'Just Another Day follows Adam through his typical day as he reveals not only the science and technology we are surrounded by in our everyday lives but also the history behind these inventions. This book is packed full of facts such as how a modern radio-controlled alarm clock works compared with the first one ever made - by Ktesibios in Alexandria in the third century BC - as well as the real function of toothpaste and what our ancestors used before such a thing was available. We learn how Roman lavatories worked and how the ancients used to shave as well as whether you stay drier by walking or running in the rain and why ice cubes crack in your drink. Adam unlocks the modern world for us to take a look inside and see how it works showing us just how much science and technology we now take for granted.'--BOOK JACKET.
