The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun

The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun

Whether you're looking for family-friendly tech projects to pass the time or are simply lonely, bored, and in need of something to do, The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun ($11) should be able to help. The second book — you can find the first one here — from Ken Denmead, Wired's resident Geek Dad, this 200+ page tome offers suggestions and instructions for plenty of geeky projects, including building homemade robots and making stop-motion movies. God forbid you'd have to do something else, like watch your kid play a sport.

  • At The Fights

    It's only fitting that a sport as drama-filled as boxing has spawned a number of wonderful stories and articles, but it could take ages to track them all down. Luckily, the editors of At The Fights ($23) have done the hard work for you. Filling up over 550 pages with works from Jack London, George Plimpton, Norman Mailer, and other literary luminaries, it's a must-read for both boxing fans and fans of quality writing.

  • The Man Cave Book

    Need some help getting your testosterone haven off the ground, literally or figuratively? Seek the wisdom you need in The Man Cave Book ($8). Written by two ex-military man-authors, this handy paperback offers up hundreds of photos, tips for both the budget-conscious and the budget-be-damned, warning signs of man cave overload, forbidden activities — even interviews with award-winning man cave owners. You'll be glad for the help when your significant other decides you'll be spending the next week there.
