感覺良好。
  
  這世界上有太多的書來是在解釋艱難的專有名詞了,而這本書做的是其他人沒做的事情,它擺脫艱難名詞的束縛,用好像有點傻氣,但大家都能弄明白的方式,為讀者解釋世界上許多事。
  
  就像愛因斯坦說的,要能簡單說清楚,才能完全明白;費曼也說過,知道一樣事物,和知道一樣事物的名字是有分別的,就讓我們跟著門羅,不受名詞困擾,不怕用笨笨的說法,一起從解釋身邊的小事開始,探索這個世界!

  From the No. 1 bestselling author of What If? - the man who created xkcd and explained the laws of science with cartoons - comes a series of brilliantly simple diagrams ('blueprints' if you want to be complicated about it) that show how important things work: from the nuclear bomb to the biro.
  
  It's good to know what the parts of a thing are called, but it's much more interesting to know what they do. Richard Feynman once said that if you can't explain something to a first-year student, you don't really get it. In Thing Explainer, Randall Munroe takes a quantum leap past this: he explains things using only drawings and a vocabulary of just our 1,000 (or the ten hundred) most common words.
  
  Many of the things we use every day - like our food-heating radio boxes ('microwaves'), our very tall roads ('bridges'), and our computer rooms ('datacentres') - are strange to us. So are the other worlds around our sun (the solar system), the big flat rocks we live on (tectonic plates), and even the stuff inside us (cells)。 Where do these things come from? How do they work? What do they look like if you open them up? And what would happen if we heated them up, cooled them down, pointed them in a different direction, or pressed this button?
  
  In Thing Explainer, Munroe gives us the answers to these questions and many, many more. Funny, interesting, and always understandable, this book is for anyone -- age 5 to 105 -- who has ever wondered how things work, and why.
  
  Review
  
  A brilliant concept. If you can't explain something simply, you don't really understand it. And Randall Munroe is the perfect guy to take on a project like this . . . If you know Munroe's previous work, it will come as no surprise that parts of Thing Explainer are laugh-out-loud funny . . . filled with cool basic knowledge about how the world works. If one of Munroe's drawings inspires you to go learn more about a subject - including a few extra terms - then he will have done his job. He has written a wonderful guide for curious minds (BILL GATES)
  
  Wonderful (Neil Gaiman)
  
  In the crowded field of trivia, nothing beats Thing Explainer by Randall Munroe, the physicist-turned-comic-artist, a sequel to What If ? . . . It is very funny and has something quite serious to say about our misplaced faith in long words (Daily Telegraph)
  
  Thing Explainer gets to the real essence of things (New Scientist)
  
  Like any good work of science writing, [Thing Explainer] is equal parts lucid, funny, and startling (NewYorker.com)
  
  In just over a decade Randall Munroe has become firmly established and it's safe to say adored as the author of xkcd. Now, Munroe has produced a book - and Thing Explainer isn't just any book. It's beautiful, packed with facts, figures and richly and simply presented diagrams (Register)
  
  Reliably amusing and often enlightening (The Times, Books of the Year)
