The rambunctious nature of the craftsman, as well as his skill, come into fine focus in this autobiographical how-to (and how not to) story. Living offshore on resort islands for years, the author sketches the contractor-client relationship, for once, from the workman's viewpoint. While erecting houses that will stand for decades, an inner war commences with alcohol and a nagging restlessness. In the end emerges a changed man, seeing at last the world as it is, while offering the inside dope on building and remodeling. A (sometimes hilarious) book for builders and homeowners alike, for anyone who's swung a hammer, and a smooth read for those who haven't.
