The Dangerous Book For Boys


Book for Boys Soars to Dizzying Heights Wall Street Journal (free)
"The Dangerous Book for Boys" purports to aim itself at a particularly
inscrutable and un-book-friendly audience: boys around the age of 10.

So here are instructions on how to skip stones, fold a paper hat,
make a battery, and hunt and cook a rabbit. It includes a description
of the Battle of Thermopylae, but also how to play Texas Hold 'Em
poker, and use the phrases "Carpe diem" and "Curriculum vitae."
