Customer Review

on 21 February 2011
This book definitely appeals to the geek in me. However, the first thing that struck me is that this book provides video links which show details of the project methods, which of course don't work on the kindle.

Also, from the description it appeared that this publication would be fairly harmless, with projects along the lines of "Make peanut brittle" or "Measure the speed of light using chocolate"; while those are examples of fascinating "fun things to do" that are well described, this book does also include suggestions of an entirely different nature such as "Rip two microwave ovens apart and use the components to manufacture a home made arc welder" - definitely not one to download for the kids!

To summarise, this is most suitable for those people who already have a basic grounding in physics, who have the benefit of an excellent sense of self preservation, an awareness of their own limitations and a healthy dose of common sense.
