    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.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed the this audio book but the narrator is killing me. It sounds like he puts quotes around every other major idea. If I were you I would buy the book on this one. I would usually never recommend this but in this case I would. I felt like I was being read to by a 3rd grader or being talked to like I was a third grader. The sentences didn't flow in any since of the word. I thought about recording myself reading this and sending it in just so people wouldn't hate this book. Sorry to rant so much about this but it really killed it for me. I have sat through some pretty bad reads but this takes the cake. Hopefully he was just directed poorly or something. Anyway, liked the book, hated the narrator. Hope this helps.
