    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"
    "Finally, a trades persons view of work."
    Overall

    They all don't need to go to college.
    Crawford demonstrates the cognation necessary to be a skilled trades/craft person, and the utter enjoyment in doing a trade well.
    Although, the diction used in his writings reminds me of my senior year philosophy professor, the book is enjoyable.

    How likely is your mechanic, electrician, plumber, or landscaper going to be outsourced overseas? How likely is your job going overseas, are you sure? Ask a radiologist.

    Listen to the book. Especially if you are a cubicle dweller, then you will see why we (tradespersons) get dirty and abuse our bodies for a living. And don't let the blue collar fool you, we have brains.

    Thanks for the nice work Crawford.
