Failing gracefully, by hand, and living a better life,
This review is from: Made by Hand: Searching for Meaning in a Throwaway World (Hardcover)
This book is approachable, fun, funny and gentle. Mark is a great writer, an inveterate tinkerer and one of the most important voices of the post-industrial age, but at the same time he's not afraid to tell you how often he screws up.
This book is also subversive, because his Tom Sawyer tales of handmade adventure will cajole you into abandoning some of your insulation and actually going out and making something.
I loved it. And now my PID outfitted espresso maker (I did it myself) is even better than it was.
