Real Men Eat Puffer Fish: And 93 Other Dangerous Things To Consider

Robert Twigger

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Travel writing

The Dangerous Book for Men, not boys.

Every man has faced that emergency where a car needs to be broken into and hot-wired; just as every man needs to be able to mix the perfect dry Martini.

Twigger has plenty of experience of facing down bears, building coracles, swimming with sharks - now he shows every man how to cook a hedgehog, commit hara-kiri and land a Boeing 747.
