Questioning Work

The current most-emailed article from the NYT is “The Case for Working With Your Hands,” by Matthew B. Good, an essay in the NYT Magazine, which is adapted from the author’s book, Shop Class as Soulcraft. The book, which has been rising on Amazon, as we noted last week, jumped from #73 to #32 as a result.

It is also featured in the June 1 issue of Newsweek, along with Alain de Botton’s The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work.
