Recomendo, New Book from the Cool Tool Folks

First, Cool Tools is the most consistently useful destination for me on the web. I can’t count the amount of good tips, tools, savvy I’ve found there. It’s the electronic Whole Earth Catalog, using the same formula of non-commercial reviews by people of like interests.

Now, Kevin Kelly, Mark Frauenfelder, and Claudia Dawson have come up with a dandy little book of cool stuff. You can’t browse on a computer like you can with a real book. I started thumbing through it one night, serendipitously, and found that the small size was easy to deal with, and pretty soon an hour had passed. Fun!

Secondly, full disclosure: I’ve been a Cool Tools contributor (and fan) for years. So I’m not unbiased. But I believe in peer reviews, such as was started in the late ’60s by the WEC. It’s so refreshing to get non-commercial information from this tribe of tool users.

The book has 560 recommendations, and is 10 bucks, print-on-demand from Amazon here.
