though this book is not for everyone due to the philosophical language and heady way of Storytelling, drawing comparisons to motorcycle mechanics allows a complex story to be easily digested by anyone. this book completely describes today's corporate job rat race, where that model came from, and a potential path away from it. I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who has a hard time describing exactly what their job function is.
someone who likes to know in minute details of what screw another mechanic turned 20 years ago and if this mechanic succeeded in repairing a motorcycle or a porsche
about 1/2h of layman's philosophy like you would get from a drunk person in a workingman's pup.
A must for anyone who works for a living. A great thought book about what success means.
Listen again and again to get even more from this gem.
A book everyone should read by a great author and mechanic. Wish he would take the time to narrate this title himself as it would improve this program exponentially. Having heard M. Crawford speak several times, this recording could use his voice.
I love audible books. I can paint, run errands and clean my house while listening to a book. The best.
Maybe people who really enjoy cars and engines. The car lingo just lost me a lot of the time.
Maybe not so technical, but that is his passion so I can appreciate that. It was like he was speaking another language. Car language and vocabulary words I wasn't sure about. I thought I had a well rounded vocabulary but apparently not.
I'm not sure. He seemed kind of dry but that may be the writing.
Disappointment and frustration. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't .
I think if you like cars and tinkering with mechanical stuff you may like it, but his descriptions seemed kind of high brow and unaccessible.

I was pretty excited about this title but was very disappointed with the book. Was a lot of words that didn't seem to flow, and never really seemed to get anywhere. I was hoping it would be good for my kids to listen to to learn to value of learning both a trade and get a education, but could hardly listen to it myself so never gave it to the kiddos.
It was very insightful & in parts, very funny. As a Master Electrician, I could never articulate why I love working with my hands and with my head, but this book put it all together for me.
I will be listening to this title again so I can soak it in.
I would recommend this to anyone who takes pride in what they do, and strives to improve the way they accomplish it. Job satisfaction must be intrinsic.
Very affirming of people who choose to follow their own drummer. Creative and inspiring it made me even more aware of the importance of being true to oneself.
