5.0 out of 5 stars Reminder of less complicated times., 10 Nov 2006
This review is from: 211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do (Hardcover)
Originally purchased because I had enjoyed the Dangerous Book for Boys and I thought this would be a good follow up. I wanted to get some knowledge and activities, along the lines of the things my father passed on to me when I was a (usually) bored child, to do with my kids.

Unless an activity involves electricity and an enormous initial outlay it seems children don't get exposed to it any more so some simpler things were required.

This book contains educational stuff, how to build a good campfire, adult stuff, lift a man above your head with one arm and kids stuff like conker rules. Better than the Dangerous Book for Boys (I might need grammatical tuition, but I don't want it) and sneaks up on you with things that make you laugh out loud.
