This week Dr. Albert Mohler has commented frequently about a new book just released called “The Dangerous Book For Boys” by Conn and Hal Iggulden. I have just purchased the book online at Amazon.com and await it’s arrival. Dr. Mohler gave the book a very possitive review. I cannot write any more about the book than to say read what is on in Dr. Mohler’s review of the book which can be found here. I have been looking for something to get my young adult boys away from the computer gaming systems. My wife and I finally had enough, and packed them all up and put them under lock and key. Now they will be looking for something to do after they get home from work instead of vegging out in front of the tube playing games. Lord willing they will get interested in some of the things that can be experienced and found in this book geared toward guys. I am looking forward to it.
After I have read the book I will provide my own review and experiences from it.

Thanks for the “heads up” concerning this book Barry. Shortly after reading your blog and Mohler’s comments I ordered the book. I’m looking forward to checking it out and letting my son have some fun.

You’re welcome Don. I received mine Friday. It looks pretty cool. My nineteen yr old boys have already picked it up and were looking through it. I think we will start with some paper airplanes.

Your tough. I don’t know what I’d do if my wife locked up the video games and made me read a book. HA!

I’m sure you don’t play VG for hours. If you do, maybe she should lock them up. 🙂 hee hee!

I admit, I am a bit of an addict. I limit myself somewhat though. I love the Legend of Zelda and Halo. I just can’t help myself. But I would say I keep it at a reasonable level.

Good deal. I will now admit that I will have a bit of a dilemma when Halo 3 comes out in September. Maybe my sons will have involved themselves in schooling or jobs by then. I have completed Halo and Halo 2. It is a great game.

I received my (I mean my son’s) copy of The Dangerous Book for Boys yesterday. Seriously, I think my son might have to get his own copy 🙂
Thanks again for the info.
