The Dangerous Book for Boys by Gonn Iggulden & Hal Iggulden is the perfect book for every boy from 8 to 80. With over 50 fun activities, from learning how to play stickball to a chapter dedicated to answering questions like — "How do we measure Earth’s circumference?" and "Why is the sky blue?" — your sons, nephews, fathers, grandfathers alike will be sure to keep busy learning fun facts while building an imagination as well.
Dozens of short chapters, randomly ordered, cover a wide range of topics. The dangerous aspect is more credible in chapters like "Making Cloth Fireproof," and "Hunting and Cooking a Rabbit," but it also applies to the idea that action is fun and can be worth the risks. Both premise and content should appeal to many boys, and might be even more successful when nostalgic dads join in.
