"Recommend for older children/young adult"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this book for my 10yr old son but this book is more suitable to a 14yr old and over in my opinion because there are not a lot of illustrations & it is not that easy to read. It is a lovely book though and my husband really enjoys reading it.

"Fantastic book, my 12 year loves it!!!!"

This is a great book for boys…my 12 year old loves it and its a great way for kids to learn about heros in an interesting way!!


From the co-author of the bestselling 'The Dangerous Book for Boys', this is a book of heroes, new and old, known and sadly forgotten, now to be glorified as they ought to be. From Captain Scott to Joe Simpson, from Douglas Bader to Ernest Shackleton, from Gertrude Bell to Emily Pankhurst, Conn Iggulden brings our great heroes from history back to life. Filled with the British sense of fair play and decency that made 'The Dangerous Book for Boys' so popular, 'The Dangerous Book of Heroes' celebrates those who fought for what is right and good, those who made amazing discoveries, those who moved boundaries in their lifetimes.

Praise for 'The Dangerous Book for Boys'  'The perfect handbook for boys and dads.' Daily Telegraph 'Full of tips on how to annoy your parents'. Evening Standard 'An old-fashioned compendium of information on items such as making catapults and knot-tying!the end of the PlayStation may have been signalled.' The Times 'Just William would be proud. A new book teaching boys old-fashioned risky pursuits!has become a surprise bestseller.' Daily Mail 'If you want to know how to make crystals, master NATO's phonetic alphabet!and build a workbench, look no further.' Time Out
