Cool Tools A Catalog of Possibilities by Kevin Kelly
This is really just a compendium of a variety of tools for various pursuits. Want the best pencil for drafting? It's in there. The best book on project management? In there. Hiking resources, science toys for kids, tents, homesteading resources, best place to find specialized screwdriver heads, 3D printing resources, coral growing, learning programming languages? Yes to all.
It's the kind of book where all you do with it is make a list of things to read/buy for various goals and projects. Then someday when you need to you revisit it and make another list of things to read/buy for new goals and projects it will probably be updated by then or at least still relatively relevant.
