This brilliant and completely addictive book is perfect for anyone with a yen to taste danger, enjoy the freedom of the outdoors, imagine risk, or even just have fun. Less the Dangerous Book for Boys, it is more the Dangerous Book for Boys Who Never Grew Up. From potentially useful abilities like how to find water anywhere (even in a desert), how to treat shock, heatstroke and frostbite, build a shelter from branches and leaves, and fish with your shirt, to fascinating techniques that are unlikely ever to be needed like how to predict the weather from plants, survive a stampede or wildfire, swim through burning oil, jump from a moving train or cross a fast-moving river, this book details over 300 skills that seem absolutely essential to know whilst you're reading the book. It even details apocalyptic survival solutions in the event of a massive tsunami or nuclear accident, and, if all else fails, describes how to extract a natural painkiller from tree bark. Written in a wry, humorous way, this book could be used as a practical guide, but will invariably have a lot of appeal to armchair adventurers as an entertaining reference. It will make the perfect gift for teenage boys, twentysomething males and overgrown kids of all ages. Full colour throughout, it has photographs, illustrations, diagrams and lists, which make it ideal for opening at random to discover something interesting, as well as reading through from cover to cover.
