Would you rather have knowledge or understanding?
Is there a person in your life who's impossible to live with, and shop for? Or maybe you are the traditional type who is tired of trite, and hungry for tried and true; a curious, back-to-basics, slightly irreverent elbow-grease king or know-it-all queen who's only ever willing to settle for the best the world has to offer. We're that scholar and scoundrel too.
A Man-Up Manual, Guide, and Handbook to life for smart alecks.
These priceless and timeless primers are our attempt at a classic guide to the really important things in life, and are filled with practical, old-school basics, some hero worship, and the art and science of living well. We guarantee the hands-on wisdom-seekers in your life will love them and love you as the gift-giving hero.
Are you smarter than an 11-year old? Let's see: What are the two main ingredients of steel? Who is the only U.S. President whose first language wasn't English? What was Sleeping Beauty's real name? We'll take you fishing with Einstein, challenge you to top our Toponym, educate you on Price's Law and the Pareto Principle, navigate your yacht around Martha's Vineyard, and play a Latin word matching game.
