Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Cool Tools is a highly curated selection of the best tools available for individuals and small groups. Tools include hand tools, maps, how-to books, vehicles, software, specialized devices, gizmos, websites -- and anything useful. Tools are selected and presented in the book if they are the best of kind, the cheapest, or the only thing available that will do the job. This is an oversized book which reviews over 1,500 different tools, explaining why each one is great, and what its benefits are. Indirectly the book illuminates the possibilities contained in such tools and the whole catalog serves an education outside the classroom. The content in this book was derived from ten years of user reviews published at the Cool Tools website, cool-tools.org.

Book Description: Cool Tools Lab, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities : "There is something magical in the book's juxtaposition of stuff, folklore and product reviews ." - New York Times "This may well be the greatest catalog of all-time." - Engadget "The result is something more than just a paper-bound list of awesome objects. It's a tool itself." - Wired "This wonderful book is so much more than hardware and electronics however, this is 472 pages of inspired genius." - Time Out "It's 460+ full-color pages of ear-to-ear grinning, hours of ooh-ing and aah-ing, and years of repetitive page-turning." - GeekDad "It is like sitting with the old Sunday funnies, slowly poring over the colorful illustrations and finding surprises on every page." - The Joiner's Apprentice "A real geek's geek-guide to tools." - American Design and Master-Craft Initiative "Guaranteed you will want 4,000 things from this huge catalogue." - The Coast "What a knockout! Book of the year!" - Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons "When this fabulous, amazing, unputdownable book arrived at my studio I immediately spent two and a half hours in it, and then the next morning passed another three-hour stint of 'Wow - look at this! I could do that!' This book is more exciting - in both what it actually offers and what kind of life it suggests - than anything I've read for a very long time. It's an outstanding achievement in every sense - content, design, and quality. - Brian Eno , musician, artist "Flipping through Cool Tools is a completely different experience from reading the same material online. Long live dead trees!" - David Pescovitz , Boing Boing "If this doesn't solve some large part of your Christmas shopping challenges, you need a different set of people to whom you give Christmas presents. The book itself (a real print 463-page glossy-stock oversizer) is great either for young people starting a home, or geezers who are in touch with their youth who might want to be shocked and reminded why so much of their take-control-of-your-own-life life is the way it is, or somebody who just could use a striking coffee-table conversation-starter/stopper. And then there are the hundreds and hundreds of amazing things - "tools" defined extremely widely and deeply as stuff that really works reviewed by people who've actually used them - to give you more gift ideas." - Joel Garreau , The Washington Post , author of Edge City and Radical Evolution.
