Still, good for some ideas though. But the way the colonialism, oppression, robbery, pillage and invasion of British empire has been glorified as examples of 'adventure', 'bravery' and 'noble mission' is simply outrageous, not to mention an outright lie.

Suppose I'd skip his so called historical fictions too. I know that the book is at the top of British non-fiction best-sellers but i would guess many of them are sitting on coffee tables rather than being avidly read.

It was quite interesting to read again of famous battles or heroic figures. I really did want to find out how to make a proper paper aeroplane but had no interest in electromagnets or secret ink made from body fluids.

I know the rules of football and don't want to know about cricket. I found the interesting sections too short and would I know that the book is at the top of British non-fiction best-sellers but i would guess many of them are sitting on coffee tables rather than being avidly read.

I found the interesting sections too short and would rather look up a more specialised book on specific topics.

However, I am sure many a 'boy' will pick it up from the coffee table and exclaim over memories of marbles and conkers - and maybe even latin phrases and the stars.

Disclaimer - I listened to the audio version, which was abridged. I really liked this book, alot. I have to assume though it'd be better in written form, rather than audio.

For one thing there's more of it, since the audio version is abridged, but I also hope there are some helpful illustrations. For example when discussing latitude and longitude.

I think most boys would pick topics in this book that interest them, rather than read it straight through. And I think there are sections that will int Disclaimer - I listened to the audio version, which was abridged.

And I think there are sections that will interest boys of different ages. Meaning if they read parts at 9, they might read other parts at 12 that they had passed before.

It can "grow" with them. Since I love history I particularly liked the sections on the famous battles, and interesting historical events.

Over all, two thumbs up! Jul 23, Jeffreykloss is currently reading it. My dad and I are reading this, getting ready for Asa's arrival.

There is so much stuff in here! My dad and I were reading the Latin Phrases everyone should know.

I am as deeply feminist as they come. I taught my son to knit, crochet, cook, clean, and iron, but I taught my stepdaughter to throw hay, carry feed, raise animals, and put on makeup.

I don't think that being a woman and believing that I can do whatever males can within reason means that I have to take from them the things that make them MALE.

Face it.. I worked in a male-driven profession policing , so I was there setting battling for that equality so many like to tout today.

In the end, I know that I can do whatever I want, doesn't mean that men can't do somethings better than I or that I was a female can do some things better than them.

But at the end of the day, nothing in this book should irritate anyone's feminine ire, just because it says BOYS on the cover.

The book is directed at the essence of males as remembered by the author. This book is boyish I feel like I have hit the jackpot here Happy Reading!

Jul 30, Garrett Zecker rated it really liked it. This is a glorious book that is certainly not limited to use by young boys. It is a veritable bathroom reader in a sense for adolescence and manhood, covering activities, histories, reading lists, technology, skills, and fun that we all nostalgically attach to our young masculinity.

The book is sturdy, organized haphazardly, but that adds to the urgency of its contents that seem to whisper out of the pages as a book that could easily be required reading for hiking on a summer day, or lazily st This is a glorious book that is certainly not limited to use by young boys.

The book is sturdy, organized haphazardly, but that adds to the urgency of its contents that seem to whisper out of the pages as a book that could easily be required reading for hiking on a summer day, or lazily staying inside in a rain storm, or basically any application.

While I have not read the "girls" version of the text with the same idea, it is safe to say that this book is one of the most fun that I have had with a text of this sort, and I can't wait until my son is older so I can share it with him.

It can be read straight through, read in bits and left on the bedside table, or used as a reference when you are finished.

I can't wait to see what fun can be had with this book as my son gets older and we can do a bunch of the activities in it as a family! Jan 11, Pat MacEwen rated it really liked it.

I picked this up some time ago, thinking it might be interesting for my grandson. To my surprise, it was pretty interesting for me as well, as a compendium of Boy Scout-type activities and pursuits and a collection of stories drawn from heroes of history, and some basic astronomy, celestial navigation, and how to play rugby.

I thin I picked this up some time ago, thinking it might be interesting for my grandson. I think I'll leave it laying around on the coffee table and see if the title induces him to pick it up.

It's meant for fathers and sons to share, really, but that will work better if it's their idea, not mine.

Now my son wants the book. We'll probably get it for him when he's a bit older. View 2 comments. Jun 06, Annika Barranti rated it it was amazing Shelves: parenting-and-education.

