Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction ($14) was PopularMechanics.com selection for one of The Best DIY and Home Improvement Books of 2009. We have come an awful long way from the era of the peashooter and with so many modern household items and office supplies around it is so much easier to create your own mini arsenal. Clothespins, toothpicks, rubber bands, binder clips, ballpoint pens, paper clips, plastic bits and pieces and, of course, matches and barbecue lighters, they are all in here and you have to see what you can make from them to believe it. The toy designer John Austin takes us through easy to follow step-by-step instructions for every project with materials, diagrams, ammo lists and construction tips. Boy this book is fun!
