    • I really liked this book If you are looking for a Mythbusters tell all this is not the book for you.This is part how his mind works, bio, how to, and self help He is funny, full of energy and seem like the guy you saw on Mythbusters is exactly who he is.


    • I m not a big fan of Mythbusters Adam Savage He can come across as loud, obnoxious and wanting the one liners all the time.I am a huge fan of Adam Savage though He is a gentle man full of passion, care and wisdom I have gotten to know him over the years on Tested I found tested about 2 months before Adam joined, in the heyday of Norm and Will Adam fitted in so well.Over the years, through videos and podcasts, Adam has been a source of wisdom and inspiration He s all let your freak f I m not a bi [...]


    • So many books on success principles are rooted in the business world it s refreshing to have one built around the joys of makerspace Adam Savage s unbridled enthusiasm and his willingness to share both his triumphs and this is what you should not do let that be a lesson to you experiences make this a fun read for dreamers, builders, artists, crafters, writers, cosplayers, and of course, Mythbusters and Tested fans.


    • If you re looking for a complete autobiography, this isn t the book for you There are some personal stories, but they aren t really the main focus If you re looking for a glimpse into a makers creative process and progress, and possibly a little motivation of your own, I highly recommend this book.

    • Loved this book So much encouragement to embrace our eccentricities and obsessions, and that through our differences we find greatness Plus practical tips Proclaim loudly I am a crafter, I am a maker


    • Most people who know me, know that I am a big fan of Adam Savage And boy, was I excited when I heard he was busy writing a book I rarely pre order books, but this one was paid for as soon I could give someone my money Equal parts instructional, philosophical and autobiographical, I had such a good time reading this Almost every single chapter left me excited to try something new or to improve the way I do something how I make lists, how I set deadlines, how I use glue vs mechanical ways to Most [...]
