"The great thing about the book is that even if you aren't going to do one project in it, it still makes for great reading and viewing, since nuggets of knowledge are included just about everywhere. Now I know the technical deal with LEDs, for instance, what they are exactly and what they're capable of...This is an unexpectedly transformative book — and the only one I can name that offers practical advice on how to create a board game."
-- John E. Mitchell, North Adams Transcript

"If you're at all into off-beat hacks, strange contraptions, and unusual conversation pieces, you'll find plenty to consider in The Best of MAKE. If you're already adept with electronics and soldering irons, there's not much in there that you won't be able to do. And if this is your first foray into that world, you can afford to make plenty of mistakes, as most of the projects use cast-off items you can find in your local junk yard or thrift shop. Either way, you'll have fun and learn a few things in the process. "
