5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource, April 10, 2012
So first to join in with some of the other reviews, yes you should definitely buy the book elsewhere. The price on Amazon is outrageous. You can purchase it from scoutstuff.org for $14.99 plus $7.50 shipping, or you can walk into your local scout service center and buy it for $14.99 plus tax. The latter is going to be your best bet.

That said, I would strongly, STRONGLY, urge anyone who is purchasing this book for a new boy scout to get the spiral bound edition. The boys will be opening this book and trying to get it to hold open to spots throughout the book ALL. THE. TIME. And most often in the back near the area where he records completed advancements. The binding will break quickly and pages will fall out. If they're the pages signed by leaders as record of completed advancement, and you lose the page, it can spell bad news. The spiral bound version of the handbooks are incredibly handy, for both the boys and the leaders.

As for the book itself and its content, it is a wealth of knowledge, know-how and reference for the outdoorsman, whether they are affiliated with the Boy Scouts or not. Over 100 million boys have been a part of the Scouting program during the last 100+ years, and the benefits of Scouting can't really be overstated in terms of personal growth of a young person. And the key to getting the information for it all is in this book. Read it, love it, live it!

Whether you're a brand new Boy Scout just starting his trail to Eagle, a new leader ready to start helping build the next generation of leaders in this country, or just someone who likes to get outdoors and camp, hike, fish or otherwise enjoy nature's beauty, this book is for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality toolbox, June 9, 2008
Here at the factory, we use these to store our measurement instruments and transport them to and from our calibration laboratory to the production machinery. They get used daily and these Stack-on boxes are by far the best we've had. We've tried several other similar sized boxes but none of them hold up as well or as long, failing after 6 months to 2 years. The Stack-On boxes we currently have are all 5 years or older and still going strong. The ones we just purchased were to replace the other brands that won't hold up as well. An excellent product at a reasonable price!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book, July 31, 2006
As with the other Star Wars cookbooks, the recipes are easy and kid friendly.

This book also has several party ideas as well as recipes.

The three Star Wars cookbooks combined hold enough information and recipes to have a great Star Wars themed party.
