    Shop Class as Soulcraft brings alive an experience that was once quite common but now seems to be receding from society - the experience of making and fixing things with our hands. For those who felt hustled off to college, then to the cubicle, against their own inclinations and natural bents, Shop Class as Soulcraft seeks to restore the honor of the manual trades as a life worth choosing.

    Nathaniel says: "A profound look at work, and what we've done to it"
    "Great Book"

    What did you love best about Shop Class as Soulcraft?

    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.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "My Favorite Book"

    What made the experience of listening to The Art of Racing in the Rain the most enjoyable?

    This book is simply incredible. I read this book a couple of years ago & I ordered it when I opened my Audible account. I enjoyed listening to it more than I did reading it, which surprised me. This is simply one great book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Racing in the Rain?

    The ending.


    What about Christopher Evan Welch’s performance did you like?

    The entire performance was spectacular.
