Do not let this man raise chickens!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Made by Hand: My Adventures in the World of Do-It-Yourself (Paperback)
The book is full of humorous observations and anecdotes about failed endeavors. In a nutshell, it advises that you should not fear failure when you try new things. I enjoyed most of the book.
The author did devote entirely too much time to whining about his doomed chicken raising experience. (Short version: chicken munching critters 100% kill rate; chickens 0% survivors.)
If you are looking for a book about cheerleading for cigar box musical instruments and hacking espresso machines, look no farther. If however, you seek something that covers setting your pants on fire while welding, it is best to move along...nothing to see here.
