The  Official MacGyver Survival Manual

155 Ways to Save the Day

Written By: Scott Erwert, Ian Cannon, Rhett Allain, Peter M Lenkov, Lucas Till
For over 30 years, the name MacGyver has been synonymous with astonishing feats, from fixing a car with water and egg whites to busting out of jail using a hairpin and a pair of repurposed handcuffs to saving the world with a simple paperclip.

The Mac Hacks in CBS’s hit show have been tested and fact-checked by experts, and really can work. The first official how-to guide to the MacGyver universe, this book is packed with drawings and descriptions of the hacks that made Mac the world’s most resourceful secret agent.

Each section is introduced by Dr. Rhett Alain, the show’s resident physicist, who ensures the science is based in reality. Full-color photos depict Angus MacGyver in his element, and annotated illustrations show how it was done. Grab a paper clip, a pen knife, and some duct tape, and prepare to save the day!
