When I purchased these books, I thought that it was going to be like and instruction book, or like the Worst Case Survival books. It did not have real instructions, more like a "you can do this... were not telling, but you can figure it out" I was disappointed. Also, if you are buying for your guy... beware, he may be disappointed in you that you dont think he knows all they McGuyver stuff.
