"This book was perfect for my 15-year-old nephew. Great advice, and how-to's and lessons. Upon opening it, he was a bit sheepishly embarrassed about it, but later I saw him looking through it, and he said he could tell he was going to enjoy it. My adult brother also said he wanted to look at it, so maybe it is a good book for men of all ages! Fun and informative read!" - Amazon Review

The guys that read them loved the book and got through it quickly! I’m buying more for my youth group guys!" - Amazon Review

A perfect gift for chilly nights on the football field, bonfire, or star gazing.
