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)

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.

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!

Must read for makers!!!

Anyone who has or desires to have a desire to have a workshop and build things, or who is just interested in the people who make the things you love definitely should give this a listen, invaluable information within and a great shortcut to learning some things the hard way.

A Book for Budding Makers ... and the rest of us

This book is inspirational for young budding makers, but good for the rest of us too. From a young age I've always had a passion to build stuff and always viewed it as somewhat a character flaw. That never held me back (I'm 60+), but this book helped me understand myself. I also picked up a few organizational and build tips.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes to build things, young or old.
