Fair warning: No matter how fast you read, do not expect to churn through this one in a day or two. It is dense information which while invaluable, will take a bit to correlate and digest. Take the time to do so; it is well worth the effort. Consider this book professional development for the hardware maker regardless of specific area of skill or interest.
This book will occupy a prominent place on my bookshelf as a reference guide, and I am no noob in the movement. I have several open hardware projects under my belt, having presented these at several maker faires I was able to attend. One of my projects is even mentioned in the book (Ground Sphere satellite ground station receiver, pp 142). My point is that in spite of my experience, I learned a lot from the work that Alicia Gibb clearly put into this masterpiece.
If you are involved in the open hardware movement in any aspect, or intend to be, you cannot do without this book. Not only does it contain all the information you need, including checklists in the back, it also contains a list of additional sources that read like a who's who of the movement and companies you need to have on speed dial.
Just buy it already!
