The Boys' Book of Survival Review

Hello parents and grandparents!  Welcome to The Boys' Book of Survival Review; another resource guide designed to help our son(s) or grandson(s) develop their  life skills for boys.

If you have never visited my site, then you should know that I have a son; and for all of you parents and grandparents out there who are continuously challenged as I am, we do what we can to accommodate for our son's and grandson's development and enjoyment.  You should also know that I never review a product that I would not purchase myself on behalf of my son.  I have read the reviews from customers who have read this book so that I may better help you to make the right decision.

An entertaining book for boys designed to capture your son's or grandson's attention – and keep it!

Quick Overview:

  • The Good: Reluctant readers – no problem!
  • The Bad: Not a true survival guide

My Overall Take: Parents and grandparents that are looking for good books for raising boys should seriously take a look at The Boys' Book of Survival as it presents a wide variety of topics that will teach your son(s) or grandson(s)  how to do things using step-by-step, easy to read and understand instructions, along with illustrations.  Additionally, an off-the-wall assortment of scenarios are randomly placed throughout this book, all designed to spark imagination and promote problem solving.

The Good:

A great reference guide for boys that would be ideal for your son(s) or grandson(s) as it is loved by all, those who use it, and those parents and grandparents who get a good feeling inside, scoring a success!  For those of you who have sons or grandsons who do not like to read, this book just might be your answer as many parents in similar situations agree that this book really grabs their son’s attention.  Also, this might just be because many parents and grandparents find this book to be humorous to the point of funny.  Finally, an assortment of many subjects with short chapters are provided to help our son(s) or grandson(s) grow into well rounded young men.

The Bad:

The books name “The Boys' Book of Survival (How to Survive Anything, Anywhere)” may be a bit deceiving as this is not a true to life survival guide that can teach your son(s) or grandson(s) how to survive in the wild.  If you're intending on giving this as a gift – beware that there is a price sticker on the back cover that cannot be removed without damaging the book.
