Top critical review
I saw some good reviews on the Kindle edition
Reviewed in the United States on August 1, 2017
I saw some good reviews on the Kindle edition, but I have just the paperback edition. And it does not meet my needs. The reviews I read on the Kindle edition says it has a cross-reference. The paperback edition does not.
Drawings and very short descriptions, that's all you'll find in this book. No instructions on building any of the movements, no measurements, although a few of the pulley type drawings I saw did have ratios in the description.
I wanted something to help me build simple toys out of wood and cardboard, plastic and string. I wanted to be able to search for ideas like using a motor to make levers wave in different directions, but this book does not have a way of searching the drawings. It doesn't have exploded views to help you make your own. It only has drawings and short descriptions. It did not suit my needs.
