Summary, etc.:
"The host of PBS's A Craftsman's Legacy makes the case that the craftsman's way--the philosophy, the skills, and the mindset--can provide a blueprint for all of us in our increasingly hurried, disposable world. In this book he tells the stories and shares the collective wisdom of these modern-day makers while also celebrating the culture of all craftsmen"-- Provided by publisher.
