You've gotta love a book that starts out teaching you how to FLY A HELICOPTER! But that's just one of the wowza (and more mundane) skills to learn about in this book, which covers how to tear a phone book in two, get out of quicksand, make a good campfire, throw a lasso, and survive a volcano's eruption.

It will also teach you the fine art of juggling, all about taking care of stings, and how to write a poem. As you may have noticed, some tips are practical while others are the stuff of fantasy. But this book is pure enjoyment, from the first tip (how to do a skateboard ollie) to the last one (how to say you are the best in many different languages).

This book is alot of fun and also educational. My boys love this! It has fun activities, such as how to make a "stink" bomb, ugh, and hide it, how to rip a phone book in half, how to juggle, how to do mouth to mouth or get out of quicksand. Some of these are funny, and meant to be so, and others are really things that are good for kids, and adults, to know.
