It's #BookTuesday!

Every Tuesday, Queens Public Library will introduce you to a great book!

Our #BookTuesday pick is Every Tool's A Hammer: Life is What You Make It by Adam Savage.

Adam Savage—star of Discovery Channel's Mythbusters and one of the most beloved figures in science and tech—shares his golden rules of creativity, from finding inspiration to following through and successfully making your idea a reality.

Every Tool's a Hammer is a chronicle of my life as a maker. It's an exploration of making and of my own productive obsessions, but it's also a permission slip of sorts from me to you. Permission to grab hold of the things you're interested in, that fascinate you, and to dive deeper into them to see where they lead you.”

“Through stories from forty-plus years of making and molding, building and break­ing, along with the lessons I learned along the way, this book is meant to be a toolbox of problem solving, complete with a shop's worth of notes on the tools, techniques, and materials that I use most often. Things like: don't wait until everything is perfect to begin a project, and if you don't have the exact right tool for a task, just use whatever's handy; making is messy and filled with screwups, but that's okay, as creativity is a path with twists and turns and not a straight line to be found; and more.”

“I hope this book inspires you to build, make, invent, explore, and—most of all—enjoy the thrills of being a creator.”
