First-The actual construction of the book is solid. It is meant to be used and re-used. It truly is a reference book and is made to last. Next: Who would possibly be interested in this book? Well, Me. A 53 yr old mom, forced to move from country to city, and longing and waiting to move to country again. A 13 yr old boy moved from country to city 4 years ago. Any cub scout, boy scout, anyone interested in learning how to take care of themselves in interesting and sometimes unlikely situations. This stopped my child dead in his tracks in the midst of an unwrapping Christmas day frenzy. Silence reigned. He read.The child is not a reader. This is written at an adult level. Need I say more! Plus -quite entertaining. Funny, actually - but hey -you never know.Read More
