Having spent only a day with it so far, I must say I'm pretty addicted. Having come of age right along with computers and the Internet, it is pretty often that I daydream about what it would have meant to grow up without any of the things we have now. If you're worried about keeping a boy in your life of any age well-rounded, or simply checking off a few "this is something everyone should know how to do" items from your list, this book is heartily recommended. —John Mahoney
Update: After being out for a day, it's already the #13 book on Amazon's top sellers list.
