Cool Tools is a highly curated selection of the best tools available for individuals and small groups. Tools include hand tools, maps, how-to books, vehicles, software, specialized devices, gizmos, websites — and anything useful. Tools are selected and presented in the book if they are the best of kind, the cheapest, or the only thing available that will do the job. This is an oversized book that reviews over 1,500 different tools, explaining why each one is great, and what its benefits are. Indirectly the book illuminates the possibilities contained in such tools and the whole catalog serves as an education outside the classroom. The content in this book was derived from ten years of user reviews published at the Cool Tools website, cool-tools.org.
Nate picked this on episode Episode 51: Holiday Gift Guide: TV Streaming Devices.
This makes a great gift and/or coffee table book! We have our own copy, and got it for my father-in-law and he enjoyed it greatly. Lots of interesting things inside to help with idea generation, project planning or just conversation.
