"I learned a great deal from this book even though I have been associated with the great Philadelphia Makerspace Hive76 for more than 3 years and had an article in Make Magazine on Biosensors. It is the information and encouragement you need to achieve your ambitions and Making whatever your Dreams will allow."
-- Ira Laefsky,, MS Engineering/MBA Information Technology and HCI Researcher and Maker at Hive76 of Philadelphia

"Are you a closet inventor? Have you heard about the strange new thing called 3-D printing and would like to try your hand at it? Do you believe you could create electronic devices to solve problems around Zero To Makerthe home or office? If any of these sounds like you, then you may be a "maker". Makers are those among us who dream of better ways to do things and creative uses for the objects around us. They are the tinkerers and programmers, the hackers and explorers. If any of this sounds appealing to you, then the book "Zero to Maker: Learn (Just Enough) to Make (Just About) Anything" by David Lang is a good place for you to start." Full Review >

"This book left me a bit unsatisfied. It has many good parts in it but fails to bring all together. The parts just don't make a coherent book. After saying this I do need so say that the parts themselves are informative and thought provoking." Full Review >

"When I opened this book I was impressed on the image/text ratio. Being a Maker Media product, I thought it was somehow similar to the Make magazine. I was very wrong: in the whole book there are less then 10 images/photos." Full Review >
