This book is targeted to teenage boys and is crammed with humorous, sound and godly advice to prepare today's boys for manhood. Using a three-fold approach, Boyett covers the mind, body and spirit. With chapters on communication, sex, grooming, faith, exercise, family, friends and being a gentleman, there is sure to be an area of interest to any boy who picks up this book!
The book was fast-paced and easy to read, great for teenage boys who may not even like to read. Boyett uses modern-day language, straight talk and humor to capture your attention. I liked the sidebars in the book. They are quick little bites of info that sum up the important messages in that chapter. His style of writing is perfect for today's teens. The Biblical basis for the content of the book is presented in a down-to-earth tone, not preachy in the least. It would appeal to both Christians and non-Christians. I loved the book and plan on using it in my homeschool curriculum next year for my own son's reading program!!
