Cody Wilson, a self-described crypto-anarchist and rogue thinker, combines the controversial yet thrilling story of the production of the first ever 3-D printable gun with a startling philosophical manifesto that gets to the heart of the 21st-century debate over the freedom of information and ideas.
Reminiscent of the classic Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman, Cody Wilson has written a unique, critical, and philosophical guide through the digital revolution. Deflecting interference from the State Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the story of Defense Distributed - where Wilson's employees work against all odds to defend liberty and the right to access arms through the production of 3-D printed firearms - takes us across continents, into dusty warehouses and high-rise condominiums, through television studios, to the Texas desert, and beyond.
Harkening to both Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and The Anarchist Cookbook, Come and Take It follows a group of digital radicals as they navigate political subterfuge to create a technological miracle against all odds. Combining elements of a modern-day thriller with a fascinating philosophical treatise, Wilson paints a scathing and timely portrait of an ideologically polarized America and his own struggle in the fight for liberty.

How many times can he describe the heat and the weather, when I want to hear about the politics & revolution of 3D gun printing? I've seen him in interviews- were it not for that I'd deduce from the book, that he's a pretentious little....
