"Dangerous Toys" is an incredibly hilarious non-fiction, humor novel from the seriously warped mind of stand-up comedian and humorist, Randall S Chadwick. While many chapters of this book can be read independently (e.g. "An Open Letter To The Guy Who Stole My Friends' Lunch"), the single theme running throughout is that my generation - those of us whose childhoods were around the 70's - remains the last generation that was allowed to go outdoors and do whatever they wanted, as long as they were back by dark (or dinnertime). Armed with the incredibly dangerous toys of our day, (such as the 1970's Era Javelin Lawn Dart) and given no parental supervision, we still managed to live and even better still, thrive. The remainder of the book will seriously skewer everything you hold near and dear to your heart...school boards, Baptists, breeding, Craigslist, so...be prepared to be offended IF you have no sense of humor in which case why are you even looking that this book? Oh...a gift...I see. And a fine gift if will be, if I do say so, my fine fellow! All in all, this is guaranteed to make you laugh until you cry (not a guarantee). Let rampant consumerism thrive...BUY THIS BOOK!