Aug 14, Dawn rated it really liked it. Great book for boys, for reference or otherwise. Some inaccuracies, but overall a great product and a good read.

Will likely also be enjoyable for more adventuresome girls May 16, Michael Xavier rated it it was amazing.

I buy this book for every boy I care about. It is perfect tinder for a young mind to fan the flames to the fire of personal wonder for the rest of their lives.

Oct 05, J. Grice rated it really liked it Shelves: collections-essays. Takes you back to the golden age of "do it yourself" fun stuff for boys.

Cool book! Dec 21, Cuong Truong rated it really liked it Shelves: factual. Despite having quite an intimidating book title that no mother would ever think of giving to her child, you really need take a peek inside before making that snap judgment.

Within the pages is an interesting encyclopedic guide to what all little boys should know. This handy hardback actually covers tit bits of various subjects of the National Curriculum.

Some of which include: science; making a battery, why is the sky blue? PE; a diagrammatic illustration of the laws of football.

Math; how do we measure the world's circumference? Some of the more controversial material; How to Play Poker, skimming stones, girls just in case you are wondering it is all quite innocent, the advice goes if you like a girl be nice, don't break wind and make her laugh!

A text targeted at the upper end of key stage 2. This book would make an excellent addition to every boys Christmas stocking. Containing full colour pictures and diagrams and language which is accessible to young children.

Learning is made fun as it mixes core facts and information with more controversial skills little boys may want to learn. At pages it is quite long, however rather than reading from page to page it is more of a "pick up and find an interesting chapter" type book.

May 20, Kevin Polman rated it it was amazing. DANGEROUS has a bit of everything, certainly enough to keep you reading wonders of the world, famous battles, amazing people and learning chess, rugby, crystal making and building bows and arrows, go-carts, chemical batteries for years.

Printed as a pleasantly bound, old-style book, TDBFB is a refreshing break from the electronic garbage that has flooded and is drowning our minds and souls.

The basics are in there. Never learned knots because you were too busy swiping the bipolar-mind cancer-suicide screen?

Basic rope skills are included. How about lowering your IIR imbecile index rating by doing a bit of grammar review, reading a little Shakespeare and Robert Frost, and learning common Latin phrases?

I'm eager to be off for the summer Shelves: general-non-fiction. I borrowed this book from my older sister who got it for her three little boys.

As I read it I found myself wishing I had had this book when I was a little boy. I especially liked the part about talking to girls a part I really could have used as a lad.

As I have been reading other reviews of this book I have found it funny how so many people seem to get so hung up on the fact that it is called the Dangerous book for BOYS.

As if somehow Federal Law prohibited any woman or girl from reading or I borrowed this book from my older sister who got it for her three little boys.

As if somehow Federal Law prohibited any woman or girl from reading or liking the book. And to do it all without stupid helmets and kneepads.

Apr 24, Jeremy rated it it was amazing. This book is my favorite of all time. The reason that this book is my favorite is because it is filled with all sorts of activities and facts for little dudes that nobody does anymore.

This book takes the reader back to the days when little dudes entertained themselves by reading about famous explorers, and made periscopes and pinhole projectors and marbled paper.

This book is worth more to me than my own bed. If the government suddenly went for a pro-censor campaign, I would do everything I could possibly do to save this book.

This book would probably be one of the first to be burned, because of its blatant anti-technology sentiments, and the government needs technology to control and influence us.

That just makes me want to puke. Sorry, getting off topic. Jul 22, Roslyn rated it liked it. My five-year-old and I enjoyed this book.

The literature selections and extraordinary stories were just fantastic, far better than I anticipated. The rest of it is exactly what you think, just miscellaneous things that seemed like attending a boy scout group that never tried to earn one badge at a time but did a little of this and a little of that.

I can see this book being fantastic curriculum for a grandpa and grandson, making each visit have a theme and a lesson.

But otherwise the purpose of t My five-year-old and I enjoyed this book. But otherwise the purpose of the book is a little confusing.

As a mom it was nice to know what Igguldden thinks all boys should know. And yet Country boys have been building random things in their Dad's shed since they could walk.

Nor does a country boy need a book to tell him to go hunting and fishing. For city boys, surmounting the obstacles to do these things seems immense.

