I have just finished reading this book and I am not sure what to say. I was really excited about this book and the concept behind it. I pre-ordered it from Amazon months before it was on sale and rushed straight into reading it when it finally arrived. The concept behind this book is as the title says... making things move. The book works through a series of different projects that you can make alongside the book. There is even a website to back up the book.
This book would be really good if you have had limited making skills or experience. It works through loads of different concepts such as linkages , leavers, friction etc... For me it was just a bit too been there got the t-shirt. Its not that it is a bad book, it is a really good book! If you have messed around with motors, gears, automata etc.. and are looking for the next step I wouldn't recommend it. However if you are starting off as a `Maker' I would really recommend it!
