Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys was first published in 1908. In the intervening years, millions of copies were sold. More importantly, it was the book that start the world's largest youth movement: Scouting. This book has been translated into over 26 languages and was, for over half a century, the best-selling book in the English languages, after the Bible.
In this Singapore-Malaysia edition, extensive research has been done to restore many cuts that were made in the last four decades. Much of what Baden-Powell wrote a century ago remain relevant and useful. This edition is the first new edition of this work in over a decade and has been specially edited to meet the needs of Scouts in Singapore and Malaysia and all other scouts operating in the tropics. It is a timeless classic that should be read for its wisdom and good sense, over and over again.
