More Shop Class as Soulcraft, on Motorcycle Repair Versus Modernity

More on Matt Crawford’s bestseller Shop Class as Soulcraft, with photos.

Crawford:

"There’s this false dichotomy out there between intellectual work and manual work," he’s saying. "The popular image of the plumber is just the butt crack, not that of a skilled tradesman who sets his own hours, figures out complex problems on the fly and probably earns more than most of his clients. Plus, there’s that satisfaction of imposing one’s will and intellect on the physical world, to immediate effect."
