Collins remarked; “People of all ages from all over the world seem to resonate strongly with the theme of doing something measurable by making a masterpiece of their lives. 'Making a Masterpiece of Your Life' was originally created in the early 1990's by our family. We were inspired by the practice of craftsmanship as a guiding principle recognized by every culture in the world that anyone can apply to excel in the 'craft of life'. It is an organizing framework - like a craftsman's workshop - to practice life as a defined 'craft', and not a random collection of experiences. The goal; "to craft a masterpiece of your life, and to teach our children to craft a masterpiece of their own."
Review: 5 stars - Brilliant Owner's Manual for Life
"Unlike our automobiles, home appliances and power tools, life does not come with many good "owner's manuals". This book is an excellent one ... an expert operating guide for life that you will want to refer to again and again. Charles Collins does a masterful job of supplying an operator's reference and system of navigation through the joys and complexities of life. The metaphor of viewing life as a craft and ourselves as the craftsmen is brilliant. Time and again, Mr. Collins takes us back to the tool shed and to the workbench to hone, polish and perfect the craft of our daily lives. His book is not only a great personal reference manual; it is also a treasure chest of wise advice to share with our children and our families. Written originally for his daughter, it carries that same sense of wisdom and nurturing love throughout his advice for creating a masterpiece out of our often complex lives. This book is definitely in the category of "must-haves"
