If you love rocks, youâ€™ll enjoy looking at the photographs of the dry stone (no mortar) structures the author builds. I especially enjoyed learning about the unique dry stone walls in Irelandâ€™s Aran Islands; the rocks were piled helter skelter at all angles with frequent open spaces without using any mortar and yet theyâ€™ve survived since the 18th century.
However, if, as the book cover promises, you're hoping for a bit more philosophy mixed in with the discussion of tools and techniques for handling rocks, then you will probably be disappointed. A better book for that is "The Work of Craft, An Inquiry into the Nature of Crafts and Craftsmanship" by Carla Needleman. She writes of being a potter but her reflections on work, the lessons of failure, the temptation to stay with the familiar, etc. are as applicable to writers and businesspeople as to artists of all kinds.
