    Banned
    Has anyones son got this book, it says the perfect book for every boy from 8 to 80, my little guy asked for this and came across it in town cheap so got it, without reading though it just wondered if theres any reason the age is 8?

    I think charlie got that last year in his secrete santa.
    I thought it was a fab book. some of the things are definatly for older kids but its full of usfull things like how to tie knots and how to build tree houses.

    I found the rocket idea aprticularly entertaining :lol:

    Because we don't start getting "those thoughts" until we get to around 8:oops:

    Too hardcore for 7 year olds?

    If he's wanted it for a while he'll be thrilled to have it. It may sit on the bookshelf for another year but think how made up he'll be just to get it

    he loves reading, he is very good at reading, and saw this at my friends house and has gone about it ever since, so was a little worried about bomb making - lol

    To be honest I think its a good idea, he will understand some of it, and as he grows he will understand the rest. Some things make sense to some 6 year olds, that some 8 year olds wouldn't understand if that makes sense.. He will grow into it. Or like I said sell it to meeeee! Even a 32 year old child like me might not get some parts of it but what I understand should be fun.

    lol your 32 :w00t:

    I've got it. There's lots of super-useful stuff in it, and there's loads of grown-up-boy stuff in it that's fun, but I found it to be let down by the terribly bland and factual presentation. It's just not worded in an exciting or interesting way at all. All very drab and factual. Sort-of like how it'd be written if it was written by a teacher, only by an old but kindly disciplinarian, rather than the new teacher who just wants to be friends with all the kids. 'Tis well recommended, though.
