For every boy from eight to eighty, covers essential boyhood skills such as building tree houses, learning how to fish, finding true north, and even answering the age-old question of what the big deal with girls is.

The brothers Conn and Hal have put together a collection of all things that make being young, or young at heart, fun--building go-carts and electromagnets, identifying insects and spiders, and flying the world's best paper airplanes.--From publisher description.

This book is only Dangerous, if you think knowledge is dangerous. Otherwise it is simply an encyclopedia of how to do things aimed at boys. This would be an excellent book for a classroom library, or for the bathroom or guestroom of a home with boys.
