[eBook] Playing the Game

Résumé

Drawing on Baden-Powell's extensive archive, Playing the Game is a rich and evocative selection of his writings, on peace - a major theme throughout his career and the theme of the 2007 centenary celebrations, on his own life, from his wonderfull idiosyncratic anecdotal autobiography and includes a healthy sprinkling of some of BP's more memorable aphorisms, such as I dont mind confessing I have a weakness for hippos' and 'The man who holds the average boys attention for more than seven minutes is a genius', not to mention 'Knowledge without character is mere pie-crust'. Imbued with a strong sense of the splendour and the old-school Empire feel of Baden-Powells work, Playing the Game offers a dazzling window into a world thats gone, but whose legacy remains alive, not least in the 28 million members of the Scouts Association
