The Book of Cool [ - $39.99]

British filmmakers Fred and Clive Rees had an innovative concept for “The Book of Cool”: travel the world, find the coolest things to do and find and film the best people doing them and showing us how to do them.  This isn’t a guide to “being cool.”  Rather, it’s about teaching you to do cool things.  You know, the stuff you see on TV and say, “Wow, cool… how did they do that?”  Learn from the master how to take trick shots in a pool game, impress your friends with the fanciest golf shots, amaze the kids of all ages with magic and card tricks.  The set includes three DVDs where the experts show off and then walk you through how to attempt these feats.  A handy, full-color book reinforces the lessons.
