    Chris Anderson takes you to the front lines of a new industrial revolution as today’s entrepreneurs, using open source design and 3-D printing, bring manufacturing to the desktop. In an age of custom-fabricated, do-it-yourself product design and creation, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers and enthusiasts is about to be unleashed, driving a resurgence of American manufacturing. A generation of "Makers" using the Web’s innovation model will help drive the next big wave in the global economy, as the new technologies of digital design and rapid prototyping gives everyone the power to invent.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Chris Andersen has been accurate in the past with uncovering important phenomena associated with technology advancement, consumer demand and general business economics i.e. the long tail. I think he is very right again with the potential impact of custom fabrication and DIY design and manufacturing. He brings his ideas to light with many relevant examples.


    What other book might you compare Makers to and why?

    It does for manufacturing and design what "The Long Tail" did for retail.
    Also has similarities to "Wikinomics" by Don Tapscot.


    What does Rene Ruiz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not much. Pretty standard narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It just made me think.


    Any additional comments?

    Great for entrepreneurs thinking about finding an opportunity in an emerging wave of change.
