    Critic Reviews

    "Intentionally old-fashioned and politically incorrect, this eclectic collection addresses the undeniable boy-appeal of certain facts and activities....the overall premise [is] that action is fun and can be worth the risks." (School Library Journal)

    Doesn't work as an audiobook

    This is actually a great book, but it doesn't work as an audiobook. Way too much content is abridged because you need to see diagrams and pictures to understand it. Read the actual book but I'd recommend taking a pass on the audio version.
