Review:

"This abbreviated version of the bestselling book from across the pond ambitiously tries to live up to its billing as 'the perfect book for every boy from eight to eighty.' Though younger boys will find much to ponder in such 'Questions About the World' as 'How far away are the stars?' and 'Why is the sky blue?,' as well as profiles of super-courageous people, they may find denser passages on famous battles of the world (Hastings, Crcy, Lexington and Concord) a bit slower going. Wyman is a game tour guide to all things boy, infusing his narration with a 'did you know...?' enthusiasm that will hook a broad listenership. Sections on girls and first aid (including CPR and setting breaks) are also meant for a slightly older crowd, but lots of boys of varying ages (and their dads) will find this enlightened nonfiction compendium of essential guy stuff hard to resist. In addition to the wealth of information provided, Conn Iggulden reminds listeners in a brief afterword that being a man ultimately means being honest, loyal, kind and unselfish — oh, and 'keeping clean, body and mind.' Ages 10-up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Despite finding time to write historical novels and The Dangerous Book for Boys, Conn Iggulden is in some ways better known as a trainer of Tollins. His Tollin troupe, "Small and Mighty," are famous in Tasmania, where they often play to packed houses. "It used to be just a hobby," he says, "but when you’ve seen a display of Tollin synchronized flying, you realize it’s your life’s work. Also, they can be transported in shoe boxes, so it’s pretty cheap to get around."
