""ZERO TO MAKER is an irresistible guide for anyone who has ever dreamed of the alchemy of turning ordinary objects into a creation of great personal value. This is the one book you need to build your confidence, community, and really dig in!""
"--"LISA GANSKY, author of" The Mesh"
""David Lang is an inspiration to anyone who has dreamed of making, but has been hesitant to start because they feel they don't have the necessary skills. As David will show you, all it takes is curiosity, passion, and a willingness to learn from your mistakes.""
--MARK FRAUENFELDER, Editor-in-Chief, MAKE Magazine

He is also the writer of the popular Zero to Maker column on Makezine.com, which is a public diary of his headfirst dive into the maker world.

You will learn about Lang's journey and get a broad overview of some of the "new" tools (3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines, etc.). However, Lang's formula for "learning just enough to make just about anything" is to find a "makerspace" or "hackerspace," learn from others (who are often novices themselves), and essentially, figure it out as you go along. To his credit, there are several references to other books and lists that have more specific advice, however, these resources are not free. Your money may be better spent on these resources instead of this book.
A large portion of the book is dedicated to monetizing your "maker" creations. There's business advice, patent advice. There's a chapter on teaching children how to use these tools. Together this makes up about a third of the book. If you, like me, are more interested in making things for personal gratification and are not interested in quitting your day job or becoming an entrepreneur, these portions will seem like fluff that could have been better used fulfilling the promise in the subtitle.
Lang admits in the epilogue that his subtitle was ambitious, but by his own assessment, he feels that he met the challenge. I am less convinced. Overall, there is some good information in the midst of all the fluff. If nothing else, it's a fast-paced and entertaining read. 3/5
My biggest issue so far was that I lacked the DIT and was always going solo on projects. I have since expanded and found a makerspace. Think has helped tremendously as meet like minded people are a great source of inspiriation. That what this book set out to do and it nails it on the head. Its not about telling you how to make things but rather explaining how to setup that support system and maximize your maker potential.
I supported David's Kickstarter to write this book, I've read it on the web in pre-release, I'm getting the ebook from the Kickstarter, and I'm buying a physical copy because this book is *that* important. This is the kind of book that you can't wait to recommend to someone when you find out they're interested in the subject.
As the Maker movement grows around the world, more and more people are becoming inspired to create things. Anyone at any level of skill can learn from this book. David has been in the center of many different branches of the Maker movement and reports on them all - hackerspaces, electronics, Arduino, learning from scratch, sharing, finding ideas, working with others, community, writing, promotion, Kickstarter, Maker Faire, licensing, starting companies, etc.
But this book is not just for Makers. It is an outstanding guide for building your own skills and presence in ANY creative field. The pattern, told through a Maker lens, is:
1. Find something you're interested in and want to learn
2. Find people doing that thing
3. Ask them what they're working on and what they recommend learning
4. Do some project involving the thing you want to learn
5. Share your results (good or bad) and solicit feedback
6. Based on experiences and feedback, return to step 1 and repeat forever
It's also well written and delightful to read because of David's writing skill and the breadth of his Maker experiences.
CONCLUSION: This book will grow to be a cherished and work fixture on the shelf of anyone who loves learning and making. There's no substitute for doing, but this book will guide your doing in the right direction. Whether you're a pro or completely new, learning for fun or inventing a new career, making your first prototype or turning a project into a business, David will give you confidence and clarity as you move forward. Don't let the title fool you, you're never done becoming a Maker.
The book very nicely addresses the different anxieties you could have around becoming a Maker (most notably the "I don't know what to make" syndrom). It offers a unique look into the author's own journey. I strongly recommend reading this, and then putting the book down and go get your hands dirty on something!
