Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2005. OHP transparencies. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 190 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Featuring a new preface for the 10th anniversary As did the national bestseller Nickel and Dimed, Mike Rose s revelatory book demolishes the long-held notion that people who work with their hands make up a less intelligent class. He shows us waitresses making lightning-fast calculations, carpenters handling complex spatial mathematics, and hairdressers, plumbers, and electricians with their aesthetic and diagnostic acumen. Rose, an educator who is himself the son of a waitress, explores the intellectual repertory of everyday workers and the terrible social cost of undervaluing the work they do. Deftly combining research, interviews, and personal history, this is one of those rare books that has the capacity both to shape public policy and to illuminate general readers.
