Do you know how to escape from an alligator, ride a wave, or land an airplane? No? So what are you waiting for? Necessary Skills and Then Some will show you how to do all this, and lots of other things you didn't realize you wanted to do. Stuff that's useful, cool, mind-boggling, or just fun. Grow mineral crystals, make a friend scream, fry lunch in the sun, measure a tree's height, turn a magazine into a necklace, keep ants as pets... Step by step, you'll see how to make, explore, and do pretty much everything!
