Phil Katz's book is steeped in experience and knowlege of a broad range of historical and contemporary manufacturing processes. This book presents an excellent analysis of the development of the industrial revolution in Britain and the ideas of one of its greatest critics - William Morris.
Whilst scathing of the waste of human potential in the past and the present, Katz concludes that our future working lives - and hence the quality of our whole lives - can be changed significantly and for the better.
