Embracing the Way of the Craftsman (AKA How to Make Cool Stuff)

I’ve updated the cover to my book on craftsmanship and tidied up a couple of typos.

Thank you for those who read the first version and offered feedback.

If you’re not sure what it’s about, here’s a quick outline of some of the content:

  • The five reasons why you should become a maker.
  • How craft and craftsmanship allow you to connect your head and your hands.
  • Why it’s not enough to understand something intellectually.
  • How to choose to be a Maker rather than a beast of burden condemned to the drudgery of routine and the optimisation of efficiency.
  • The not so secret recipe for getting started.
  • What ancient poets have in common with modern Linux coders.
