    Story
    (414)

    Dave Robicheaux had begun to put the pieces of his broken life together again when an old friend turned up on his doorstep, dredging up old memories and new threats.

    Geoff says: "Fantastic"
    "One of the best American writers"
    Overall

    James Lee Burke has an uncanny way of making you see the scenes he describes in poetic depth. He understands the complexity of human character and has a loving way of seeing all humans through the eyes of compassion. He is not a stranger to human suffering, vengefulness, hatred, passion or greed. The reader is to be commended on his touching reading, especially when he refers to Alifair as "little guy".

  • Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Matthew B. Crawford
    • Narrated By Max Bloomquist
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Story

    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"
    "Brilliant insight"
    Overall

    Matthew Crawford has made us aware that some of the most important experiences in life are "hands on" experiences that help us to learn how things work. We deprive ourselves and our children when we eliminate this step by using only the latest technology. We may easily succumb to the expedience of technique and thereby miss life.
