A Guy's Guide to Life: How to Become a Man in 224 Pages or Less

A Guy's Guide to Life: How to Become a Man in 224 Pages or LessA Guy's Guide to Life is an outstanding book.  The intended audience are middle and high school guys and I personally would consider it required reading for any guy in that age group.  It addresses so many of the challenging questions that teenagers ponder such as peer pressure, dating, how to dress, and sex.  My husband who is in his 30s enjoyed the book too and found many of the ideas informative even at his age.  Jason Boyett's writing comes across as very personal and real.  He encourages guys to think and act in a responsible way.  He does a great job at addressing many of the modern myths of masculinity.

Reading this book is like having an older brother who hands you a road map to adolescence success.  Although it is primarily written for guys, girls may enjoy having an insight to the minds of their male peers.  Some guys might find the chapters on relationships especially helpful as they talk them through many of the interactions they may find mysterious or challenging.  If you have a teenage son, buy them this book.  This book would be helpful to Christians and non-Christians.

Booksneeze provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.  This book is excellent and I highly recommend it.
