This is a totally cool book full of brilliant gadgets made from regular household utensils from plastic spoons to paper clips! My neice and I had a ball with the Double Barreled Band Gun and I found myself indulging in making a few other "weapons" on my own like the Mini Tin Catapult which is made from a small mint container and a plastic spoon basically and I used it to play with my dogs with. I would launch their dog food treats into the living room and they would dash after them. Spent hours...more

Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction 2: Build a Secret Agent Arsenal by John Austen is the sequel to Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction.

If you haven't read either of them, they contain instructions to build all sorts of neat weapons that are meant for "office warfare". I've never worked in an office with that kind of office warfare but I really like both books.

I really don't recommend this at all for kids or adults who are liable to shoot the weapons at each other.

I'm a fan because of interesting proj...more
I think my expectations were a little too high for this book--most of the guns use the same firing mechanism (the end of a balloon) and only differ cosmetically. Nonetheless, it would be a fun book to do some projects out of with a kid (or nephew).

Pg 111 has a Q-pick blowgun that might be one of things I'd be most interested in making, even on my own. Pretty cool stuff.

Rating: PG, but only if you're going to actually be making things from it--you'll need a utility knife, and you don't want your...more

My idea of this book is that, it's not REALLY a book for the city- I would not make anything in this book in the City, nether would I make anything that is in the first book (MiniWeapons of mass Destruction, READ IT D:<) but yeah, I think it would be a better idea to explain the book instead of explain one weapon from it (its a book about spy weapons that are home made) and explaining a weapon from the book would be weird, and if you want to know about the weapons in here then....

Austin served with the British Army in Sicily and Malta, but sold his officer's commission to study law. He became a member of the Bar during 1818. He discontinued his law practice soon after, devoted himself to the study of law as a science, and became Professor of Jur...more
