Wonderful source of good, old fashioned common sense. A great gift for the young person in the family - boy or girl. Happy to see that a certain kind of knowledge is timeless.
We would expect a book authorized by John Wayne's family to be first-rate - especially one titled a "Handy Book for Men" but this indeed met & exceeded my expactions. With a son & son-in-law as well as a grandson I was seeking something that would be a good gift without being condescending; this is it! Covering topics that you might never encounter, it's all there just in case - kind an adult Boy Scout Handbook. As a husband, father, businessman, occasional outdoorsman, Veteran & just plain curious American male, this is a prime textbook. Thanks!
Good shipping good books thank you
