Take Away Lifelong creativity is a learned skill, one fostered and nurtured in childhood. In this collection of essays and interviews, the featured Makers discuss how lighting stuff on fire, blowing stuff up, and having the freedom to experiment with failure sparked an interest that has sustained them into adulthood. When author David Lang lost his desk job, he realized that he had no skills that didn't involve sitting in front of a computer. Over the course of a year, he set out to learn essential Maker skills, eventually launching an open source underwater robotics company. If he can do it, anyone can. What does it take to make the leap from hobbyist to professional? In this series of essays and interviews, professional Makers examine the obstacles, challenges, and rewards of making what they love to do actually become a career.
Desire With Which You'll be Seized After Reading This Book To hand your child matches. To explore an underwater gold mine. To quit your day job.
