New York, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
In “Makers at Work” released by Apress Media, author Steven Osborn puts a spotlight on the makers who are reinventing the world one object or idea at a time, and helps make sense of the new products driving the technological revolution. According to Osborn, “it is the only book of interviews and stories from the thought-leaders and entrepreneurs leading the charge.”
The book defines what a maker actually is, and references different types of makers all the way from an electronic hobbyist, to a kitchen table inventor. Learn how the makers master the magic of making sophisticated products available to customers faster than most large corporations do, and how the masterpiece products are funded, manufactured, assembled, and delivered. The makers explain how to make weekend projects profitable, how to use crowd funding to make small visions a big reality, and how to use open-source hardware and software to remove entry barriers for inventors.
Readers are not just privy to reading 21 in-depth interviews by Osborn, but also get to step into the minds, thoughts, and logic of the most successful makers in the field, who have turned their ordinary visions into realistic, and extraordinary technological gold.
