If you have brothers, a Dad, a Grandfather, boy cousins or a husband, you need this book by Gonn and Hal Iggulden. It lays out everything a male should know from the five knots every boy should know to navigation, the moon, a history in artillery and proper grammar. It even has a section on tanning the skin and dog tricks. Someone gave to me as a gift and our family has enjoyed it many times over. There is no age limit in learning from this book. Page 109 is a section on girls…. a suitable selection of advice is given. Learn to make a go-cart, fireproof cloth, build a workbench, sample some Shakespeare or learn how to play poker. This book could make a great gift for any occasion.
