A manual of inspiration for the tinkerer or the person who obsesses about how things are put together. The author intersperses short essays on his experience as a designer/fixer/educator with his own photographs of various items that he has disassembled. Sometimes the essays seem disjointed in the context of the book because they are not tied directly to the subjects of the photographs. The book as a whole is a monument to creativity and industrial design, particularly when it comes to manufacturing of the old school.
