The Real Man's Book of Manly Knowledgeav Rod Green100Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.This is a book for the independent and adventurous-minded man. It offers useful but often long-neglected skills and imparts wisdom gleaned from many sources, including servicemen, explorers, mountaineers, sailors and adventurers of every kind. Here, among many other manly virtues, the reader can learn how to: - Navigate by the sun and stars - Tickle a trout - Survive a sandstorm - Safely cross a swollen river - Land a light aircraft - Cope with suspected poisoning - Break up a dogfight In an age when people are less and less self-reliant, Man Up! shows how, with a little forethought and a lot of good sense (and just a few handy implements), coupled with sound background knowledge and the right attitude, difficult and potentially risky situations can be confronted and dealt with. Cheerfully written and admirably concise, the book reaches back to the knowledge and experience of yesteryear, when help was never just a mobile call away, GPS didn't exist, and toughness - mental as well as physical - and independence were valued far above technology. Whether lighting a fire in a downpour, treating a broken limb or harvesting food from the wild, Man Up! will teach you these skills, and many more.
