A flurry of new 3D Printing titles on Amazon - chrisww - 02-24-2013

Suddenly there seems to be a bunch of new 3D printing related books launched on Amazon just recently.

My own contribution is doing quite well.
3D Printing: The Next Technology Gold Rush - Future Factories and How to Capitalize on Distributed Manufacturing

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B1UKZC6

Would anybody care to offer any feedback on any of the other new releases such as Hod Lipson's book, Peter Keen's work or maybe Ann Marie Shillito's offering?

Once I have recouped some of my own expenses, I would like to read the other new releases, but most of them are quite a bit more expensive than my own, so I would like to get some other members opinions on which ones are worth buying first.

Hi Chris,

yes, there's a flood of AM-titles recently Tongue

Actually in German only: http://www.amazon.com/Macher-dritten-industriellen-Revolution-ebook/dp/B00B9M6BAQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1362409350&sr=1-2&keywords=petra+fastermann

Somehow I ended up studying Chinese rather than German, so I will have to rely on you advice here.Wink
How does it compare to Chis Anderson's Makers book?

At the moment I am just starting Fabricated.

Have you read this one yet?

Hi Chris,

... she's referring to his book, but has a personal view and slightly different and more actual experiences, so of some interest too Wink

... not yet - I'm personally involved in RP and AM-fabrication since maybe +20 years (RepRap since 2006), so following this trends more 'live' ... only occasionally cross-checking others views per lectures ...

Definitely NOT this one: http://www.amazon.com/Additive-Manufacturing-Printing-Coming-ebook/dp/B008NF34XO/ref=pd_sim_kstore_2 (comes up as an Amazon suggestion under your book) which is twice the cost and pretty much only contains links to Web sites (a whopping 68 pages of them). I would say this is typical of Amazon's ebooks lately. There are authors selling ebooks there that have managed to publish 10,000+ titles they've supposedly written. Eat that, J.K. Rowling!

Anyway, we need to be extra super very careful with ordering any electronic book on a hot recent (I mean, recent general media coverage after Mr. President mentioned it in the SoTU Address this year) topic such as 3D printing from Amazon!