Where do they build a chair - on their balcony? So perhaps this book is for suburban boys, helping them learn the skills a country boy learns just by living in the country?

Or perhaps, like I said above, it is a curriculum for Grandpas. Mar 07, Wyatt C rated it really liked it. The plot is not the best because this book is not really a story but more an information book on how to make cool things.

But the thing is Conn Iggulden and Hal Iggulden say on the first page that they didn't have their book when they were a kid.

So the plot is that they didn't know what to do with all of their great games and ideas so they wrote a book. They also have some awesome historic tale but that is not their stories.

I learned many things in this book. The thing that stuck with me is how The plot is not the best because this book is not really a story but more an information book on how to make cool things.

The thing that stuck with me is how to make a pocket light. First, you get your supplies. Then attach the wires to a light.

Next, attach the battery to the wires. Last go explore and make your light awesome. Through that course of actions, you will have an awesome pocket light.

I really liked this book. It had a bunch of fun things to make and stuff like that. It is a really good book because it has stories of battles and expeditions.

The main thing is that it is interesting I wanted to read it over and over again. The other thing is that it has so much information.

Mar 30, Laurie rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , worth-buying. A great coffee table book that parents and grandparents will probably enjoy more than boys.

Sort order. Start your review of The Dangerous Book for Boys. What I fail to understand is this : Why in the world this book is aimed at boys?

It's by no means a real review because I only skimmed it, and I'm not sure I'll come back to it. I'm not saying that all that we find in it isn't interesting for children.

That's not the p "[men and boys] may conquer different worlds when they grow up, but they'll still want these stories for themselves and for their sons.

That's not the point here. Call me crazy. Call me delusional. Call me stupid, while you're at it. To me this kind of book is sexism in disguise.

Because it perpetuates the stereotypes which say that science, history, adventure is for boys and for boys only and their dads.

The fact is, I work with children every day and I'm sick of it. Sick to see boys don't dare to play with a doll because they are mocked.

Sick to see girls don't dare to say that they love science because that's not for them. Of course the advices they give to boys about girls are kind.

Of course. They say that boys have to treat girls with respect. But they remain so fucking patronizing, I'm drowning in it. Finally, my bit of advice for boys who read this : They're explaining that if a boy sees a girl who is in need of help to lift something, he has to do this : "Approach the object and greet her with a cheerful smile, whilst surreptitiously testing the weight of the object.

If you find you can lift it, go ahead. If you can't, try sitting on it and engaging her in conversation. That's stupid. View all 37 comments.

Boys will be boys, but only if they get outside where they belong and off the God damned Ritalin. Boys aren't girls.

They're genetically different, and need to be treated differently and raised differently. Boys like bugs and dirt clods and farts, but they also need tales of loyalty and courage and honor and adventure and, yes, violence.

They compete, and physically. They like to blow shit up. They like systems that are clear and cut-and-dried. They like straightforward thinking.

That's why they Boys will be boys, but only if they get outside where they belong and off the God damned Ritalin. That's why they invented math and science and railroads and stuff.

Among the gems boys will find here: - Every boy needs a Swiss army knife, matches and a magnifying glass - How to shoot, skin, cook and eat a rabbit and tan its skin - What maritime signal flags mean - A chapter on artillery - Famous battles and the strategies that won them - How to treat girls - First aid tips - Identifying cloud formations - How a sailboat sails against the wind - How to make a battery out a roll of quarters - How to skip stones across a pond - Lessons in Navajo code-talking - Good grammar Fifty years of feminization -- notice I didn't say feminism , which in its finest form is quite a different thing that simply seeks to redress a few ancient wrongs and assure women enjoy the same rights as men -- have attempted to strip boys of their essential boyness, and with disastrous effect.

It's no wonder that losing wars is now considered acceptable, even inevitable when we live in a culture that insists that every kid on a bike has got to wear a helmet, of all things, and that rambunctious boys are put on drugs to "help" them "manage" their emotions and in classrooms where kids get only a few minutes of recess a day, for crying out loud ; where TV is used as a surrogate for parenthood and computer games act as stand-ins for real, hands-on learning.

We've become a civilization of pussies and cowards, coddled by an elite of by limp-wristed "effeminazis" of both genders.

That's what makes "The Dangerous Book for Boys" so refreshing. While aimed at boys, it's really a book about manhood and about what kind of men we want to be.

