This book is defining my life right now, at least from a studio perspective. No, actually, from every perspective. Thoughts on skilled hand work/craftsmanship and how it has impacted us psychologically, socially, physiologically and how the loss of learned skills and the age of information is building an intellectual and emotional debt we may not be able to repay. Totally fascinating! Science and philosophy, my faves in one place! And now, thanks to Tyger, I have my very own copy (inclusive of protective library style cover in case of coffee rings or inattentive guests)in which to write and underline! I suppose he had noticed my furious note-taking. I do prefer marginalia, as it happens. This will get read again, soon!
