Does the book include nunchuck skills, bow hunting skills, and computer hacking skills?
I have already looked into time travel for myself.

This sounds handy to have, but I know that I would just YouTube search for something in this when the time comes. Sad times.

Quote from Dravack :
I have two copies of the back to basics book. This one and one from who knows how long ago. 10+ years old probably more. Anyway awesome book and I love the white bread recipe in it. Super simple and great tasting.
The book or the recipe? Kinda got lost in your explanation. ☺
