    I haven’t read this book yet. I’ve just flipped through the pages. That’s all I needed to know that it is what I was looking for. It comes from a professional source, is well illustrated, and requires no engineering background to understand.

    I’m one of those people who are interested in doing many things but always had other things that took up my time. Business management, biology, and cancer detection paid the bills and was almost all I could handle.

    I’m retired now and too old to take on college level engineering courses, and I’m more interested in my photography hobby anyway.

    The reason I purchased this book is because all my life I’ve had a special invention circulating around in my brain. Problem was that each test unit I built broke as soon as I turned on the power. Still, maybe my brainstorm invention can actually be made. This book, Making Things Move, is more in line with what I can handle. Even if it doesn’t help me make my brainstorm it’s sure to provide fun activities.

    I haven’t had this much fun since receiving my first erector set as a child. I have always loved machines and computers, but my career took a less technical path and I lacked critical skills and knowledge to build the machines that integrated the two. Dustyn Roberts helped me fill in the gaps with instruction and inspiration in a format that is thoroughly entertaining. The projects in this book are fun, clearly described and acquaint the reader with general principles that can be applied in many contexts. Making Things Move would be a great gift for an inquisitive mind, young or old.

    This book is a must-have for electronic hobbyists who want to transform circuits into mechanical motion for work or play. It covers everything from basic electronics to fabricating metal and wood parts for your projects. Salted through the text are notes on where to buy necessary parts, including part numbers for suppliers such as allelectronics.com. The concepts are explained in detail, and they can be mixed and matched to come up with your own mechanisms. Some reviewers here thought the book too basic and, indeed, it does cover entry-level techniques such as soldering. Some folks will need that. Others won’t. But the book also ranges to complicated projects that even seasoned hobbyists would find challenging (such as fabricating a solar-powered drawing machine that interacts with passers-by).
