This book is a brilliant present for the guy who spends all day long sitting infront of his computer (like my boyfriend). I've bought him this for Xmas and I know he'll love it. Each page has amusing things to make and games to play within in to keep them from losing their temper with the connection speed!
Well worth the money!

Totally demented 28 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
I read an interview with the author in the New York Times and thought this book sounded pretty cool. Now that I have it, I can report that it is totally demented. The activities are completely nuts--what kind of person thinks this stuff up?--but the amazing thing is, they all really work. Even the Floppy Disk Halloween Mask. And the drawings are terrific. Best of all it even comes with a mouse-pad cover. It's a great gift for the computer geek in your life.

Great Fun! 8 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
I love this book! Everyone who owns a computer has all the necessary components at their disposal to make the arts and crafts projects or games and puzzles created by the author. It's a lot of fun, and would make a terrific stocking stuffer, pollyanna gift, or housewarming present, for anyone on your holiday list!
