Instructables Book

We've published a book of Instructables!

Order your copy of The Best of Instructables Volume 1 here!

See the latest news about The Best of Instructables Volume 1 here.

I just got the contract worked out with O'Reilly Media/MAKE, who is publishing the book. Details are still being finalized, but the book will look something like this: 75 (maybe?) full Instructables and 50 (maybe?) mentions (author, intro image and text maybe?) of Instructables in a community-choice section. The Instructables in the community-choice section will be chosen by a month-long contest open to Instructables published at any point in the past. The top Instructables by votes in the contest will be included. The full Instructables will be chosen by the people at Instructables, the O'Reilly and MAKE editors, and using the results of the book contest. If your project is selected, we'll ask for your permission and give you a free copy of the book.

We're hoping to have it out in time for the Austin Maker Faire in October.

These details are likely to change, but I'm so excited that I wanted to share them even at this early stage. We'll do a formal announcement when we know more, so consider this your sneak-preview.

Updated: Number of full Instructables from 100 to 75.

2008-07-03 Update: Right now, it looks like we'll be including approximately 50 Instructables in the community choice section of the book as chosen by our Instructables Book Contest. This section will have 8-10 Instructables per page and each Instructable will have the author, title, intro text and image. Everyone mentioned will receive a free copy. As usual we'll be eliminating fraudulent votes.

75 full Instructables will be included as chosen by editors at Instructables, MAKE, and O'Reilly. Obviously, we'll be watching the results of the contest closely to make sure we didn't miss anything!

Since print and internet are such different mediums, part of the selection process is finding Instructables will exceptional images and well-written text. Since any Instructable can be included, now is a great time to make sure your images are top-notch and maybe add a few more, if you can.

2008-09-01 Update: If your Instructable is in the top 50 sorted by user votes, you are definitely in the community choice section. Depending on how many of those 50 are included as full Instructables in the book, the community choice section may include more Instructables. We are working hard at getting everything organized and ready for the book launch in October.

May I have a free copy? Pleeeeeeeeeease! :-)
If I had an extra copy, I'd give you one But they cost nearly $35....
You can buy them used, far cheaper, from Amazon.
blkhawk Kiteman2 years ago
Just kidding! I will make a check with my "bouncy" checkbook account! :-)
You sound like my first wife LOL
:-P
My current wife doesn't bounce checks.....she uses credit cards LOL
AWESOME! I'm SO going to be the first one to buy the book. *pushes Eric, Christy, Noah, everyone else at Instructables out of the way* *kicks Keith-Kid in the leg, grabs, throws him across the room* *pushes (extremely hard) caitlinsdad out of the way* Ahhh. It feels great to be 1st in line. Take that pizza eaters!!!
*teleports in front of GM*

BITE ME

*Bites RocketScientist2015* *Kicks him with newly acquired orthopedic cast*
*force jumps, whips out lightsaber, lops off Keith's plastered limb*
*sets up a force shield keeping him in front, meditates*
charges rail gun, producing high power em field that destabilizes rs's force feil, causing his field to explode. cue Oscar, to music.
Argh damn you! *Snaps out of meditation and incinerates Oscar with lightsaber while force chocking tech-king*
oscar is fire-proof, remember? as to your chocking, i have a personal positive electrical field around me. anyone who touches me (fools) are grounded, thus getting electrical shocks.
Stuff and nonsense, a lightsaber burns through everything, and the force wouldn't get me shocked.
you cant burn through asbestos! and fine. we go with plan B. Oscar throws lime on you. i spray you with garden hose. you vanish in a column of flame.
A lightsaber is pure energy, it goes through anything. Ana water hose does you no good when I've phased out of your dimension.
the water hose itself wouldnt hurt you. the now wet lime would. pure energy is still energy. and i can transform it! for i am tech-king the almighty! and all energy can be transformed! *transforms energy from lightsaber into power for the tech-king industries plasma canons.
Whoopdi-doo. I always carry a spare... *nukes and EMPs Tech-King industries* *places an army in front of the line to hold his place*
n8man KentsOkay6 years ago
Lands in middle of army, Explodes, reforms with my awesome technology, and gets first copy.
n8man n8man6 years ago
*Realizes in all of this fighting that all of the copies have been destroyed and figures out that the explosion destroyed most of Texas, goes home and orders book online then has a revalation* Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! I destroyed the instructables servers, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Derin n8man6 years ago
*gets new servers and programs them to send AHEM...some coal
n8man Derin6 years ago
You aren't santa and I wasn't the worst in this contest. I only intended to destroy Rocket Scientist's army.

