Every Tool’s a Hammer: Life is What You Make It

Adam Savage

Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame, has written a combination memoir and maker advice book. With decades of experience making props and sets for major studios like Industrial Light and Magic, then 20 seasons of the incredibly popular Mythbusters show, Savage knows what he is talking about. Always a tinkerer, Savage is one of those fortunate people who has turned their love of making things into a massively successful career. Loaded with fun and funny anecdotes, Savage simultaneously goes to lengths explaining his methodology and what he has learned along the way. His creativity doesn’t just extend to what he is making, but also his shop layout, choice of tools, and preparation. Like Art and Fear, this book is an excellent kick in the creative pants for anyone who wants to create.
