Description

The Dangerous Book for Boys took readers by storm and became an instant classic, selling nearly two million copies. Packed with charming illustrations, it is a treasure trove of the essential activities and skills that have defined generations of boyhoods, from building a treehouse to fishing to finding true north.

Now, Conn Iggulden returns with more information, insights, and diversions for boys from eight to eighty. Designed with the same nostalgic look and feel as the first book, this companion volume includes more than seventy new chapters and important skills, fascinating historical information, and essential stories, including:

  • How to pick a padlock
  • Making a Flying Machine
  • Tying a Windsor Knot
  • Advice from Fighting Men
  • Questions About the Law
  • Chess Openings
  • Making Perfume
  • Maps of Historic Empires: British, Ottoman, Genghis, Persian, Medes, Babylonian, Alexander
  • Great Speeches
  • Forgotten Explorers
  • How to Wire a Plug and Make a lamp
  • Writing a Thank You Letter
  • Polishing Shoes

Parents looking to get their kids off screens can use this book to fill weekend afternoons and summer days with wonder, excitement, adventure, and fun--learn to build go-carts and electromagnets, identify insects and spiders, and fly the world's best paper airplanes. This charming and practical guide, packed with hundreds of full-color charts, maps, diagrams, and illustrations, will ignite the imagination and stimulate curiosity, and provide grandfathers, fathers, sons, and brothers the opportunity to deepen their bonds. Conn Iggulden has at last put together a second wonderful collection that is the essence of boyhood.
