Description

The thrill of a flint-tipped arrow from your very own hand-crafted bow piercing a target at fifty yards; the crisp smell of a night sky and the glittering constellations viewed from your own treehouse; the air whipping your face as you hurtle downhill in a go-kart; the pride of tying a decent bowline knot, or making a battery from vinegar and coins. That's what boyhood is all about. Beyond the Playstation and Gameboys, there are real adventures to be had, skills to be conquered, and conker fights to be won. Conn and Hal Iggulden have compiled the ultimate dangerous book for boys. Everything, any boy could ever yearn to know is here: every essential fact of life from identifying beetles to crafting the perfect water bomb; from how to juggle to how to become a champion football player, tricks with coins and understanding the solar system, to ancient artillery history, classic stories of courage and impressing girls. From the daft to the daring, to the frankly downright dangerous, it's all here. After all, it's what makes a boy - Danger! Real boys thrive on it.show more
