Abstract:

[This book] illuminate[s] reassessment of American labor. Testimonials to physical work have always celebrated the dignity, the economic and moral value, even the nobility of blue-collar labor, but rarely the thought required to get the job done right. The lightning-fast organization and mental calculations of the waitress; the complex spatial mathematics of the carpenter; the aesthetic and intellectual dexterity of the hair stylist--our failure to acknowledge or respect these qualities has undermined a large portion of America's working population.-Dust jacket.
