the redundancy of this book

the way i see it, the instructables that will make it into the book will be the all time favorite ones, the ones that i have already seen, i believe the people at instructables should go out and find some original instructables to put in the book not the old ones that everyone has seen. I mean i would like to buy this book, but what would be the point if i have already seen the instructables online? that is where the redundancy lies

It is already for sale in the UK!


The US site only has has pre-order


It's not on Play.com, or tesco.com - maybe repeated searches will trigger them to stock it.

I hope the amazon image isnt the front cover :S it really really needs to be orange and feature the robot
Umm... The point is to build instructables identity throughout the world, rather than the web with a book, at least that's the way I see it, by extending out with a book you bring people to new parts of the web, since the majority of the population still stay confined to a handful of major sites...
There are an awful lot of really good Makers who don't use this site. Some of them don't use the internet! However, if they see The Book on the shelves at their local hobby store, where they buy their parts and plans, then they will be exposed to our work, and maybe join in. Wen it is published, I am going to recommend to my local hobby store that they stock the book.
i couldn't help your use of "The Book" with the capitals, thats what it sould be called, "The Book"
I think they'll probably want the word Instructables in the title somewhere as well...
I was speaking to eric about UK publishing, though O' Reilly media do publish here it's not certain that it will be published throughout the UK, with some luck it will... it would be nice to see it in some hobby stores and things... It would be even more interesting to see it in both Waterstone's and B&Q, but that may be pushing it...
Waterstone's, yes... but B&Q... =\
Was more a joke... However for the right supplies B&Q is a great resource...
heh. :D
I don't actually think I've seen any books in B&Q, if I have it was probably Garden Furniture or something. I think Focus are more likely to have books. =P
