From the Author:

I had great fun designing and making the projects in this book. Its a collection of all the things I have wanted to make, but just didn't have the time. In researching the projects, I sometimes found that free web resources would take you part way there then leave you dangling. I have tried not to leave any holes, every project has been made to the instructions in the book. There are very detailed instructions for every project and, for the electronic projects, parts lists with part numbers from suppliers. The benefit of working with a great publisher like McGraw Hill is that their process is all about quality. Its a book not a blog, it has to be right.I hope there is a project that appeals to everyone.
