3. Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America
Author: by Annie Jacobsen
Back Bay Books
The remarkable story of America’s secret post-WWII science programs (The Boston Globe), from the New York Times bestselling author of Area 51. In the chaos following World War II, the U.S. Government faced many difficult decisions, including what to do with the Third Reich’s scientific minds.
These were the brains behind the Nazis’ once-indomitable war machine. So began Operation Paperclip, a decades-long, covert project to bring Hitler’s scientists and their families to the United States. Many of these men were accused of war crimes, and others had stood trial at Nuremberg; one was convicted of mass murder and slavery.
They were also directly responsible for major advances in rocketry, medical treatments, and the U.S.Space program. Was Operation Paperclip a moral outrage, or did it help America win the Cold War? Drawing on exclusive interviews with dozens of Paperclip family members, colleagues, and interrogators, and with access to German archival documents (including previously unseen papers made available by direct descendants of the Third Reich’s ranking members), files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and dossiers discovered in government archives and at Harvard University, Annie Jacobsen follows more than a dozen German scientists through their postwar lives and into a startling, complex, nefarious, and jealously guarded government secret of the twentieth century.

7. Make: Electronics: Learning Through Discovery
Author: by Charles Platt
Make Community, LLC
“This is teaching at its best!” Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer (the world’s most successful integrated circuit).”A fabulous book: well written, well paced, fun, and informative. I also love the sense of humor. It’s very good at disarming the fear.And it’s gorgeous.
I’ll be recommending this book highly.” Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things Talk. A “magnificent and rewarding book…. Every step of this structured instruction is expertly illustrated with photos and crisp diagrams…. This really is the best way to learn.” Kevin Kelly, in Cool Tools.
The first edition of Make: Electronics established a new benchmark for introductory texts. This second edition enhances that learning experience. Using full color on every page, hundreds of photographs and diagrams convey concepts with unmatched clarity. Platt uses a hands on approach throughout.
You learn by building your own simple circuits. You begin by blowing a fuse or burning out an LED to demonstrate voltage, amperage, and electrical resistance. As it says on the cover, “Burn things out, mess things up that’s how you learn!”The hands on approach continues with basic switching circuits.

14. Every Tool's a Hammer: Life Is What You Make It
Author: by Adam Savage
In this New York Times bestselling imperative how-to for creativity (Nick Offerman), Adam Savagestar of Discovery Channel’s Mythbustersshares 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, 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: In Every Tool There Is a Hammerdon’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; Increase Your Loose Tolerancemaking 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; Use More Cooling Fluidit prolongs the life of blades and bits, and it prevents tool failure, but beyond that it’s a reminder to slow down and reduce the friction in your work and relationships; Screw Before You Gluemechanical fasteners allow you to change and modify a project while glue is forever but sometimes you just need the right glue, so I dig into which ones will do the job with the least harm and best effects.
