The Dangerous Book for Boys

April 13, 2007 at 1:43 pm | Posted in Non-Fiction | Leave a comment

When you pick up Conn and Hal Iggulden’s Dangerous Book for Boys, you are immediately transported back to your childhood – or at least some idealised version of it. Back to the days of riding go-carts, playing marbles and climbing trees. It is filled with essential knowledge on subjects as diverse as the seven wonders of the ancient world, the laws of cricket and a brief history of artillery. It also offers advice on a broad range of activities such as how to build a treehouse and how to play poker. It is sure to interest boys of any age (it certainly interested this 28-year-old).
