About the Author

I enjoyed reading Mark's 'manifesto', it comes across more like a series of related presentations / talking points then a fully developed thesis but isn't that what a manifesto is supposed to look like?
As some others have commented it's very much from the perspective of Tech Shop but I was expecting that since that's what he knows best. There are a few minor technical flaws but those only underscore that Hatch probably spends more of his time on airplanes and in conference rooms then he does actually using maker tools.
This is a well written book about the most exciting innovation happening now. Mark provides an understanding of the implications of 3D printing and open sourced software. He talks about how the job making engine in the US is increasingly in the hands of entrepreneurs, not the over paid CEOs of the Fortune 100.
Great read, especially for anyone with an idea for a new product.
But seriously I plan on joining the revolution. To many people are waiting for some politician to save them but people like Mark Hatch are just going to change the world through innovation. If we can just keep politicians from screwing things up too bad while we get things done I think it will work out fine. I would recommend this book to anybody who has ever bought a product and took it home to use it and thought, "This could have been designed better."
The book can tell you many successful Maker stories in the last several years and a glimpse of the future of Maker Movement in the world. If you want to know what Maker Movement is or want to become a Maker, this book can help you to explore this realm.
As a Maker beginner, I can see a big picture of Maker Movement in this book. Very Thanks Mark to write this wonderful book.
