Required Materials or Books: The Dangerous Book for Boys by Conn Iggulden

Class Description:
If ever there were a book to make you switch off your television set, The Dangerous Book for Boys is it. This is anti-TV, anti-couch potato stuff!

How many other books will help you thrash someone at conkers, race your own go-cart, and identify the best quotations from Shakespeare? The Dangerous Book for Boys gives you facts and figures at your fingertips – swot up on the solar system, learn about famous battles and read inspiring stories of incredible courage and bravery. Teach your old dog new tricks. Make a pinhole camera. Understand the laws of cricket. There’s a whole world out there: with this book, anyone can get out and explore it.

The Dangerous Book for Boys is written with the verve and passion that readers of Conn Iggulden’s number one bestselling novels have come to expect. This book, his first non-fiction work, has been written with his brother as a celebration of the long summers of their youth and as a compendium of information so vital to men of all ages.

We will go through this book in units. Topics to cover will be juggling, codes and ciphers, famous battles, insects and spiders, marbles and how to make a go kart, to name a few.
