I also read this on the ladybird books website; The Learnabout books of the 60s helped children to develop new interests, but focus on the factual side brought some unusual results. How it Works: The Motor Car (published in 1965) was used by Thames Valley police driving school as a general guide. Although out of print for some years, it is still asked for by driving schools. How it Works: The Computer was used by university lecturers to make sure that students started at the same level. Two hundred copies of this same book were ordered by the Ministry of Defence. But it was a special order - the Ministry wanted the books in plain brown covers, to save embarrassment!
