Amazing DIY book

Having recently stumbled upon this book I felt the need to share it with anyone possible. It's kind of a DIY reference manual of sorts called "Making Things Move" by Dustyn Roberts. This book is a great way to understand basic machines and mechanisms to intelligently incorporate them into your projects.

I have no idea why they don't make this required reading for all high school physics classes because it goes above and beyond what was taught in my class, and does so in a fun and easy to understand manner. If you have even the slightest interest in figuring out how your window blinds are able to move, or why the big gear moves the little gear which turns the screw then this book is definitely for you. I found that the first chapter was available freely online, so here it is embedded below. This will probably get you hooked. If you decide to buy it's cheap enough at $18 or so over at Amazon.
