A philosopher/mechanic's wise (and sometimes funny) look at the challenges and pleasures of working with one's hands.

Shop Class as Soulcraft became an instant best-seller, attracting readers with its radical (and timely) reappraisal of the merits of skilled manual labor. On both economic and psychological grounds, author Matthew B. Crawford questions the educational imperative of turning everyone into a "knowledge worker," based on a misguided separation of thinking from doing. Using his own experience as an electrician and mechanic, Crawford presents a wonderfully articulated call for self-reliance and a moving reflection on how we can live concretely in an ever-more abstract world.
