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.

The perfect supplement to the Reassembler show.

What more can I say. If you love the BBC show and James May's presentation style as I do. You'd be mesmerized by this audiobook.

So much more than just reassembling parts...

I genuinely have no idea why i bought this book other than the positive reviews it had. I cant place why i enjoyed it so much either, but i laughed and enjoyed it's quirkiness throughout then it ended in just a short few hours feeling ive gained some sort of insight into the past and furure and all i can say is" when is the next book coming out?" If you like to tinker or just know odd ball facts this book will be great.
