Written in a straightforward, honest manner, What's Up with Boys? gives young women insight into the lives of young men. Today's young women have been raised in an atmosphere that subtly degrades men in many ways: 'They're dumb. They're coarse. They're shallow. They have a one-track mind.' Sometimes they accept other stereotypes that are far less demeaning---even hilarious---but just as misleading. With concrete information about guys that helps young women understand, appreciate, respect, and accept guys as God created them, What's Up with Boys? answers questions such as: * What is the gender gap? * What does the Bible say about males and females---and what is God's purpose for each? * How do biological factors affect boys' behavior, thoughts, and actions? * Why do girls tend to speak thousands of more words a day than guys? * Why do boys sometimes appear to be childish? This book employs biblical wisdom, common sense, humor, frankness, and thousands of surveys and interviews to offer young women a practical handbook on how to cope with guys.
