Take a trip down memory lane with this nostalgic meandering of projects gleaned from early 1900s Popular Mechanicsmagazine's pages. These projects and instructions may have been understood by Mr. Wizard but will not be by today's youth. None of the projects has been updated, and most should be supervised by an adult if attempted. Some are magic-trick and sleight-of-hand aides; others involve toys. Still others are highly mechanical or electrical in nature, not to mention completely impractical (however, the editors make no promises regarding feasibility or safety). Filled with quaint illustrations, this book is nothing more than historic fluff. Recommended only where there is demand.
