" I was completely obsessed with this book as a child, and had forgotten about it until just now. I think I'll have to get a new copy :) " said.

" It was Christina's revisiting of childhood favorites that prompted me to revisit this totally amazing book. IT HOLDS UP. " said.

" Rediscovered my childhood finding this in the loft. " said.

" A fascinating look inside many things including a castle, cathedral, tank, subway, Empire State Building and the Space Shuttle. There is a lot of information on each page so smaller children may need help reading. " said.

" An awesome book for kids, no matter how old you are. Aaron and I can spend hours together looking at the cross sections, especially of the ships. And yes, we do love looking for the obligatory "dude on the toilet" Biesty seems to hide in each picture. " said.

" Not nearly as fascinating and re-readable as the Man O' War book, but then again, there's no gore, which is a plus or minus according to the reader taste. Much fainter memories of this book; I don't recall as many or as interesting of facts compared to Man O' War, but I'm suspicious my grade school aged self just liked the grossness of sea life hundreds of years ago. " said.

" Originally published in 1992, and still relevant to the curious kid in you. A good range of cross-sectioned things, with tons of side notes and explanations. My only complaint is that the pages, big as they are, are really very packed. Maybe a little too packed, and the designer in me wants an updated, clean, layout, haha. The illustrations are very 'Where's Waldo' which was a fun bit of nostalgia but might not such a treat for your (ok, my) aging eyes. " said.

" Incredible is not a misnomer. Stephen Beisty's amazing illustrations give you a fascinating look on how things work. From the inside of the tank, to the busy workings in the Opera House; from an ocean liner, to an ancient Castle. No detail (such as going to the loo) is too intimate to be left out. Accompanying the iluustrations are fun facts about each place, which are easy to read and understand, making for a great and enjoyable learning book. " said.
