Larry Weingarten's The Philosopher's Wrench brilliantly takes a philosophical approach to fixing things: from home water heaters to personal relationships. Weingarten speaks to the heart and soul of living wisely and lightly on the planet. He is an expert on hot water heaters, energy efficient homes, and living off the grid. But his writings on living well go much deeper than the mere proper maintenance of a home's technology. The process of fixing physical things is remarkably similar to the process of fixing emotional and spiritual issues. Enlisting the powers of openness, perspective, and a quiet mind can go far in helping you fix any sort of problem that crosses your path or that you may have been burdened with. This understanding and the confidence these powers bring is truly life-changing Imagine a life with no real fears; imagine the calmness you would feel.
