Arrived on time, in mint condition & well packaged.
I wanted to take this direction before reading, now I'm sure!
This book not only makes good sense, as it is written in an easy to comprehend language or style but is also
a brilliant source of further learning via giving (hyper)links and resource locations without expecting further payment.
Got to love collaboration for the greater good right? :)
There is zero in terms of step-by-step or tutorial pieces in this book. Instead, it is a broad level overview of what it takes to become a maker. It covers extreme basics - what is CAD? Why do I need a 3D printer? Many will find this too basic, but for those who are buying the book for it's intended purpose, it is likely a necessary thing. The topic selection, while shallow in depth, is fairly broad, covering how to digitize and fabricate your products, but also how to bring younger makers into the hobby, and how to take your new devices and start a small business with them.
Illustrations are few and far between, but the text is well-written and engaging, and broken up into chapters and very short subchapters so that it's easy to skip around if you are only interested in particular elements. Not a bad choice, but not something you'll want to check out if you have any qualms about the limitations of what it offers.