innocent whistle
*Gets the record for comment with least width. ever.*
I just got in line in front of you...care to argue, hehe?
1864881094_b0753c6daa.jpg
If it involves the record for skinniest comment, then yes.
It's on.
Oh, right, my witty retort that others have been involving rail guns, cannibalism, and a number of other barbaric things with... Orangeshyme karate chops Keith's leg and uses the cast to severely dull mrfixits saw, then pulling his hood down so his eyeholes are useless, then tripping him backwards down a flight of stairs.
Luckily, mrfixits cat-like reactions enable him to backward somersault down the stairs, leaving the screaming Tesla CD Turbine saw (now acting more like a grinder, after that punch to the saw teeth), saving his place at the first of the Instructables Book lineup!
*I explode and destroy your saw then reform and send a homing missile after you (yes it's french)*
My exploding saw sends magnetic fragments from it's 54 neodymium disc magnets in all directions, confusing the homing beacon and sending the missle harmlessly away into a nearby school. (Fortunately for the school kids, school is out...permanently in this case!) Leaving me unscathed, still at the front of the Instructables Book line.
Umm minor issue, what would you say is the best technique to get magnet fragments out of my left buttcheek, your exploding turbine was cool and all but I keep getting stuck to park benches and stuff...
Heh, sorry about that. The only solution is the "Hair of the Dog" technique. In this case, you'll have to back up to an electromagnetic crane at the local scrapyard. They'll understand...they get it all the time.
Damnit, they swapped to grab cranes only... Guess I'll just find a way to make use of it... *puts coils in his back pockets and hooks them up to a simple charge circuit... Success, butt power is achieved...
Hahaha, pretty cheeky!

Consider yourself on the leading edge of supermagnet research with your butt-powered generator.

This breast-powered one is hot on your heels, though! HARNESSING THE UNTAPPED POWER OF BREAST MOTION.

