It's back -- with more tape and more projects: 18 projects using the do-it-yourselfer's not-so-secret weapon.

NASA has a written policy that requires every space shuttle mission to carry at least one roll of "the gray tape." Duct tape now comes in designer colors, and for the color-shy there's a transparent version. The once-humble tape has hit the big time, and now there are duct-tape clubs, competitions and websites. In the words of Red Green, head possum on the PBS-syndicated The Red Green Show, "Spare the duct tape, spoil the job."

In this instructive, entertaining and downright funny how-to book, Joe Wilson shows how to rip, cut and fold ordinary duct tape to make 18 amazing projects, including:

Wallet Barbecue apron Lunchbox Tool belt Cell phone holder Baseball cap TV chair caddy Raingear for pets Toilet roll cover Halloween masks.

Ductigami is more fun than a crossword puzzle, more useful than a welder's certificate, and more durable than a rechargeable battery. With duct tape it's easy to create a remarkable personal gift for any occasion.

This book is horrible for any age. It's full of errors, bad instructions, and mis-measurements. If you feel your life needs some turmoil and frustration, this is the book for you!
