Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Curious. A nose for adventure. A taste for the dangerous. A sense of humor. Sound like you? Then The Paladin Book of Dangerously Fun Stuff is just what you need!

Paladin Press has always been the single best resource for how-to freaks and inside-information junkies. Now, we've put together our most engaging book ever: we commissioned a slew of brand-new articles from all your favorite authors – plus some new ones you are sure to love – and distilled excerpts from all corners of the Action Library, from best-sellers and hidden gems. The result is a wildly eclectic compilation of dangerously fun topics that offers something for every taste.

Want to learn how to land an airplane if you had to? It's here. Want to know what it's like to drive a car off a 300-foot cliff? That's here, too. Build a backyard catapult? Yep, plus 70 more chapters that provide, in the Paladin tradition, all sorts of unusual perspectives on guns and weapons, self-defense, revolutions, self-reliance and much, much more. You'll get unusual advice on such things as how to:

  • Fight a duel

  • Start your own country

  • Deal with wacko coworkers

  • Rake in the dough as a sports bookie

  • Put out a house fire with a garden hose

  • Get your vehicle on the road after a rollover

  • Crack a whip like Indiana Jones

  • Talk your way out of a fight

  • Disable a tank
Live dangerously. Live free. Have fun. This book is dedicated to all that good stuff, carefully selected for those of us who never really grew up. And don't intend to.
