There is something for everyone in this book. I often find that the instructions are more of a guide than a true step-by-step. There are places where you can customize, change, and modify as much as you want and many places where you just have to experiment to get it right. That's part of the fun of making! Projects range from simple afternoon entertainment to builds taking a weekend or more, but resulting in your own drone. This is a great book for adults or kids. Even if you don't think you'll build any of the projects, it is a great resource to flip through for inspiration when you are running low on ideas. If you have an iPad or other color reading device, I'd save the dough and grab the kindle version unless you MUST have paper in the shop. I find my laptop or tablet is always around though, so paper is only preferable if you really want it and feel like spending the extra $13. The paper is high quality and print is gorgeous though. If you have many issues of make magazine, you'll recognize some of the articles, but it's nice to have them in a categorized collection. Good job Make! Now go get building.
This new book - "The Best of >> Volume 2" is a great compilation of the magazine's past issues. There are nine chapters, starting with some essays on the Maker movement to an ultimate tool buying guide. The bulk of the book are the individual project break-downs. You get a fairly detailed account of how the project was accomplished and usually there is even a parts list and suggestions on where to find/buy them. Each project is illustrated with numerous color photos and diagrams. The instructions are pretty basic, there is an assumption that you can get from point A to B to C without a lot of hand holding.
If you're not already subscribing or buying the magazine, this Best of book is a great way to catch up on past projects featured in the magazine.
