  • The Dangerous Book for Boys




An American Girl


America's quintessential boy!

SC was a pyromaniac

boys should take risks (girls shouldn't)

and have matches and pocketknives (and kill frogs with firecrackers!)

boys love danger

boys need to treat girls differently, because they are so fragile

girls like to talk

guide on how to build a man

have to do all the boys' things first

but not like a bar mitzvah

evolution is more dangerous of all

looking at a wide range of ideas

boys need heroes, to see what they are capable of

girls don't need heroes, or to see what they are capable of; they just need to cook and clean and stand by their men (daddy first, husband next)

won't come out as a video game

doesn't teach boys the most dangerous game: hunting each other
