I heard this guy on the Sunday Edition the other week. As you’d expect from the Unstoppable Fighting Technician, he was Saharan-level dry. I’m not sure what to make of this new career move but there’s no denying that poster/plaque/shadow box combo is worth the price of admission.
But to get to the merits of the book specifically, it can best be summed up as a singularly mind-blowing experience. David Rees has done the unthinkable; he has written a book about pencil sharpening that the casual reader will not want to throw through the window in a fit of righteous indignation. He has taken the insurmountable world of pencil pointing and made it something relatable, cuddly, even hopeful. You will literally find yourself reading a book about pencil sharpening and it will not feel like a mistake.
