Summary
  • Presents a discussion of the value of working with one's hands in order to connect intellect with the material world, and examines the divide between thinking and doing that began with the assembly line and can be bridged through self-reliance and concrete living
  • In this wise and often funny book, a philosopher/mechanic systematically destroys the pretensions of the high-prestige workplace and makes an irresistible case for working with one's hands
Summary
A philosopher and mechanic extolls the virtues of manual labor, describing how the satisfactions and challenges of creating with one's own hands promotes a sense of connection to life that office work suppresses
