A Guy's Guide to Life by Jason Boyett

Jason Boyett is the author of several books in the guide/handbook genre.  It’s no wonder that he is the man behind A Guy's Guide to Life: How to Become a Man in 224 Pages or Less. Divided into three sections the book addresses cultural myths about manhood, sexuality and spiritual development.

Though Boyett relies on the Q & A troupe more than I care for, his writing is solid and easy to follow.  Despite its subtitle, it’s not a book of quick fixes. Instead it addresses the critical issue of becoming a man. Along the way, Boyett finds time to handle issues as varied as shaving, how to tie a necktie, dating, purity, exercise, peer pressure and faith.

A quick, but helpful read, I recommend it to teens and fathers of teens looking for a book to guide them along the tumultuous path from boy to man.
