Think Martha Stewart meets MacGyver. With simple step-by-step instructions for more than 25 amazing crafts, Dad’s Book of Awesome Projects is chock full of projects you can do together — not just things you assemble while the kids sit idle on the sidelines. Mike Adamick is a stay-at-home dad, writer, and inveterate tinkerer whose work regularly appears on National Public Radio, KQED Radio and in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, McSweeney’s and Jezebel.com. Mike lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter. In his spare time, he enjoys sewing children’s clothing, making cool crafts out of junk from around the house, and practicing for cage fights. He is also deathly afraid of sharks, open water and momentary deficits of oxygen, and competes in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.
