It got to the point at which my buddy Frank didn't want to ride shotgun on a pizza run with me because of my habit of asking people about their jobs. There's so much I need to know about the process of throwing a doughball up in the air, dousing it with sauce and cheese and sliding it into the oven. It just fascinates me, to hear about how things work from place to place. And to hear a skilled worker speak in almost loving terms of his/her job is so fulfilling! It's pride in action, when you hear a pizza maker or paramedic or plumber talk about work experiences.
It's just a fascinating book and I'd recommend it to anyone. You can probably find it your local library, but before you go home, why not ask the librarian about how it feels to work there?
