If gender means so little to you...

This is an amazing book. I realize it is targeted more towards my little brother, and I will probably buy it for him. I intend to buy the author's book for girls for my sister. I have no problem reading a book that says 'boys' on the title. I am interested in stars, and wars, and navigation... but instead of having a tantrum, I'll just read the book. Actually, I'll read both. :)

I read this book and some of the concepts would be way too complicated for a child. I am a 30 year old engineer and a lot of the concepts were complex, especially while in the car. The book does not translate well to audio and I thought I would learn something new. Some of the stories are good but a lot of the battles were long and drawn out. I would not recommend this book if you are trying to learn what you missed as a kid.

Id like to know where im going...Id like to know how to build a treehouse, or a go cart....why are these things, things that BOYS should know? And there are most definitley young boys out there as well wondering the same thing...

    A reviewer

    If ever a book merited the appelation 'hipster,' this is it. There are several books this one is trying to emulate. To try 'the real thing' check out 'The American Boy's Handy Book.' It's much more useful (and full of many more subjects), it's genuine and sincere, minus the post-mod trying-to-hard subversiveness.
