Bob Parks, Makers, O'Reilly

If you've seen the magazine Make you'll know what this is about ... which is people making all kinds of interesting things using some interesting components. This book is a hardback with nice glossy photos and features a variety of people and their projects. It is more an interesting overview than a howto however and instructions are not included. There are URLs given though, so people can delve further if they want. Most of all it is inspirational and some flavor of each person involved makes it interesting in that way as well. The projects include a spherical sleep-in treehouse, clocks based on nixies, a bedroom tornado machine, a voice-actuated blender, and much more.
