<b>*DESIGNED FOR KINDLE FIRE TABLETS*</b><br /><br /><b>*NOT FOR KINDLE E-READERS OR KINDLE APPS*</b><br /><br />Explainer-in-Chief David Macaulay updates the worldwide bestseller <i>The New Way Things Work</i> to capture the latest developments in the technology that most impacts our lives. Famously packed with information on the inner workings of everything from windmills to Wi-Fi, this extraordinary and humorous book both guides readers through the fundamental principles of machines, and shows how the developments of the past are building the world of tomorrow. This sweepingly revised edition embraces all of the latest developments, from touchscreens to 3D printer. Each scientific principle is brilliantly explained--with the help of a charming, if rather slow-witted, woolly mammoth. <br /><br />An illustrated survey of significant inventions closes the book, along with a glossary of technical terms, and an index. What possible link could there be between zippers and plows, dentist drills and windmills? Parking meters and meat grinders, jumbo jets and jackhammers, remote control and rockets, electric guitars and egg beaters? Macaulay explains them all.<br /><br /><b>This Print Replica Kindle ebook maintains the rich formatting and layout of the print edition while enabling readers to zoom and pan on the highly detailed images. This advanced format is designed for Kindle Fire tablets and cannot be read on Kindle e-readers (including the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Voyage) or with most Kindle apps (including Kindle for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch).

The stunning conclusion to the Last Descendants trilogy! Only one piece of the Trident of Eden remains -- Isaiah, a rogue Templar agent, has discovered both the faith prong and the fear prong of this powerful relic. Should he possess the devotion prong, there is little that can stop him. For the time being, Owen and his fellow teens have established an uneasy alliance across Assassin and Templar lines in order to stop Isaiah while they still can. <br />Over a thousand years earlier, Styrbjorn the Strong, a Danish warrior, leads the Jomsvikings against the Danish king, Harald Bluetooth. It is on those Viking battlefields that the secrets of the devotion prong lie. It is there that the fate of the world, the truth behind the teens' collective unconsciousness, and their ancestral links to one another lie. History has already been written. The rest is up to Owen, Javier, and the other members of their unlikely alliance. The actions they take will change the world of Assassin's Creed forever.
