    DescriptionIn the two years and 10 volumes since its debut in early 2005, "MAKE": has become one of the hottest reads and most celebrated new magazines to hit the newsstands with paid circulation exceeding 90,000, an estimated quarter million readers worldwide, newsstand sell-through nearly twice the industry norm, over 1 Million monthly visitors to the makezine.com website, and a podcast that consistently ranks in the top-25 computer & tech podcasts. "MAKE's" renegade personality and passionate following of tech enthusiasts and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) community has been featured extensively by major broadcast and print media - from CNN and CBS news, to NPR and Tech TV; from The Rolling Stone to "The New York Times", from "Newsweek" to "The Wall Street Journal". "MAKE's" editors are sought after guests on radio and TV Shows, ranging from NPR's "Science Friday" to Comedy Central's "Colbert Report".But the real story here is the curiosity, vibrance, and passion of Makers - the people who comprise the rapidly emerging "tech DIY" category. Citizen scientists, circuit benders, homemakers, students, automotive enthusiasts, roboticists, software developers, musicians, hackers, hobbyists, and crafters. Individuals and communities drawn together by a common passion for the magic of tinkering, hacking, and creation and finding imaginative and unexpected uses for the technology and materials in their lives. Born out of demand from both "MAKE" readers and the retail channel itself, "Best of MAKE" book is a collection of the very best DIY projects from the first 10 volumes, selected by the editors of "MAKE Magazine" for their popularity within the DIY community. The perfect gift for any maker, particularly those who may have missed the early volumes of the magazine.

    Review quote
    "... Nun hat die Redaktion ihre 75 liebsten Projekte in einer Sonderausgabe zusammengefasst. Die Auswahl reicht vom Übertakten eines Spielzeugroboters bis zum Papierflieger mit Laderaum für Flüssigkeiten als Wasserbomber; von Luftbildern mit dem Lenkdrachen bis zum iPod-Doppelkopfhörer für ein paar Gören auf der Autorückbank. [...] Diese wilde Mischung ist Absicht, denn die Redaktion will vor allem Lust aufs Basteln und Experimentieren mit Technik wecken. ..." - c't, Februar 2008
