|affiliate|| The Big Book of Boy Stuff - King
This has all the important information that boys just have to know. Collected here for the first time in one place, it holds the answers to these timeless questions:
* What do I do if I get a bean stuck up my nose?
* How can I make lightning without killing myself?
* Where can I find new practical jokes to play on my friends and family?
* How can I make a rocket?
* What is the best way to relieve yourself outside?
* How do I tell a girl I like her?
* Why would I tell a girl I like her?
* How many mosquitoes does it take to suck all the blood out of a person?
* What's that smell?
* And many, many more
Despite rumors to the contrary, Bart King was born on his birthday. The veteran of many water-balloon wars, Bart has twice won the prized "Arrested Development" award from the New York Society of Amateur Psychologists. He has been a middle-school teacher for the past 15 years. This is his first book. Bart has interviewed hundreds of the country's wisest guys and smartest alecks for the incredible material in The Big Book of Boy Stuff.
My 12 year old son who hates to read is even reading this on his own. His brothers in college also got a kick out of it. There are a few crude sections but nothing really bad or dangerous. Can be concealed for reading in class by reversing the jacket to make it look like a physics notebook. -NoOutage.com
|affiliate|| Electrical Things Boys Like to Make
From fifty years ago comes this nifty manual showing boys (apparently enrolled in a shop class) how to build a variety of electrical projects from a door-bell and night light to a corn popper, crystal set, and toy motors.
You get thirty three projects up front illustrated with detailed drawings and interesting photographs. The last third of the book teaches basic construction techniques such as coil winding, soldering, building a punching jig and the general use of hand tools, and lots more.
Build yourself a crystal set or a one of three motors, or better yet, help your kids or grandkids to build an interesting project and stimulate their interest in technology. (And as technologically ignorant as this society seems to be getting, that ought a give him a big head start over other kids in his class!).

|affiliate|| Simple Scientific Experiments
"Describes forty-six instructive experiments in electricity, magnetism, hydraulics, hydrostatics, light and acoustics."
From a century ago. You can build a model hydraulic ram, acoustic fountain, vortex (smoke) rings, flour explosive, manufacture of gas (no beans needed), static electric motor, cheap x-ray tube (look out!), electromagnetic gun, pea suspended in air, high frequency currents, decomposition of steam with an induction coil, fiery or flaming vortex ring, thermo-electric currents and more.
|affiliate|| The Mad Scientists' Club - Brinley
A strange sea monster appears on the lake...a fortune is unearthed from an old cannon...a valuable dinosaur egg is stolen. Watch out as the Mad Scientists turn Mammoth Falls upside down!
Take seven, lively, "normal" boys — one an inventive genius — give them a clubhouse for cooking up ideas, an electronics lab above the town hardware store, and a good supply of Army surplus equipment, and you, dear reader, have a boyhood dream come true and a situation that bears watching.
In the hands of an author whose own work involved technological pioneering, the proceedings are well worth undivided attention, as the boys explore every conceivable possibility for high and happy adventure in the neighborhood of Mammoth Falls. To the unutterable confusion of the local dignitaries — and the unalloyed delight of Bertrand Brinley's fans — the young heroes not only outwit their insidious rival, Harmon Muldoon, but emerge as town heroes. Here, captured under one cover, are the fun-filled escapades of the young scientists whose exciting capers debuted in Boys' Life 40 years ago.
This 40th-anniversary Author's Edition includes new text added from the original manuscripts, never before seen or read by the public!
Just finished reading this to my 11-year old son. He absolutely loved it and so did I! -NoOutage.com
|affiliate|| The New Adventures of the Mad Scientists' Club
Take cover! The mad, mad, Mad Scientists' Club of Mammoth Falls is back in action.
Since the publication of the Bertand Brinley's first book, The Mad Scientists' Club, strange things have been happening. Mad Scientists' clubs have sprouted up, kids and grownups alike have been eagerly reading these incredible adventures, and the persistent, popular demand has been for more adventures!
So our seven young scientists, complete with clubhouse, electronic gear, and wild, weird schemes are back again with flying saucers, electronic crime detection, seismographs, rockets, weather control, submarines (for real!) and well, you won't believe it until you read it.
Too bad the good and stalwart citizens of Mammoth Falls, university professors, the Air Force and even the Pentagon are sometimes unappreciative of our heroic, creative little group. But then, they were never real scientific geniuses like us, either.
