I can see where this book could appeal to boys, if not for the fact that so many of them are tethered to their game consoles and thus unable to enjoy it. But this is a good book to give to boys and send them outside to do things. It also has a lot of good trivia, poems, historical events, allusions, so on that boys (and just any educated person) should know. I would have enjoyed this book as a boy. Nowadays, I think it is more a book to browse at leisure rather than read straight through, which is what I ended up doing. Personally, I found it a little reminiscent of the Boy Scout Handbook I had when I was a scout (though the scout book had much better illustrations). It is also reminiscent of older manuals, which I am sure is intentional. There is a bit of everything here, and I think anyone can learn something, or maybe remember something they learned as a child. ( )

Das "Dangerous Book for Boys" wirkt allein von der Cover-Grafik her ein wenig aus der Zeit gefallen. Auch die Seiten im Buch sind mit einem schattierten beige künstlich gealtert. Inhaltlich dagegen ist das Buch auf dem Stand von 2006 und deckt von Papierfliegern über Abenteurergeschichten und (überwiegend physikalischen) Experimenten wohl alles ab, wofür sich ein "typischer" Junge interessieren sollte. Eingestreut sind aber auch Gedichte, Lateinische Begriffe, ein Grammatik-Grundkurs sowie Benimmregeln und die Menschen- und Bürgerrechte.

Auf mich wirkt das Buch so, wie ich mir das Pfadfinderhandbuch vorstelle, auf das sich Tick, Trick und Track so häufig berufen. Und auch wenn nur männliche Abenteurer und Erfinder vorgestellt werden (es ist ja auch ein Buch für Jungen), die Vorschläge, welche Bücher ein Junge gelesen haben sollte, sind dann erfrischend unspezifisch. Die Benimmregeln sind durchaus modernisiert, greifen aber auf Knigge zurück. In der Summe ein Buch, an dem viele Jungen Spaß finden könnten - viele Mädchen allerdings auch.Aber dafür gibt es ja noch das "Daring book for girls", aus dem in der deutschen Version dann das Secret Book wurde. Mit deutlich mehr Spiel- und Bastelanleitungen - beide Bücher zusammen geben dann ein rundes Bild. ( )

Like a bright lad with a chemistry set, “The Dangerous Book” generates a reaction with a smart mix: one part conservative polemic and one part simple-pleasures fable. It’s a rejection of the namby-pamby parenting of the 1970s. In its place, the authors evoke a peculiar, if fun, British Empire boyhood, one in which sturdy boys are expected to strive to “conquer worlds.” The book sells its thrills hard, and it certainly made this reader swoon at the idea of a son who recites “Ozymandias” and knows celestial navigation.

Gr 4-8 - Intentionally old-fashioned and politically incorrect, this eclectic collection addresses the undeniable boy-appeal of certain facts and activities. Dozens of short chapters, in fairly random order, cover a wide range of topics in conversational prose. Simple instructions for coin tricks and paper airplanes alternate with excerpts from history such as "Famous Battles" and facts about ancient wonders of the world and astronomy. The "dangerous" aspect is more apparent in such chapters as "Making Cloth Fireproof," and "Hunting and Cooking a Rabbit," but also applies to the overall premise that action is fun and can be worth the risks. A section on stickball, for instance, includes advice to possibly "flee the vicinity" in the event of a broken window. The information is appropriately concise. The knot-tying section, for example, sticks to five basic varieties with clear instructions and useful diagrams. Occasional topics such as "Marbling Paper" and "Latin Phrases Every Boy Should Know" may not fit the stereotypical interests of young males, but support the general theme of cultivating curiosity. The authors refer to their own experiences as they tested the activities, lending an appealing personal tone. Tongue-in-cheek humor emerges throughout, notably in eight bits of advice offered in the chapter called "Girls." Already a best seller in England, this American edition features several adjustments, such as substituting "The Declaration of Independence" for "Patron Saints of Britain." Both premise and content should appeal to many boys, and might be even more successful when nostalgic dads join in.-Steven Engelfried, Multnomah County Library, OR

Motto
Information från den engelska sidan med allmänna fakta. Redigera om du vill anpassa till ditt språk.
Don't worry about genius and don't worry about not being clever. Trust rather to hard work, perseverance, and determination. The best motto for a long march is "Don't grumble. Plug on."
You hold your future in your own hands. Never waver in this belief. Don't swagger. The boy who swaggers - like the man who swaggers - has little else that he can do. He is a cheap-Jack crying his own paltry wares. It is the empty tin that rattles most. Be honest. Be loyal. Be kind. Remember that the hardest thing to acquire is the faculty of being unselfish. As a quality it is one of the finest attributes of manliness.
Love the sea. the ringing beach and the open downs.
Keep clean, body and mind.
--Sir Frederick Treves...to HM the King...September 2, 1903

To all of those people who said "You have to include..."
until we had to avoid telling anyone else about the book
for fear of the extra chapters. Particular thanks to Bernard
Cornwell, whose advice helped us through a difficult time and
Paul D'Urso, a good father and a good friend.
