Product Description & Reviews

155 field-tested hacks, tips, and on-the-fly solutions for the next time you're captured by Russian spies.For over 30 years, the name MacGyver has been synonymous with astonishing feats of ingenuity, from fixing a car with nothing but water and egg whites to busting out of jail using a hairpin and a pair of repurposed handcuffs to, of course, saving the world with his favorite weapon, a simple paperclip. What you might not know is that every trick that the resourceful secret agent pulls off on CBS’s hit show has been tested and fact-checked by experts, and really works . . . most of the time. No one is saying that you should craft a DIY airplane out of trash bags and a lawnmower engine. But with this book, you could. The first official how-to guide to the MacGyver universe, this book is packed with how-to drawings and step-by-step descriptions of the hacks that made this character the world’s most resourceful secret agent. Based on the hit new series, with shout-outs to the classic show that started it all. Each section introduced by Dr. Rhett Alain, the show’s resident physicist, who helps ensure the show’s science is based in . . . something resembling reality. Full-color photos illustrate Angus MacGyver in his element (which is to say, danger!), and illustrated how-to drawings show exactly how it was done. The best hacks to try at home for yourself are highlighted (as well the ones you really, really should never do without a team of physicists and a first aid kit handy). So grab a paper clip, a pen knife, and some duct tape and prepare to save the day! Contents include:  Breaking In + Out: Dozens of hacks for when you’re in a tight spot—or want to get closer to one, including: Break Out of Handcuffs Using a Hairpin Using a Toothbrush to Pick a Lock Detect an Intruder Make a Battering Ram Cut Through Steel Escape from Zip Ties or Duct Tape Use Vacuums to Scale a Wall, Spidey-Style Tools + Technology: Making the most of what you’ve got on hand, in the most unexpected of ways, including: Make a Stove from a Soup Can Tie Essential Knots Light a Fire with a Battery The Science of Stun Guns Build a Drone Fake a Crime Scene Make Buckets of Fake Blood Could I Do That? Rig a Spy Microphone Lift a Fingerprint Traps + Getaways: Lure the bad guys in, then get out of Dodge!  Catch Bad Guy in a Net Tie Them Up with a Tarp Stop a Car with a Piece of Paper Boobytrap a Manhole Burn Your Bridges Steal a Car Set a Tripwire Fly Away with Balloons Fake a Parachute Repairs + Rescues: When the chips are down and the stakes are big, it’s time for the really wild stuff, including: Make a Flour Bomb Patch a Gun Shot Wound with a Credit Card Put Out Fire with Sound Waves Transport Explosives Safely Make a Generator from Your Mope
