An Awesome Book for young teenage guys!
I recently read a book by James Boyett entitled, "A Guys Guide to Life." In this book, Boyett frankly teaches teenage boys the best way to get through life, and through the Christian point of view. It is a book with inspiration and tips for the average guy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
James Boyett seems to be no stranger to the natural things that happens in a teenage guys life. He speaks about love, relationships, faith, God, and even acne and breakouts, and how to deal with them. He seems like he knows how to live the best life, and lets young boys know how to learn from their mistakes. In the humourous point of view, Boyett even shows diagrams like how to tie a tie. He explains how to act on a first date and everything.
I would definitely recommend this book to young teenage boys. It is a great way for them to understand their way of doing things is not always right, and that they should follow God and his example.
disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a book review.

SummaryWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The subtitle of the book reveals its intent, "How to become a man in 224 pages or less". But the reveal on the back cover indicates one may not become a man simply by reading 224 or less pages -- or even after reading 224,000 pages on the subject. Boyett admits the journey to manhood takes more than the reading of a paperback book and the true process is a life journey.
The book is a Christian young man's handbook for life including subjects from simple ideas as "How to shave" to more complex issues as "How to talk to girls without embarrassing yourself". The book includes real answers for real guys trying to figure out how to live in the real world. The journey to manhood may be perilous, but these 224 pages will help Christian young men guide through it.
As a full time youth pastor, the reviewer often seeks resources that are relevant to life. Often times books become too involved in intellectually involving the reader while missing out on connecting with readers where they are in life. Boyett, however, keeps the attention of the reader using humurous statements that will keep a young person interested and intent to turn the page for more. The reviewer was overall impressed with the book and will be recommending it to high school young men (9-12 grades). The book was interesting to read and the author's humorous writing style kept the reviewer interested and focused on the material. And the book goes one step further in communicating biblical truth. Boyett refers to specific scripture and biblical principles of life. A major plus for the reviewer is Boyett's direction to the reader to discuss life issues with their parents. Often parents are left out of the equation but Boyett often implores the reader to the wisdom and guidance parents offer young men in their maturity through life.
This reviewer defintely recommends the book to parents, youth pastors, and young men interested in growing into maturity as men.
