About the Book:

- throw a football
- change a tire

My Review:
 This is a great book especially for those boys that don't have a father figure in their life to teach them such things. I would even go as far to say that this is also a good book for girls as well. Learning how to change a flat tire or check the oil are much needed skills in the world and both genders should know how to do these skills. My children know how to do many of the skills listed in the book but this manual is a good book to have around for a reminder course as well.

 The Manual to Manhood, not only covers "manly" type things but also things boys need to learn, especially if they plan to live on their own someday. Such things as making pancakes, grilling a steak, writing a resume, etc. A great book to help with everyday tasks is a great help in today's society. This book is brilliant and we need one for girls!
