I just scanned through all the 120+ projects in this book, and while most of them are way beyond my abilities (and interest - I have never felt the urge to make a "Ghetto AVR Programmer" - whatever that is), there were some very cool projects in the book.

A few of my favourites:
Real working light-sabre p252
Realistic Werewolf Costume p234 - seriously amazing!
Ipod Speaker made from one of those musical greeting cards p219
Lego flash drive case - p97
Gigantic Beanbag Sofa/Bed - p36 (WANT!)
Invisible Bookshelf - p16 Probably the easiest & a bookworm favorite!
Magic Wands - surprisingly easy, 20 minutes makes really amazing looking wand! examples: www.whimsicalwands.net & www.dadcando.com
Most irresistable: "Crafting a bento" p48 - making Japanese box lunches. These things are amazing, nutritionally balanced, and works of art! I need to get me some mini cookie cutters!

All of these projects and thousands more are already availabe on instructables.com, so I'm not sure why anyone would actually buy the book. Although, it would look great on a coffee table, or be a good bathroom book ;)
