Review

Praise for The Daring Book for Girls 'Gung-ho girly advice!the boys had their Dangerous book, now this one is for us' Good Housekeeping 'I can't imagine not wanting to get stuck in to The Daring Book for Girls. It's an admirable project' Jenny Diski, Sunday Times 'The authors mix inspiring tales of girls who made good ... with a scrap bag of how-tos for girlish activities ... The Daring Book for Girls keeps ... practical knowledge from getting drowned in the techno-flow' The New York Times 'We've had The Dangerous Book for Boys - now it's our turn. Refreshingly, it's not about lipstick tips, but pioneering women who inspire us' Glamour --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

The copy I received is an American book. This would be great if you're in the States. But I'm not - and I bought this from Amazon UK.

About half the book isn't going to be of interest to my girls. For example theWomen Inventors/scientists section pretty much just features Americans, the patent facts are all American. In the Bird watching section - you're looking out for Blue Jays, American Robins, American Tree Sparrows. There's lots about softball, John Adams, New York Tides, The US Constitution etc etc

I could go on but you get the picture.

Spelling - obviously all US English too.

There has to be a UK edition or this one just wouldn't sell here. Avoid it.

Poor show Amazon.

---- EDIT ----

Thought I take a punt on a secondhand copy (couldn't understand all the 5 star reviews) and got what appears to be a UK edition.

Completely different content and can now understand all the rave reviews.

The UK one has a pale green cover. Make sure you get that one. (You'll probably have to buy it secondhand.)

My daughter LOVES this book and now has a 'Daring Book for Girls' bag packed to take with her whenever we go out. The breadth of things covered is amazing; tree climbing, knots, spies, but it also feeds the mind - she wants to watch Elizabeth and has expanded her reading list too, all because of things in this book. Buy it

These books are great. Some rather tongue in cheek information which adds to the entertainment value. Some really useful hints and tips. I bought this book for a "grown up" friend for Xmas and also received a copy in return (great minds thinking alike). It is a great reaqd that gets picked up time and time again.

Very good book for my eleven year old grand-daughter. Lots of ideas and lots to do. Also plenty of interesting information. She is a girl guide and it fits very well with that. An excellent book
