Reviews

"Adam has drawn for us an imperative how-to for creativity that goes well beyond scissors, saws, and glue, to include vulnerability, self-confidence, and self-deprecating humor. I am aware of no human outside of fiction more qualified to pen this rousing paean to making. I adore this book."
-Nick Offerman
"This book is creative rocket fuel. Adam is a master maker, and this might be his greatest creation yet - a funny, vulnerable and soulful dive into the beautiful mind of passionate artist. It's about making stuff, but there is also philosophy, insight, and, most of all, inspiration. This book is so cool!"
--Ed Helms
"Adam has stocked up a lot of deep thought and deeper wisdom: about how to make things large and small, how to make decisions large and small, and how to make sure you're making the things that matter. Consider this book as a 3-D print out of Adam's brain, and be glad you have it."
-John Hodgman, New York Times bestselling author of The Areas of My Expertise and Vacationland
"Artists, inventors, and creators of every stripe will find Savage's work inspiring and informative, while Mythbusters fans and others will savor his many amusing "making" foibles and misadventures."--Booklist
"A personal look at the importance of creativity in all walks of life." --The Verge
"The handyman dad will love this book...Adam Savage challenges readers to take a deeper look at what inspires them when it comes to 'making and molding, building and breaking' offering his own tips and tricks along the way about his favorite techniques and tools." --Oprah Magazine
