Publisher's Summary

From the humble garden lawnmower to the ear-splitting electric guitar, James May returns with a typically wacky account of what makes these great machines work, one piece at a time.
Reassembly is merely a form of therapy, something that stimulates a part of my brain that is left wanting in my daily life. When I rebuild a bicycle, I reorder my head. So might you....
I'm delighted that you will be listening to an audiobook about putting things back together. It's a subject that fascinates me but which I assumed was a lonely passion that I would take to the grave, unconsummated by the normal channels of human interaction. Welcome! You and I, we are not alone, and our screwdrivers are our flashing Excaliburs as we sally forth to make small parts of the fragmented world whole again.

Excellent performance and writing by James May

Great book concerning reassembly and assembly. I enjoyed learning the background behind some objects that I've seen but never thought about - I will treat my tools better after this.
