This is a wonderful book, full of "boyish" things such as how to make the perfect paper airplane, how to find true north at, what happened at the battle of Gettysburg, how to skip stones, who Napoleon was and what his mistakes were, the list is endless. Even includes how to talk to girls (they recommend not passing gas in front of us girls, lol) and how to play chess and poker.

I bought this book, and when my husband looked through, he was so excited he took it to work with him to read during the day. He very much is looking forward to having this knowledge to pass on to our son, who is currently only 2 and could care less right now about anything besides cars and trains. Wait, those are in there too! lol I HIGHLY recommend this book for dads and sons alike, and I believe all men would love to know everything in this book, whether they are parents or not; it's just chock full of cool stuff!

I think this would be especially good for dads and sons who may be having a hard time "connecting," such as in step-parent or adoptive parent situations. It would give them something to talk about, and that could start a whole new relationship for them.

This is staying on my keeper shelf, so you'll either have to wait for a copy or buy your own (about $18 at Amazon, and worth way more, imo.)
