5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff!
This is the second Rodney Frost book on automata that I've bought. The other being Mad Toys etc. This book is similar in it's really clear easy to follow manner. Again if you are interested in automata/ whirligigs/ mechanical toys, this is a great book to have on your book shelf! Well worth the money, really interesting with a "I can do that" feel about it...

I found this book to be a great resource; however I find the format less useful for workshop use and better for helping to formulate ideas and designs that you take to your workbench. I like much of the solutions interesting to follow - good book.

2.0 out of 5 stars too elementary, 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creative Kinetics: Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood (Paperback)
I am a modelmaking student so was looking for a book for either inspirations/technical knowledge. Unfortunately, this book fulfills neither of the expectations.

It is not a bad book, but it felt more like a book for parent doing stuff with their young children, or teachers with their students. I felt in that sense, it did very well in explaining all the concepts with simple, easy-to-understand diagrams.

However, if you are like me, looking for something inspiring, this is totally the wrong book. :(
