A Guys Guide To Life ~ Review

Jason Boyett authors this book titled "A Guy's Guide To Life." This book is a Great resource for boys entering middle school! The subjects range from Peer Pressure, grooming, Faith, Family, and also includes Sex. I love how Jason breaks these subjects down a bit further into three categories: Mind ~ Body ~ Soul.....I think these are invaluable and I truly appreciate how he relates to these boys through Humor and Straight forward talk not dodging anything, especially some subjects that others might think embarassing!

When I requested this book to review I knew it was something I would read but pass on to my DH and allow him to read and discuss with our son. I am thrilled to pass this on. I would share that I feel this book could be a group study done with young teen boys. The chapter on Dating is filled with Excellent Advice as is the chapter titled "Your Neighbor." The one I think all boys will turn to right away is the sex chapter. Jason Boyett knew this and even shares that fact in the first paragraph of this chapter! LOL He covers this subject straight forward and doesn't shy away from anything and as a parent these days I truly appreciate that!

For our family we will use this book as a great way to open lines of communication! I would recommend this to anyone who has a middle school aged son, grandson, or even nephew! Again this book would also be a great for a study group in my humble opinion.

Thankyou Thomas Nelson and BookSneeze for giving me a complimentary copy of this book in return for this honest review.

Sounds good. When it comes to boys and these subjects we can use all the help we can get. With 4 boys you would think we have it mastered but they are all so different. May have to look at this one for Adam and Isaac.

Great review!!

What a great book to open the communications in your family about the different dating tips we can encourage and work with our teens to enable them to become better equipped to handle whatever life tosses their way.
