Publisher's Summary

YOU can create the next breakthrough innovation
A revolution is under way. But it's not about tearing down the old guard. It's about building, it's about creating, it's about breathing life into groundbreaking new ideas. It's called the Maker Movement, and it's changing the world.
Mark Hatch has been at the forefront of the Maker Movement since it began. A cofounder of TechShop - the first, largest, and most popular makerspace - Hatch has seen it all. Average people pay a small fee for access to advanced tools - everything from laser cutters and milling machines to 3D printers and AutoCAD software. All they have to bring is their creativity and some positive energy. Prototypes of new products that would have cost $100,000 in the past have been made in his shop for $1,000.
The Maker Movement is where all the next great inventions and innovations are happening - and you can play a part in it.
The Maker Movement Manifesto takes you deep into the movement. Hatch describes the remarkable technologies and tools now accessible to you and shares stories of how ordinary people have devised extraordinary products, giving rise to successful new business ventures. He explains how economic upheavals are paving the way for individuals to create, innovate, make a fortune - and even drive positive societal change - with nothing more than their own creativity and some hard work.
It's all occurring right now, all around the world - and possibly in your own neighborhood.
The creative spirit lives inside every human being. We are all makers. Whether you're a banker, lawyer, teacher, tradesman, or politician, you can play an important role in the Maker society.

A competently read advert.

What would have made The Maker Movement Manifesto better?

If there was less advertising for the company of the author I think I would have enjoyed it, but as it stands the writing was repetitive and pointless.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

This audiobook is one I had been looking forward to for some time, in fact its what made me go to a membership with audible but it is too hard to listen to and I am very disappointed.
