Dear Mrs.Myers
I loved the book! Their is so many choices to choose from,I didn't know what to do first.So I settled on learning knots.It is very help full,Especially in Boy Scouts or while hunting. but while their is things I have done their is things I haven't done but would love to.Such as making candles and making a quill pen.I want to do the candles because it sounds fun and is also an easy Christmas present.I would like to do the quill pen because it would be awesome!

My favorite story in the book Dangerous book for boys is the chapter (the laws of football). because it was very detailed and accurate on the length and width of the soccer pitch and the size on a soccer ball and the amount of players on each team.

i would recommend this book to others because it explains a lot of these that people know and need to know for instense kings and queens of England, the British empire, spies-codes and ciphers, the laws of football and optical illusions.
This book would be good for all boys to read. It is one of those books that will stimulate thought and interest in a wide variety of things. If a boy (or a man for that matter) was to read and gain knowledge in the various areas of interest in this book they would truly be well rounded individuals: real renaissance men.
Buy the pocket guide but then order the large copy for home. Not just for boys, this book is choc full of great information that every single boy should know. My son never gets bored with it. He even reaches for it for answers when working on school projects-

I wish they had this when I was a kid.

An interesting little book although most of the "Things to Do" are not things to do on a frequent basis and some not at all. It taught some quick and easy fun little games to play and how to build a treehouse, but to me, the rest seemed not interesting or important.

I thought the information in this story was very interesting and i will have to keep it if I ever go into the army because it had tons of military references. It had tons of songs sung be people of the war.

Great miniature version of the bigger "brother" The Dangerous Book for boys. This compiles small chapters on great ting to do as well as First Aid and other things. Excellent.
Cute fun book for boys of all ages! I thought it had some great stuff in it to keep those "I have nothing to do" away.

I was born in the normal way in 1971, and vaguely remember half-pennies and sixpences. I have written for as long as I can remember: poetry, short stories and novels. It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind. I taught English for seven years and was Head of English at St. Gregory’s RC High School in London by the end of that period. I have enormous...more
