A manifesto for making

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Adam Savage but this book is well, not fully a book.
If I knew that 50% of it was going to be a list of equipment and glues I probably wouldn’t have bought it.
It’s starts very inspirational indeed and it does make you want to make things but if you’ve made things before that makes the last half kinda pointless.
I don’t believe it’s Adam’s fault, it feels more like a publishers push to get a book out than an authors meticulous process to create a masterpiece.
A shame but I’m kinda hoping there will be another which is more in depth about who Adam really is.
