A Guys Guide to Life really is just that. Its a guide. Its not a biology book and its not a theology book. Its snippets and signposts to help a teenage boy navigate that not-so-fun minefield called puberty. With tips and insights for a young mans body, mind and soul, A Guys Guide to Life really is a helpful book. Practical body advice ranges from instructions on how to take off a tie without ruining it to how to workout properly. For those young male minds, Boyett really delivers a powerful theme throughout the whole book that encourages young men to always be gentlemen with their peers, adults and most importantly with girls. And most importantly, A Guys Guide to Life is interspersed with Bible verses to encourage and guide the soul of a teenage boy.Truthfully, I do wish the book had focused more on Jesus' life redeeming power. At times I felt as if Boyett was making Jesus out to be a cool buddy you sit next to in math class. Also, the book was not written with homeschoolers in mind as most of the book focuses on school-type issues such as cheerleaders and beating the power of cliques. Even so, since popular people and cliques are everywhere, that doesnt make the book completely irrelevant to homeschoolers.The book is a quick read, so parents should definitely read it first. Know what your son will be learning in "A Guy's Guide To life." Decide if your son is mature enough to read the entire book. As in all parts of this book...from shaving advice to very frank discussions about sex. While the book is marketed to boys aged 12-18, I think that young men around 15 years of age would gain the most of the book. A Guys Guide to Life is a worthwhile book. Buy it for your son. Let him read it at his own pace. And know that perhaps some of those parenting cracks are being filled.

This book by Jason Boyett is not a theology book nor a Christian living book. It is a book geared toward teenage boys on how to get through life. Not just leaning on God, but also talking with girls, how to tie a tie, and other stuff young men should know. Where was this book when I was a teenager?The chapters are very easy to read for any teenage boy so they can understand what the author is saying. I loved the part when Boyett talked about peer pressure. He said peer pressure is not just a teenage problem, but it is something for all grown ups go through as well. Just watch any sitcom and you get the picture.
I know, I am too old for this book but I chose it nevertheless thinking I could give it to my kid brothers after reading.I must say I enjoyed reading the practical guides to life written by James Boyett. If only there were stuff like these around, it would probably have saved me from a lot of trouble. And confusion. Or an odd mixture of the two.The mere fact that the questions were captured into words is admirable. How much more this time that it came with answers?As much as I really want to keep this book with me safely tucked in the corner of my shelf, I can't help but give it away to my siblings who will surely benefit from it.I know they will. Coz I honestly did.
