#booksweRreading Tuesday 10/11/2016

shopcraft2bas2bsoulcraft2bcoverWhile writing a pitch for a fantastic memoir we are getting ready to submit to some lucky editors (It’s about a very special vintage British motorcycle!) we were lucky enough to rediscover Matthew Crawford’s inimitable Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work.

Crawford’s philosophies still ring true and reading this book felt a bit hypocritical after spending long days in an office, especially the chapter titled “The Contradictions of the Cubicle.” But it was a good reminder of what lies beyond the halogen lamps and the power we all might possess in the strength of our hands.
