      %T "Makers: All Kinds of People Making Amazing Things ..."

      Based on a popular column in MAKE magazine, this book concentrates
      more on the people who make things, than the things themselves. For
      those not familiar with MAKE, it is concerned with hobbyist projects,
      preferably electronic, preferably based on junk and scrap. Best of
      all, the magazine loves oddball projects.

      Ninety-one of the best of these off-the-wall inventors are featured
      here. From people who build almost full-scale submarines, to
      automated cocktail dispensers, to necktie tying machines, to a paper
      steam engine, to a pedal powered canoe. Lots of robots are included.

      OK, it's fun. Is it important? Yes, possibly it is. Creativity is
      always needed, and any exploration of what inspires it can be useful.
      (And the gadgets themselves might be inspiring, as well.)
