Ian Graham has written more than one hundred non-fiction books and numerous magazine articles on video, computers, electronics and communications. After taking a degree in applied physics and a post-graduate diploma in journalism at the City University, London, he worked for three years as an editor in consumer electronics magazines before turning freelance. His book 'How it works: Helicopters' received a commendation in that year's Science Book Prizes and he has also had books selected as 'Books for the Teen Age' by the US Library of Congress.From Booklist:
A solid entry in the How Machines Work series, this general wrap-up of all things airplane uses informational drawings, cutaway diagrams, and photos—including some dazzling shots of cockpit control panels, complete with labeled instruments. The layout is sufficiently busy to capture interest, and boxes isolate “Did You Know?” factoids as well as detailed specifications for each aircraft. Occasionally a head-scratcher goes unexplained, but overall this is good stuff for budding pilots obsessed with pitch, roll, and yaw, or a nervous passenger awaiting his or her first flight. Grades 3-5. --Daniel Kraus