It's not the slobbering, pizza-stuffing, slobovian "manliness" of the sort exhibited on "The Man Show" and in ads for cheap beer.

It's the old fashioned type of manhood; the type the prizes actions with honor and adventure tempered by discipline -- with a lot of laughter and a few nasty scrapes along the way.

And it's a damned fine book, one you'll enjoy whether you're a boy or a tom-boy or a just a girl who likes real boys. View all 17 comments.

Sep 08, Casey rated it it was amazing Shelves: children-or-young-adult , adults. I bought this for my little brother's eleventh birthday. I knew my parents were finally breaking down and buying him video games, so I thought this would be an appropriate gift.

Poor kid, it was already well-thumbed by the time I finally got around to giving it to him. Yes, The Dangerous Book for Boys can certainly be enjoyed by twenty-something girls, too.

It's crazy informative. Do you know how to skin a rabbit? I do now. Or how to build a go cart? Race ya. Or what went down at the Battle of T I bought this for my little brother's eleventh birthday.

Or what went down at the Battle of Thermopylae? Or what an objective pronoun is? All very useful information. It's also pretty darn funny.

It advises young boys that when they're older, flowers really do work with girls. But it warns not to try it now--they'll just look awkward.

You get the idea. Basically, this is the best book ever, whether you're a boy with a long summer ahead of him, or a grown-up who remembers what those summers were like.

Please buy it for every kid you know. View 1 comment. Nov 10, Sophie Crane rated it it was amazing.

Good book. The boys know what they are interested in begining from the history and biology to sports and Britain.

Is a good book. Dec 09, Ryan rated it did not like it Recommends it for: ya. Shelves: ya.

I had a couple reasons for picking up this book. I knew it was a newer book, but I still managed to get roped in by the old-time feel of it.

Even the print and illustrations have the old time feel. All kinds of stuff I could build or try. All of it dangerous!

So those two factors had me also. The only way this book is dangerous is if you dropped it from high atop a skyscraper at an unsuspecting crowd below.

Or used it as a blunt object to pound some insert your own thought here into the authors. Or set fire to it hoping you never have to see it again and it catches something around it of value on fire as well.

The few things in there that looked effort-worthy had terrible directions and illustrations. I consider myself a person that can visualize something if you describe it to me.

Even with terrible directions, I can usually figure things out. And a couple of those had pictures accompanying the directions!!!

An admirable thing this book tries to do is inform the reader. Oct 17, Andrew rated it liked it. I will admit I have had this book for some time - but I thought it was about time I finished it and listed it.

The good and I guess bad thing about this book is that like any annual it has a series of articles on various subjects meaning it is perfect to dip in and out of when ever you feel like it - which also makes it potentially impossible to finish!

Now this book is a mixture of articles as I say which generally means there is something there for everyone and yes I did learn a thing or two I will admit I have had this book for some time - but I thought it was about time I finished it and listed it.

Now this book is a mixture of articles as I say which generally means there is something there for everyone and yes I did learn a thing or two reading it.

I guess part of my reluctance was that for a while at least the book and all the subsequent sequels, specials and versions, meant that it was everywhere.

I guess it was for a time the equivalent to the Da Vinci Code or The Time Travellers Wife or those "fifty shades" books That aside though I do have one special reason for reading this and enjoying it.

When I was growing up I sometimes went through my fathers books and I discovered a number of "Boys Own" annuals from the s -the kind where it teaches you about the Zulus on one page on the next how to ride a horse and the next how to make your own fireworks it was the homemade explosives that caught my attention.

This book has tried to recapture some of that summer excitement where nothing was impossible with a little ingenuity and imagination.

Seems such a far cry from the world we live in today. And for that alone I think book should be applauded BUT i think also this is part of the books failings as people bought it I feel to recapture that lost something not realising that the book alone will not fix that feeling but rather act as a reminder of what we have potentially lost or at least misplaced.

Here I could go on and on about you can give people the tools to fix things but unless the motivation is there it is all wasted horse and water spring to mind but I will resist the temptation to preach.

But I do feel that is why for a while at least this book was everywhere. Anyway back to the book - it is a great tome to read through and it does have some fascinating articles to read and I am glad I have a copy and I have no intention of getting rid of it any time soon.

May 12, Deanrx rated it it was amazing. Its about time we, as parents and especially as fathers, stop appoligizing for boys being boys.

