About this book
A philosophically-minded enquiry into the nature of practical activity, asking why people try to do a good job and have pride in what they do.
Most of us have to work. But is work just a means to an end? In trying to make a living, have we lost touch with the idea of making things well? This book offers an exploration of craftsmanship - the desire to do a job well for its own sake - as a template for living.
