Shop class zen

A meditation on manual competence.

I don’t normally go into the ‘self explorations’ section of the bookstore (that may be a lie) but Shop Class as Soulcraft was one of the best books I read this year. I think it’s particularly grounding to those of us in industries that deal with great shifts and change. Well written, deeply engaging…think of it as a less sophomoric Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

This week’s Frandoms are by Mike Kasprow at Trapeze.
