This kind of Evil Genius book is long overdue. I like the series for the variety of projects, but honestly most are expensive, complicated and forget finding all the parts you need unless you work at a research center or university. This book is refreshingly different from the rest of the series. 101 Spy Gadgets is great! Reminds me of Popular Science projects I used to love making in my parents' basement. My favorite projects so far include the spy robot, computer hacking tips and the countermeasures. I used to make gadgets even more evil than these when I was a kid and believe me, my friends and I created some pretty dangerous stuff. Don't get me wrong - lots of the projects in this book are pretty intriguing for the mischevious minds, but it will appeal to many people of all ages. Wait until you learn about baby monitors and hacking cameras! The countermeasures gadgets are very cool! Makes you want to try your hand at being a super sleuth just to try out your inventions. I like the fact that there are many pictures, diagrams and schematics that are clear and easy to follow. These spy gadgets are useful, functional and encourage you to learn along the way. There is an excellent progression of projects throughout the book. I can tell that alot of thought was put into choosing and organizing projects logically. You don't have to be an expert in anything but you will learn quite a bit throughout the book because there is alot of theory explaining various technologies and principles along the way. What a refreshing addition to the Evil Genius collection. I'm glad to see that McGraw is getting back to the real Evil Genius roots. Hope to see more books in this series like this spy gadgets book. Two well deserved thumbs up!

I bought this book in attempt to keep myself occupied with some d.i.y. (do it yourself) projects. The gadgets you learn how to make are really pretty cool (though I'm not so sure it's a good idea to teach everyone how to make a high-powered taser from a small flashlight and some screws). I could see how many of these items would be useful to a self employed private investigator. My chief complaint is that the book is not terribly accessible to those without a background in electronics. The reader is frequently given circuit diagrams and told to solder part A here or there. Great if you know what you're doing, but intimidating if you're new to the d.i.y. project world.
