If you haven't read this book you are missing out. It is badass for those of you that like to camp and hike or if your like me and are trying to find survival schools in the area. you seriously need to check this book out. Teaches you some intresting stuff.

I second that statement. I built the go kart out of that book , along with many other projects. I would recommend it to all.

Shouldn't your dads be out there teaching you the stuff in this book? Mine didn't teach me everything, but at least he taught me some stuff. Kids.....

But I'm not sure if my dad knows how do make bows out of limbs or how to make cloth fireproof. but some of the things are just for the little kiddies. And just for the record my dad did teach me something important, How to tie a tie.

Im with OMC on that one. Although when i read the book and attempted some of the stuff it ussually sparked my Dad to show me some other stuff. Right now i am building a much more complicated project on my own with what my dad and the internet has shown me.

I love this book. It shows in great detail how to do fun projects. I even bought the second one The Dangerous Book For Boys Things to Do. My dad dose not like to do much but I sill manage to have fun with him( before his horrible girlfriend). And it even says in the beginning of the book that the authors didn't have this book when they where younger and Its purpose is to give you projects to do during long summer days. The activities and projects described in this book are sort of a dying art form that should be revived. I even eyed The Daring Book For Girls for some really cool projects. I am exited for the new one coming out soon The Dangerous Book For Boys Things To Know.

My father told me how to respect life, thats a true lesson.

This book sounds cool though.. Macgyer-ish?

If you like to learn cool stuff, look up "Cool Stuff and How it Works". AMAZING book. Shows fiber optic, satellites, video streaming, ipods, etc...

Also, making a bow with limbs... You mean tree limbs right??

Ive read it, greatest thing ever. I took their advice on girls, to help them lift heavy objects etc. It said if you couldn't lift it, sit on it and engage in conversation. I sat on it, turned out to be her new makeup wardrobe thing, and I broke it. She tried (unsucessfully) to kick my ass. Apart from that shitty piece of advice, I love it. I made a bow and arrow using their directions, shoots about 95ft flat, so it works.
