Description

MythBusters’ Adam Savage - Discovery Channel star and one of the most beloved figures in science and tech - shares his golden rules of creativity, from finding inspiration to following through and successfully turning your idea into reality. 

Adam Savage is a maker. From Chewbacca’s bandolier to a thousand-shot Nerf gun, he has built thousands of spectacular projects as a special effects artist and the cohost of MythBusters. Adam is also an educator, passionate about instilling the principles of making in the next generation of inventors and inspiring them to turn their curiosity into creation.

In this practical and passionate guide, Adam weaves together vivid personal stories, original sketches and photographs from some of his most memorable projects, and interviews with many of his iconic and visionary friends in the arts and sciences - including Pixar director Andrew Stanton, Nick Offerman, Oscar-winner Guillermo Del Toro and artist Tom Sachs - to demonstrate the many lessons he has picked up from a lifetime of making.

Things like: don’t wait until everything is perfect - in your workshop or in your life - to begin. Plan with pencil and paper. Sweep up every day. Learn from doing. Share your toys. There is an exact tool for every task (Adam probably has four of them in his wondrous shop), but if you need to pound in a nail and all you have handy is a skill saw - hammer away. The most important thing, always, is just that you make something.

Every Tool’s a Hammer is sure to guide and inspire you to build, make, invent, explore and, most of all, enjoy the thrills of being a creator.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Adam has drawn for us an imperative how-to for creativity... I am aware of no human outside of fiction more qualified to pen this rousing paean to making. I adore this book," (Nick Offerman, star of Parks and Recreation)

A Superb Listen!

I absolutely loved this book, and it was made even sweeter by the fact that it was narrated/read by the author himself. Much of Adam’s wisdom & knowledge is very much applicable to other domains outside of making. As someone who has built an awful lot things out of cardboard over the years, I very much identify with this maker movement. ✂️📐

A must read for any and all creatives

Loved the more personal style Adam read this in, and the content itself resonated like it came from my own brain. A must read(/listen) for any type of creative!

It explains precisely the title

It explains with examples the true nature of the human deliverable, and what a person can achieve with determination.

Adam Savage Just Gets Me

I loved every minute of this book. There were moments where I just wanted to cry while listening to Adam Savage speaking, because it felt like he just understood me the way few other people ever have.

This book has excited me and inspired me more than I can describe. I cannot wait to get started on my next project.

Dude. Like dude. Dang

This book is so good. I love watching tested and Adams one day builds and when I listened to this book it was like I could finally understand and connect some things that he does in his shop with his past. I could feel his passion and hard work that he put into this book and it was even better because he was the one reading it. I don’t read. I really don’t read. But I really liked this.

Markers & Project Managers needs these principles

Mr. Savage has delivered a handbook of the tools one needs to complete a project, either for yourself or for professional purposes. Clearly he has the experience necessary to boil down his essential thoughts into an entertaining story with practical, daily-use principles. I appreciate his insight.

My new go to gift!

I loved this book I’ve been a huge fan of Adam Savage ever since I saw Myth busters as a kid. If you are a creative person, a writer or as Adam put it a maker of any kind you’ll love this book, and if you work in the restaurant or culinary industry there’s one part only about ten minutes long or so but it will make you swell with pride for our profession! This will be my go to gift for any and every creative or maker person in my life from here on out! Only down side I was actually pretty surprised and bummed he didn’t say I object to reality and substitute my own.

Sun Tzu of Makers

Adam Savage is a master story teller and a creative Genius. The instructions and advice provided within the pages of Every Tool's a Hammer is nothing short of poetry for the Creative Maker the World over. This is a Coming of age tale of the trials and tribulations that every young maker must discover in their own way. It's a great read.

fairly good

Adam reads it beautiful but it was somewhere strangely between and a memoir and guide for people who know what they are doing and a starter's guide. but never landing in one spot clearly.
I liked it and got good stuff out of it but I didn't take away as much as I thought I would. maybe I'm just not the target audience. as I'm more of a carpenter then a maker in the way Adam defines himself.

Really only for people that identify as “makers”

Not what I thought. Really more of a how-to book on organising and following process when making something, particularly models and replicas.

Wonderfully Inspiring and Practical!

This book, for me, is already changing my life. Adam is a genius. and he's sharing tips on what helps him create with passion--practical stuff you can start doing immediately. I love his solution on how to avoid boredom & stagnation on a project. As a knitter, I've started a great number of sweaters, only to get bored, put the unfinished project away and start a new one. I always wondered what was wrong with me. Now I know how to overcome it, and I've already finished one of my MANY sweater projects! So exciting! LOVE, LOVE THIS BOOK!
