Cool Tools is a highly curated selection of the best tools available for individuals and small groups. Tools include
hand tools, maps, how-to books, vehicles, software, specialized devices, gizmos, websites -- and anything useful. Tools
are selected and presented in the book if they are the best of kind, the cheapest, or the only thing available that will
do the job. This is an oversized book which reviews over 1,500 different tools, explaining why each one is great, and
what its benefits are. Indirectly the book illuminates the possibilities contained in such tools and the whole catalog
serves an education outside the classroom. The content in this book was derived from ten years of user reviews published
at the Cool Tools website, cool-tools.org.
