    Hi! I was recently asked to write a review by my mom of the book, The Manual to Manhood by Jonathan Catherman. It's a book review about a book that tells the responsibilities that teen boys need to grow into before they become men.

    The Manual to Manhood was an amazing book. It's a guide for young men to learn how to live in the adult world.

    I seriously appreciate the simple instructions that the book gives on pretty complex issues. It goes from simple "How to Do Laundry" or "How to to Cook an Egg" to "How to Write a Resume" and "How to Get a Date." It deals with everything a guy needs to know and to do his part as the male role model of his future family.

    All in all, this book was extremely helpful and I hope that every guy can read it while he is still a teen. I know this book will be a resource to me as I grow into manhood.

    I have to admit that I am completely enamored with this book. If you have a tween or young teen boy in your life you would do them a big favor by getting this manual for them. The content contains just about everything a young boy needs to know about everyday life to ease them into manhood.

    I enjoyed reading the opening of the book from the author about why he decided to write the book. It set the tone for the rest of the book and I found it very inspiring from one parent to another. The rest of the book is broken down into different topics that are presented with both humor and relevant information.

    For example, in chapter five, Grooming & Personal Hygiene, there is a section on How To Apply Deodorant or Antiperspirant. If you've ever had a pre-teen boy you know getting them to wear deodorant is an uphill battle. Here's an example of how Jonathan Catherman addresses the issue with a wittiness that gets his point across without degrading the boy:

    "Applying stick antiperspirant or deodorant isn't difficult. What is difficult is sitting next to the guy who forgets to wear the stuff. Think of it this way. The smell of pungent pits is one of the most powerful female repellents known to humankind. Close behind on the nasty scale is when your arm goes up and a wet pit stain shouts out, "I'm sweaty!" Living with that kind of embarrassment, now that's difficult. But don't sweat it. There is a simple solution Wear antiperspirant or deodorant--or a combination of both." (pg. 99-100)

    The section then goes on to give a step-by-step tutorial and then it has a section on explaining the differences between antiperspirants and deodorants. It also explains how each works and why you would choose one or the other.

    While I'm not a guy I still gleaned some very important things from this book. The section on parallel parking and backing up with a trailer had some good advice that I hadn't thought about before. I think this would make a great how-to manual for every household.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    As a mom, I want to say that "The Manual to Manhood" is a cute book. But really, what boy would want to read it then? LOL! I love that Jonathan Catherman has a heart for young boys. Especially in a world where not all boys have a positive male adult role model in their lives. Definitely a great resource for boys!
