The Art of Fixing Things

Jul 23, 2015

Once in awhile, a great book comes along that we feel should have been required reading in grade school. The Art of Fixing Things, Principles of Machines and How to Repair Them is one of those types of books, filled with important information that encourages young minds to fix what they’ve broken instead of throwing it away.

It’s undeniable that we live in a society where the majority of people would rather throw something away and get a new one rather than fix what they already have. The mindset is probably due to the fact that the majority of youngsters don’t know how to use basic tools. The Art of Fixing Things teaches the basics of tool use, maintenance and repairs for a variety of common household items and cars. The guide will help you save money and feel confident about fixing something you probably wouldn’t otherwise know how to fix. It’s written by a third-generation handy man, who one day decided to write a book about fixing things when he realized young people just simply didn’t know how to use basic tools to fix basic things.
