1.   Clark, Stephen
Toolies, or Fun, Wealth, & Artsy-Crafties: What They Are and How to Avoid Them
 
Publisher: Norfolk, VA: The Donning Company, 1987.
Trade Paperback. 23 X 15 cm. VG/No dj. "The Official Handbook of Engineers and Applied Scientists." Pictorial covers, white titles on blue spine, [viii], 127 pp. Slight shelf wear, gift inscription on half-title, 2 cm water mark to fore-edge. A tongue-in-cheek recitation of stereotypes of born engineers, many of which nevertheless ring true: "..suppose a toolie and an artsy-craftsy each say that they have 'a ton' of homework to turn in on Monday.. What the toolie is saying is, 1) this looks like an unusually light weekend and, 2) that if he uses a one-half ton pickup truck to carry all his homework in on Monday, the truck will probably structurally fail. What the artsy-craftsy is saying is that he's gonna be a little late for the Friday night party." Contents: who are the real toolies?; arts & crafts; the toolie paradox: disciplined inventiveness; tool schools--the toolie top thirty; the toolie aptitude; real world paradox; toolie fields; excitement--living without it; tool rules; the metric system--who cares?; endangered species; they said it couldn't be done. Shipping weight 1 lb.
