For Boys Only: The Biggest, Baddest Book Ever – Marc Aronson and HP Newquist

Feiwel and Friends

Kids who read “For Boys Only” won’t realize it, but this treasure trove of information is a tribute to the joys of research. Like “The Dangerous Book for Boys,” this contains several how-to articles; unlike that best seller, it doesn’t limit itself so narrowly in scope. That certainly helps it earn the “baddest” of its subtitle.

It’s a “book to get lost in,” the authors write, and it’s organized accordingly, which is to say not at all. A feature on the fastest and most expensive cars in the world rests snugly alongside a look at history’s weirdest disasters and a tutorial on fighting a shark.

But that’s not all! Far from it, in fact. Consider, among many other things:
” pizza statistics,
” math tricks,
” instructions on landing a plane,
” a chart on venomous snakes,
” Frisbee rules,
” the scariest amusement park rides,
” brainteasers,
” a recipe for fake blood,
” maps of buried treasure,
” great sports moments,
” wonders of the world,
” speed records,
” mythical monsters and
” seven facts to remember your whole life.

Reading “For Boys Only” could pay off in more than just knowledge. Secret codes are embedded throughout the margins of the pages; cracking them can result in winning prizes.

Designed with cool icons and laid out with an aim to be friendly for Internet-savvy eyes, “For Boys Only” is the book to get the “XY-chromosomer” on your gift list. Get one for yourself, too, because you’ll learn a lot from it, as well. For instance, did you know that 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321? Betcha didn’t. And did you know that Jell-O is made from animal skins and glues? Betcha didn’t want to.
