HASH(0x91b5f2e8) étoiles sur 5 Shame on the author and the publisher for this ripoff! 18 août 2008
Par Tom E. Gunn - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Let me start out by saying that I buy a lot of books. Usually hundreds of books each year. I don't normally take the trouble to spend my precious time writing reviews of the books I read, because that ground has mostly been well covered by the time I've read one. A book has to have a strong effect on me for me to take the trouble of letting other potential readers know what I think. This book really made me angry. Angry that I was duped into spending my hard earned money on such a piece of useless garbage. I was offended by the fact that my intelligence was insulted repeatedly throughout this book. I think it might be the most disappointing book I've ever turned the pages on. If I could give it zero stars I would. Really it deserves negative stars. A trillion negative stars.

I can imagine that the author pitched this book to the publisher as a concept without really showing them more than a cocktail napkin outline. They probably gave him a page count that they wanted and then he screwed around until three days before the deadline before the manuscript was due and then he rushed out to his local Toys R Us scooped up a few items and went home and found some really lame ways to play with the junk and threw a book together out of that nonsense.

Seriously, going by the title and sub-title of this book I was expecting a cookbook on how to build modern techno-wonders out of everyday electronics items. Trust me there are zero techno-wonders found between the covers of this book. This book contains 98 percent filler and fluff and a scant smattering of ideas with no real instructions or details that are of any value.

First of all, the chapters are titled in such a way that you really can't tell what they are about. I believe this was intentionally done to cover the fact that they all are pretty much about nothing. Secondly, most of the "projects" in this book have nothing whatsoever to do with electronics. Third, most of the book is full of useless trivial filler. I can just picture the author two days before his deadline skimming his notebooks and previously published works for anything to fill the pages of this book. He starts off the introduction by telling us about the importance and the difficulty of recycling consumer electronics, which kind of builds your anticipation for things to come that are never actually delivered later in the book.

The first project is how he installed an iPod in his car. He bought a tape adapter, popped it into the cassette drive on his car stereo and plugged the jack from the adapter into the earphone output on his iPod. Now really who needs a book to tell them how to do something as simple as that? Most of the other projects are similarly stupid. He devotes an entire chapter telling you that you can use an old cell phone for the other features that the phone has, like phone book, clock, timer and calendar. DUHHH! He kind of shows you how to mount a bike computer to your bicycle, but I'm sure the instructions that came with the computer did it better. He gives you the idea of turning an old refrigerator into a meat smoker, but there are no real instructions on how to do it nor are there any illustrations or photos to give one some kind of a hint. But he does offer one brilliant nugget of wisdom: Don't forget to remove all the plastic parts from inside the refrigerator before using it as a smoker like he did, ruining his thanksgiving dinner.

Aside from the inane "projects" the book is filled mostly with useless trivia. It has the complete amended text for California's Assembly Bill 1103 which concerns the taxation of new bicycles for recycling old bicycles. He gives parts lists to turn and old piece of junk bike into an old piece of junk bike with expensive fancy parts. Nothing more, just the lists of parts. There is an entire section devoted to the importance of exercise which leads up to how to use a heart rate monitor. Then he goes on to devote another whole chapter to introduce you to to a really cool electronic gadget that builders and remodelers know as a stud finder. I actually started to get somewhat interested to see what he would build out of the stud finder only to be disappointed when he went on merely to show you how to find a stud in your wall without a stud finder by looking for signs of where the sheetrock has been nailed and measuring the common distance of 16 inches between studs once one stud has been found.

When he does finally get into something that is electronics related he shows you how to remove the circuit board from an iRobot Roomba, but then he fails to explain or even suggest what it could be used for.

There are transcripts of interviews he conducted of a couple of people who are involved in some way with robotics, and although somewhat interesting they shed absolutely no light on how to build modern techno-wonders out of everyday electronics items.

I suspect that Helen Greiner penned the foreword to this book months before the author began assembling this heap of excrement. Had she known what this book would end up being I'm sure she would have ran screaming away from it as fast and as far as she could get.

HASH(0x91b5f33c) étoiles sur 5 The real hack is the author! 2 octobre 2006

I waited for this book after seeing his remote controlled weed-eater in Popular Science. I was extremely dissapointed with the content of this book. There are a lot of good ideas, but the best ones are not doucumented enough for the novice to pull off the hack. Buy Home Hacking Projects For Geeks instead, it details some good hacks from start to finish, not this book's stupid infantile projects.

HASH(0x91b5f774) étoiles sur 5 What?? 4 juillet 2007

What was this supposed to be? I'm not quite sure. Looks like someone's random thought patterns that were published. Not much value as a DIY book and very little entertainment value. The author is obviously smart but this book is not very well though out or put together. A rip off at a fraction of the price. This guy has 27 other books published, go figure.

this was supposed to be a book on hacking everyday objects, yet all it really is is the IDEAS, not the methods. I'm fortunate that this was in my library, so I did not waste my money buying it.
this is such a piece of crap that I actually bothered to log in to review it, and all I'm out of is my time, trying to sift through this book.

Look, the weedwacker head is mounted backwards on the rc car, and it's not even the proper one.. there's no motor in it!!

There's nothing to recommend checking it out from your library, let alone buying it. May I suggest the fine works published by O'Reilly instead? Make magazine comes to mind

HASH(0x91b5fc24) étoiles sur 5 A dissapointing, misguiding waste of money. 23 juillet 2010

Unfortunately, I had not read the reviews before ordering this book. The title and abstract seemed promising enough and at the price make it seemed like a bargain. Despite the cover, this book provides no detailed information on how to do what it claims to be about: instructing the amateur on transforming various electronics. Instead, it simply puts forward ideas of items that can be hacked, completely omitting useful citations.
