The Case for Working with Your Hands, Or, Why Office Work Is Bad for Us and Fixing Things Feels Good

The Case for Working with Your Hands, Or, Why Office Work Is Bad for Us and Fixing Things Feels Good - Matthew B. Crawford While he values physical hand's on work more than computer based work, the answer surely is that people can only find value in themselves if they see value in their work. That many people's work has become depersonalised and there is an emphasis on interchangeability of working units.
