Description:


In an age of perpetual distraction, how do we focus on what matters most?

In the modern age something is always seeking to occupy our attention. Many of us rarely have a moment to ourselves, let alone to be ourselves, leaving us feeling disconnected and out of touch. In this entertaining follow-up to his bestselling The Case for Working With Your Hands, Matthew Crawford argues that by reconnecting with the people, places and things around us, we create meaningful relationships that make us happier and allow us to flourish.

Drawing on moral philosophy, cognitive science, the work lessons of craftsmen and his own life lessons as an academic and mechanic, he shows how each of us can learn to live in the world around us.
