What are you waiting for, Christmas?

Three ludic and lovely calls to adventure.

Life is certainly scary sometimes, but wonderful and dangerous discoveries are all around, kids, for the taking, as easy as kiss my lips. Be brave. Loft, build, and sail a small boat with your own hands, and wits, around the lake or the worlds of possibilities if you want. Climb an umanned mountain, navigate by the stars, spool out an impromptu road trip into a neighboring state, a neighboring state of mind, a path untravelled. Discover Orion and co-mingle minds with the universe of your own imagination. There are billions of galaxies to explore out there–in here too.

See for yourself:

Don't believe us.

Mike Lerario, author of Leadership in Balance, retired army special forces officer and West Point graduate from Fayetteville, North Carolina had some great things to say about the Second Edition of The Official Old's Cool Education, offered here hot off the press. It's just as well-bred, well-read, and well-said as the First Edition.

Sports, Literature, History, Science, and Geography.

We'll also introduce you to the great men and women throughout history we look up to: Beryl Markham, General Grant, the indomitable Apsley Cherry-Garrard, Dr. Jordan Peterson–our Socrates, Shakespeare, Montaigne and many more. St. Christopher. Virgil. The Law of Gross Tonnage, explained. Which way's north and how do you know? Where's The Sea of Tranquility? 

TOOCE II comes with everything you see here:

Each set contains a LOGBOOK, FIELD BOOK and ROAD BOOK

• 60+ pages each. 

• Handy 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" size so you can carry them anywhere

• Rugged and reliable 80 lb protective and minimalist cover.

• Poetry, quotes, stories, delicious listicles, recalcitrance, heroes, fun.

• Way better than a Harvard diploma in your back pocket.

But wait, there are two more sets...

 

The Official Old's Cool Education I is a monster!

This priceless and timeless three-handbook set (Handbook, Black Book, and Read Book) was our first gigantic attempt at a classic Goethe-esque manual to life, the universe, and everything. These guides are filled with practical, old-school basics, some hero worship, and the art and science of living well. The knowledge, wisdom, and wit within, not to mention the hilarity and almost-unbelievable anecdotes will have you laughing out loud.

Cutthroat Entertainment / Education / Delight.

Are you as up-to-snuff as 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 our state nickname matching game, educate you on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, navigate your way around Salem, NH, and play a Latin word  game. We'll demonstrate step-by-step how to buy the American Dream, on Craigslist of all places. Sic transit gloria mundi and all that, but our advice is both timely and timeless.

Sports, Literature, History, Science, and Geography.

We'll also introduce you to the great men and women throughout history we look up to: Beryl Markham, General Grant, the indomitable Apsley Cherry-Garrard, Dr. Jordan Peterson–our Socrates, Shakespeare, Montaigne and many more. St. Christopher. Virgil. The Law of Gross Tonnage, explained. Which way's north and how do you know? Where's The Sea of Tranquility?

Is there a know-it-all in your life who's impossible to live with–husband, father, brother or mother–and shop for? Who knows/hates everything? Or maybe it's you. Then this is just the ticket.

And last but not least...



The Official Old's Cool Education III is a perfect-whirled gift.

This priceless and timeless three-handbook set (Cookbook, Playbook, and Whirled Book) is our latest (and greatest) attempt at a unique and original, thought-provoking guides to life. Knowledge, wisdom, and wit that's applicable and useful in the real-world, and that will make you into a sort of modern-day renaissance man (or woman) is the best gifts you could ever give anyone.

Jam-packed with Recipes, How to "Play the Game," and Experi-Mental Musings and Amusings.

The Cookbook'll inspire you to raid the pantry and Frankenstein some homemade créme de corps together; chicken fry a kangaroo; become the "Egyptian" at a restaurant. The Play Book has step-by-step guides and prime advice on the best and suavest and surest way to "play the game." Try your hand at cricket, darts, crew, and blow your mind with tough-nut puzzles and trivia. Life is certainly scary sometimes, but wonderful and dangerous adventure's all around, kids, for the taking, as easy as throwing the first pitch. The Whirled Book features longer-form monographs discussing and dissecting the Plato's Cave-like reality we're living in–and you probably won't like a lot of what we have to say about it.
