I bought this for my husband for Christmas after hearing about it from a friend. She said any manly man would love it, and would love to share it with his son as he got older. He spent hours flipping thru the book, and checking out what all it had to offer.. and kept saying.. Oooh!! Neat!! Look at this! Hopefully when our lil man gets older.. they can enjoy it together!

Bought this book for my 9 year old grandson. What a joy to read through some of the book with him. I wish I would have known about this book when my son was young.

when my grandson told me he had checked this book out at the library, and wasn't able to finish it, since he had to take it back - i purchased it for him for Christmas. he was very excited to be able to have it available to him, and not have to take it back to the library. he says there are lots of things in it to read about and learn. anything that will get a boy to read - as far as i'm concerned - is a good thing for him to have (as long as it's not filthy)
