Back to basics danger for boys (and girls)

The Dangerous Book for Boys by Gonn and Hal Iggulden
Do you remember when it was OK to make a go-cart from an old woden box with casters tied to the four corners with hairy string and racing it down steep hilly roads? Or when it was OK to build a 'treehouse' with pieces of rotten wood dotted with inch long rusty nails? Or when kids experimented with chemistry sets in their bedrooms creating disgusting smells and burning holes in the carpet with their bunsen burners? Sounds dangerous? That was my youth. The Dangerous Book for Boys will teach a new generation to do the same, but properly. You can learn: The five knots every boy should know, how to build a treehouse, how to make a crystal, it will tell you about timers and tripwires, insects and spiders, provide you with star maps, secret inks and teach you how to play stickball. And much more besides. It's a back to basics manual for boys (and probably lots of girls too). I wish I'd had a copy of this book in my youth - I may have had a lot fewer mishaps, and my chemistry set may have survived to this day. - Fly at a Smile-Price
