This is definitely a safe gift for any husband or father who is a real man. I highly recommend it. The Total Outdoorsman Manual is just Field & Stream Magazine on steroids. This is not a novel, but a mna’s kind of book. The feel of the book is more like a manual with a couple tips per page. There are literally 374 essential skills in this book, and each one has its own step-by-step instructions on how to execute. They are short and sweet (just how a man likes his books) and they even have pictures and diagrams on most of the skills! It’s humorous as well as helpful. The book will make men want to not only use it, but show it off to their buddies. There are many things that real men should already know how to do in here (like skinning a deer and cleaning a gun), so it’s good for those who are still trying to become men… But it also has some crazy new stuff for the seasoned man like how to catch a catfish with pantyhose, or turning your shoelace into a wrench. It’s like a man’s Pinterest he can take to the mountains! It’s perfect for any real man, or man-to-be.
