Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

British brothers Conn and Hal Iggulden wrote their "dangerous book"--a compilation of things boys should know--to inspire boys to be boys and play games outdoors instead of indoor video ones. This abridged version necessarily excludes most of the how-tos (tying knots, making a bow and arrow) and concentrates on questions about the world ("Why is it hotter at the Equator?"), rules of stickball and soccer, notes on fishing, and stories of famous battles and personal courage (Robert Falcon Scott, Robert the Bruce). Oliver Wyman adds an effective and appropriate gee-whiz tone to his reading. At times, Wyman even sounds a bit like radio personality Casey Kasem "counting 'em down" (except he's counting up) when numbering off famous battles and stories.
