The bestselling book for every boy from eight to eighty, The Dangerous Book for Boys 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.

In this digital age there is still a place for knots, skimming stones, and stories of incredible courage. This book recaptures Sunday afternoons, stimulates curiosity, and reveals great father-son activities. Brothers Conn and Hal have put together a wonderful 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.

This audio also includes:

– Questions about the world
– How to play stickball
– The rules of soccer
– Famous battles
– First aid
– The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
