Book Summary of Wrench

This is not a book for journalists. Civil servants, too, will feel uneasy while reading it, and as for lawyers, they will never sleep again. For it is about a man in his capacity as homo faber, a maker of things with his hands, and what has any of us ever made but words. I say it is 'about' the man who makes; truly, it is more a hymn of praise than a description, and not only because the toiler who is the hero of the book is a hero indeed - a figure, in his humanity, simplicity, worthy of inclusion in the catalogue of mythical giants alongside Hercules, Atlas, Gargantua and Orion. He is Faussone, a rigger' Bernard Levin, THE TIMES

David November 17, 2010 review from Goodreads

I was dubious when my father recommended The Monkey's Wrench - other recommendations had included China Miéville and Michael Chabon, neither of whom have managed to tell a story through which I was willing to suffer, and Primo Levi is best known for works relating to the holocaust, which also is...

Andrea November 01, 2010 review from Goodreads

Tatsächlich eine literarisch hochstehende Berschreibung der Arbeitswelt, wie es im Klappentext geschrieben steht, und nette geschichten von einem streckenweise lyrischen Ingenieur. Trotzdem nach ungefähr der Hälfte weggelegt und keine Lust bekommen, es wieder in die Hand zu nehmen.

Christopher July 15, 2012 review from Goodreads

Interesting read. I enjoyed the writing style much more than the content of the book.
