Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For everyone who loved The Dangerous Book for Boys-an oddly useful and hilarious handbook for the mischievous child in all of us.

If you've reached adulthood without knowing how to spin a rope like a cowboy, cure a hangover, or make a citizen's arrest, this is the book you've been waiting for. Funny, far-ranging, and surprisingly handy, the book presents tutorials, including:

- How to Be a Real Man: mow the perfect lawn; defend yourself with nothing but an umbrella

- Bracing Outdoor Activities: skate backwards; make a boomerang come back; snare wild game

- Amusing Diversions: float an egg; eat a goldfish; master fiendish tongue-twisters; judge a woman's bra size at a glance

Also includes:

- Sumo wrestling for beginners

- Four diversions with a banana

- And much more

Synopsis:


In the spirit of the national bestseller The Dangerous Book for Boys, Cutler presents this essential life-skills handbook featuring party tricks, parlor games, and sight gags; for the childish adult in everyone.