And I think there are sections that will interest boys of different ages. Meaning if they read parts at 9, they might read other parts at 12 that they had passed before.

It can "grow" with them. Since I love history I particularly liked the sections on the famous battles, and interesting historical events.

Over all, two thumbs up! Jul 23, Jeffreykloss is currently reading it. My dad and I are reading this, getting ready for Asa's arrival.

There is so much stuff in here! My dad and I were reading the Latin Phrases everyone should know. Apr 25, Robyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: children , nonfiction , april-challenge , middle-school , really-great-book , ya-ya-ya-ya.

I am as deeply feminist as they come. I taught my son to knit, crochet, cook, clean, and iron, but I taught my stepdaughter to throw hay, carry feed, raise animals, and put on makeup.

I don't think that being a woman and believing that I can do whatever males can within reason means that I have to take from them the things that make them MALE.

Face it.. I worked in a male-driven profession policing , so I was there setting battling for that equality so many like to tout today.

In the end, I know that I can do whatever I want, doesn't mean that men can't do somethings better than I or that I was a female can do some things better than them.

But at the end of the day, nothing in this book should irritate anyone's feminine ire, just because it says BOYS on the cover.

The book is directed at the essence of males as remembered by the author. This book is boyish I feel like I have hit the jackpot here Happy Reading!

Jul 30, Garrett Zecker rated it really liked it. This is a glorious book that is certainly not limited to use by young boys.

It is a veritable bathroom reader in a sense for adolescence and manhood, covering activities, histories, reading lists, technology, skills, and fun that we all nostalgically attach to our young masculinity.

The book is sturdy, organized haphazardly, but that adds to the urgency of its contents that seem to whisper out of the pages as a book that could easily be required reading for hiking on a summer day, or lazily st This is a glorious book that is certainly not limited to use by young boys.

The book is sturdy, organized haphazardly, but that adds to the urgency of its contents that seem to whisper out of the pages as a book that could easily be required reading for hiking on a summer day, or lazily staying inside in a rain storm, or basically any application.

While I have not read the "girls" version of the text with the same idea, it is safe to say that this book is one of the most fun that I have had with a text of this sort, and I can't wait until my son is older so I can share it with him.

It can be read straight through, read in bits and left on the bedside table, or used as a reference when you are finished.

I can't wait to see what fun can be had with this book as my son gets older and we can do a bunch of the activities in it as a family!

Jan 11, Pat MacEwen rated it really liked it. I picked this up some time ago, thinking it might be interesting for my grandson.

To my surprise, it was pretty interesting for me as well, as a compendium of Boy Scout-type activities and pursuits and a collection of stories drawn from heroes of history, and some basic astronomy, celestial navigation, and how to play rugby.

I thin I picked this up some time ago, thinking it might be interesting for my grandson. I think I'll leave it laying around on the coffee table and see if the title induces him to pick it up.

It's meant for fathers and sons to share, really, but that will work better if it's their idea, not mine. Aug 29, Amanda rated it really liked it Recommends it for: everyone - esp.

Just like the Daring Book for Girls, as soon as my husband and I peeked into this book we had to have it. EVERY boy should own a copy of this book and girls can gets lots out of it, too.

It's full of cool stuff that every boy should know, like: everything you need to know about sports, astronomy, famous battles, good books, and things like how to make a paper hat, boat, and water bomb; first aid, pirates, games, secret inks, knots, dinosaurs - something that really grabbed my eye was 'how to cha Just like the Daring Book for Girls, as soon as my husband and I peeked into this book we had to have it.

It's full of cool stuff that every boy should know, like: everything you need to know about sports, astronomy, famous battles, good books, and things like how to make a paper hat, boat, and water bomb; first aid, pirates, games, secret inks, knots, dinosaurs - something that really grabbed my eye was 'how to chart the universe' - very cool stuff.

Also in , an Australian edition of the book was published. It features Australian content such as Prime Ministers of Australia with pictures for each in color and the rules of Australian Rules Football.

Brazil also published its own version also including national content, including a chapter on Monteiro Lobato instead of Shakespeare.

There is also a Portuguese edition. It was written by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz. In August it was reported that Disney would begin the production of a movie based on the book, [11] but that project never got off the ground.

In , the project was picked up by Amazon for a six-episode order scheduled to begin production in New York City that summer. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