Under the circumstances, I'm willing to concede first place in line, especially if you can make light at night to read by while we are waiting.
That and I could just eat people to get to the front... All I can think about right now is a strobe light powered by my butt with shake shake it like a polaroid picture in the background...
I explode with a shockwave at a certain frequency that causes all of the jackalopes around the world to go crazy and kill themselves.
Ah well my pandalope and such spawn will be fine, as for me, not a problem, bird tweeters make the same noise, so darwinism fixed that little issue...
Did you forget about the pandalopes weak spot? I sent mini non exploding missiles to hit all of your pandalopes right in between the horns, mwuhahahaha the world in now rid of you freaky mutant creatures.
Umm Remember last time someone did that, most of the pandalopes horns jsut had missiles stuck in them for a while...
Between the horns there is a very important blood vessel that if popped will kill them. Oh yea I forgot *reforms after explosion*
Umm yeah, there was, except now the horns are so close together that it's protected with a thick sheet of bone, remember all jackalope derivatives strive to be as good looking and invincible as me...
You are not very invincible all I have to do is put a little poison in your drink and you fall over. Humans are very delicate.
Umm you picked the wrong guy to poison... I have this unique constitution, mainly made of a platinum alloy... And before you think of violence I have been blown up on several occasions, been through more than one wall and hit by several trucks, unscathed... However I have no problem helping you, though if you felt like taking a few of the wee critters off my hands more power to ya...
hey,look there *walks innocently to front of the line,pushing RS,KK,KJ,n8man,mrfixits out of the way,takes all the books,drives away*
n8man Derin6 years ago
I exploded when you touched me. You are now a fried penguin.
Derin n8man6 years ago
Fortunately,Derinsleep has spare copies of himself ,he quickly changes to a spare copy,n8man has sacrificed itself for nothing,still in front of line,takes the books,gives a hundred bucks to ewilhelm,calls limo,drives away
n8man Derin6 years ago
Remember, once I explode I reform because I have awesome future tech.
Derin n8man6 years ago
puts n8man into fireproof box,throws box to blackhole,still in front of the line
n8man Derin6 years ago
I explode in the box desroying it and the shock wave throws you into the black hole.
Derin n8man6 years ago
grabs lamp pole,pulls self out of blackhole,uses portal closer to seal up blackhole,is still in front of line
n8man Derin6 years ago
I am in the front of the line and I will fry you penguin. *Grabs derinsleep, plucks feathers, sticks in deep frier and eats* Mmmmmmmmm. penguin.
Derin n8man6 years ago
u still forgot my spare copies*transforms into spare copy,puts smoke bomb in front of n8man,puts out fuse,pushes into trashcan,hes
n8man Derin6 years ago
The fuse on my head is just for looks and the real fuse is inside me. *Sticks fried penguin into copy's mouth. Copy goes insane because it realizes it has become a canniball and craves penguin meat and kills all of the copies and eats them. I use the copy machine to make a bomb army then I destroy the copy machine and kill your last copy. I am now in the front of the line.
Derin n8man6 years ago
like you,i can duplicate myself,I had spare spare copies!*turns into spare copy,throws saltpeter and sugar on n8man,pushes n8man into the porthole of doom,buys all of the books,takes stand and leaves*
n8man Derin6 years ago
If I destroyed all of your copies and I destroyed you then how can you copy yourself?
Derin n8man6 years ago
i have spare copies of my spare copies of course.And they are angry at you.
All 1,254,253,458,647,565,245 of them.
dombeef Derin6 years ago
lol!
and then i throw this magnet into the mix (strongest i can find on the internet.) and all of the clones are sucked into it and gone forever!
magnetfull42.jpg
did i mention that thats a giants hand beside a giant penny
Haha, that is one big magnet...good thing it was not a Canadian penny 'cause it would be imbedded in your hand now!
HA LOL!!
Canadian's. when will they learn?
they wont,however we turks do *sends H bomb at Iraq to end the life of pkk then throws shield at turkish soldiers before the explosion,loads soldiers into f16,throws completely armed soldiers at merseyless through the bomb hatch,DIE MERSEYLESS MUAHHAHAHAHAHAHA*
hmmm. your complete army of Turkish soldiers may be a bit crushed in one f16 *watches f16 crash at feet* sigh *pulls out 500kw laser (green)* now you die!
*unplugs laser and cuts cord right at the laser*
*brings laser hard over derinsleep's head sending shards of glass deep into head and upper torso causing massive blood loss whilst sending a deadly cloud of gases around dirinsleep's head causing him to go blind and start to suffocate!* did i win?
no,*dies,turns into spare copy and cuts off merseyless' head off,then cuts merseyless into a pile of dirt,adds glass shards and gasoline,puts mix into cement mixer and throws match*
hmm. first off how can you copy when you are dead? do the dead bits come back to life? either way... *through the flames carresing the cement mixers bowels a sudden flash of neon green followed by an explosion sending shards of metal through derinsleeps quantum oddity rebuilt clone body causing the weak shadow of derinsleeps former self to collapse. and through the flames and the wreckage appears merseyless YOU CANT DEFEAT ME, BWAHAHAHAH. oh my turn is up. dang your turn!*
wow,this has to be the largest reply section,lol
yes... yes it is
yea
And I'm farthest down and right on it Hoo-Yah!
no i am
hee hee!
