The Case for Work


My friend Matthew Crawford, whose wonderful new book Shop Class as Soulcraft (which originated in a no less wonderful essay in The New Atlantis) has been discussed around here in recent weeks, took his case for the manual trades to The Colbert Report last night and the results are well worth watching.

He will also be speaking about his book at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington on Monday evening. More details here.
