Today I finished Schwarz’s “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest.” This is my newest favoritest awesomist book. Really. I’ve started and read parts of lots and lots of non-fiction books. And I think it’s safe to say I’ve never read cover to cover one this long (475 pages). But I gobbled up every word of this book, from the prologue to the afterward. There was never any danger of losing patience or focus like what usually happens with me and a non-fiction book of any length.
The parts where Christopher explains American anarchism spoke to me. But I’m still confused about that. And the internet is so full of the violent chaotic form of anarchism that it’s little help.
But woodworking and it’s tools, and how I intend to go about it is much clearer now having read this. I would love to start at the beginning and read this again. Seriously. I’m sure I will some day. But for now I will get back to it and put into practice some of the things I’ve been reading about for the last two-and-a-half weeks.
