Perhaps it’s just a sign that I’m sneakier than average, more inclined to think out of the box, but most of the things that made it into the book I had already thought of, read about online, etc.
A great many of the uses described were also quite impractical. Not exactly a bad book, but it could have been much better. If you’ve got to read it, try not to go into it with high hopes. Jan 27, Brian rated it liked it Shelves: Good, but unless you have multiple watch batteries a cassette player and other obsolete technologies, this may be too outdated.
It was published in 03, but references a lot of things I don’t have around any more. Oct 13, Daniel Stern rated it did not like it. I bought this hoping for some future science activities to do with my kid, but most of them I won’t be able to do.
While I’m sure this book was great a couple of decades ago, it should be noted that the “everyday things” aren’t so every day anymore. And who needs a “VHS Rewinder” lol? Even pennies are non existent in Canada. Aug 21, Faranae rated it it was ok. My copy has a lot of errata – missing diagrams and such. Was vaguely familiar with most of the project concepts, having grown up with Boys Life magazine and a millwright father.
Still, kind of fun, if now getting a bit dated. Mar 24, Esther: This one was the best!!! Jan 25, Andrew rated it liked it. This is another one of those tinker and hack everyday objects which I find so fascinating.

The book however is an interesting source of ideas and suggestions and for that it is a good read – though some This is another one of those tinker and hack everyday objects which I find so fascinating.
The book however is an interesting source of ideas and suggestions and for that it is a good read – though some of the projects are a bit limited. Sep 28, Astrid Yrigollen rated it liked it Shelves: This is a another one of those cute project books for you and your child or for yourself if you like tinkering and making small gadgets.
Do not be fooled though by it’s simplistic drawings and 7th grade text, there are also larger applications to a lot of these projects if one cares to expand on them. Aug 12, Julie rated it liked it.
Okay so I learned how to origami a cup and make a compass out of my watch but spending hours tearing LED lights out of electronics and bulk buying various kinds of batteries is not practical for me soooooo Feb 08, Lora rated it really liked it.
Now I can make a sparking arc with my car battery to start a fire!! Jan 15, Kimberly Ann rated it liked it. Jun 23, Josh rated it did not like it. Regrettably simplistic; the author’s books continue to titillate with covers and blurbs, but fail to deliver any content of value.
Jan 18, Martin rated it really liked it. A fun little book with lots of rudimentary reuse and repurposing projects. Bonus for the casein plastic recipe. Apr 20, Electro Duck rated it really liked it.
