Book Description

April 3 2012


Welcome, intrepid temporal explorers, to the world's first and only field manual/survival guide to time travel!
DON'T LEAVE THIS TIME PERIOD WITHOUT IT!

Humans from H. G. Wells to Albert Einstein to Bill & Ted have been fascinated by time travel-some say drawn to it like moths to a flame. But in order to travel safely and effectively, newbie travelers need to know the dos and don'ts. Think of this handy little book as the only thing standing between you and an unimaginably horrible death-or being trapped forever in another time or alternate reality. You get:

Essential time travel knowledge:

  • Choosing the right time machine, from DeLoreans to hot tubs to phone booths-and beyond
  • What to say-and what NOT to say-to your doppelganger
  • Understanding black holes and Stephen Hawking's term "spaghettification" (no, it's not a method of food preperation; yes, it is a horrifically painful way to meet your end)
  • The connection between Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, traversing wormholes and the 88 mph speed requirement
  • The possible consequences of creating a time paradox-including, but not limited to, the implosion of the universe

    Survival tips for nearly any sticky time travel situation:

  • How to befriend a dinosaur and subsequently fight other dinosaurs with that dinosaur
  • Instructions to build your very own Rube Goldberg Time Machine
  • Crusading-for fun and profit
  • Tips on battling cowboys, pirates, ninjas, samurai, Nazis, Vikings, robots and space marines
  • How to operate a microwave oven
  • Enjoying the servitude of robots and tips for living underground when they inevitably rise up against us

Review

"A great pair of earrings - especially unique, handmade earrings - can put the perfect finishing touch on any ensemble. In Nathalie Mornu's A Bounty of Bead + Wire Earrings, 25 talented artists come together to share 50 inspired earring designs that you can recreate in your own studio. The book begins with an informative overview of the basics - including descriptions of the necessary tools and materials, an instructional section showcasing wireworking techniques, and a glossary of essential terms - and then jumps right in to the projects. The original designs featured in A Bounty of Bead + Wire Earrings run the gamut from classic styles for everyday wear to eye-catching statement pieces for special occasions, all infused with globally-inspired flair. With detailed, close-up photographs and clear diagrams, jewelry artists of all levels will be able to master even the most complex-looking earring projects with ease. If you've been seeking new inspiration for ways to use your stash of beads and wire, then A Bounty of Bead + Wire Earrings by Nathalie Mornu is one title that you must check out." - CRESCENDOh blog
 
"There is a huge assortment of designs in here, and because there were 25 different designers who created them, you get a wonderful range of styles. There is really something here for everyone, from traditional to trendy. ... This is a project driven book, and with 50 projects there is really something for everyone's tastes and personal style. There is also a range as far as difficulty. However, even the very new jewelry maker will be able to find plenty of projects to select from. Some personal favorites of mine include 'Harmony' designed by Valerie MacCarthy, 'Florentine Lace' by Cynthia Deis, and 'Pearl Bouquet' by Lisa M. Call." - About.com Jewelry Making
 
"With some baubles and some wire, the possibilities are quite endless. A Bounty of Bead & Wire Earrings: 50 Fun, Fast Jewelry Projects is an excellent guide for those who have embraced do-it-yourself jewelry. Each of the 50 designs are explained step by step with full color photographs, presenting the fundamentals of the crafting to create unique and colorful ideas. Of use for even experienced do-it-yourselfers for inspiration, A Bounty of Bead & Wire Earrings is an excellent pick, not to be overlooked." - Bookwatch

Since you've probably already read this hilarious and entertaining guide to time traveling in the future and determined its usefulness, I don't really have to say much in this review except this: trust your future self. You enjoy this book later on, so why not beat yourself to the punch and read it now? You'll save your future self some work, and you'll have that many more years of enjoying its funny pop culture references and actual science-y stuff ahead of you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical April 11 2012
By Jennie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is hysterical and surprisingly useful for time travel. I can't tell you how many times I've heeded their advice to "run, run very fast" while traipsing through the time space continuum. Many thanks to the authors for helping me to survive!!

By New reader - Published on Amazon.com

The title So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveler's Guide to Time Travel is an interesting and fun to read. It is also education because it discusses of physics and pop culture.
How would you otherwise learn how to create a battery out of dinosaur poop ... or similar issues! LOL!
This title gives you fun and helpful information how to survive during different times and the illustrations are also great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Outstanding June 2 2012
By Kenneth Singleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a humorous, contrarian, helpful, ambiguous, insightful, cautionary, and celebratory tale of travel through time.

The theory section of the book respectfully pulls from the [ahem] factual canon previously established in Back to the Future and Hot Tub Machine with just enough real-life "It's-shake-and-bake-and-I-helped" physics to make your head swim.

The wit is dry and the roaring fire off the destroyed remnants of the time machines of the hostile time travelers who lost their associated time battles is inviting.

Whether you advocate the riding of dinosaurs as does the book or the punching of dinosaurs as do other time travelling enthusiasts, you will find appropriate advice within its pages.

Bought the Kindle edition, because there's really no other way to read a book of the future that is also a book of the present and the past.

Thoroughly enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good and useful information! However,... April 16 2012
By Stuffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
...where was this book when I really needed it back in 1397? I must warn those who don't think "RTFM" applies to them. You better read the WHOLE thing or you may miss that one important part about..... You'll know it when you read it. Can't wait for the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously useful. Don't travel through time without it. April 16 2012
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is awesome. So much useful information for the time traveler wannabe. If you want to avoid being eaten by dinosaurs and/or mate with hot futuristic extraterrestrials, make sure you read this book first. It's a lifesaver.
