Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janet L. Rose
In a friendly, open manner this book explains the physical, mental, and emotional changes that a boy goes through to become a man. Gurian is the fatherly type giving teenage boys needed information for them to cope with the changes that are going on in their bodies. "We're all scared. It feels like an alien inside of us, and we feel out of control." Gurian emphasizes that behavior and attitudes can be controlled but some people may be offended with the frankness that he deals with sexual urges. Although a complete chapter is devoted to dealing with anger, some adolescents could use the testosterone surges as an excuse for their aggressive and non-socially acceptable actions. Also adolescents are physically able to have sex but not mature enough to handle the emotions involved when two people are intimate. Rather than deal with the emotions in depth, boys are encouraged to seek male adults they can trust and have them help with this growth process.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-Practical advice for preteens on how to cope with the emotional and physical changes that typically accompany adolescence. Gurian takes a holistic approach-in addition to the physical aspects of puberty, he addresses such subjects as developing romantic and sexual relationships, friendships, peer pressure, and even nutrition and wellness. The writing is direct, personal, and conversational. The tone is always positive and empathetic. Although the author's style works for the most part, there are times when his earnestness makes him obvious in his attempt to connect with readers. He refers often to and assumes the existence of "a boy's clan," people that a young man can trust and confide in, and encourages his readers to seek out advice from such sources. Serious flaws in the book are the lack of further reading and of detailed illustrations to accompany the discussions of physical changes and sexuality. The book also lacks an index. While Lynda Madaras's The What's Happening to My Body Book for Boys (Newmarket, 1991) is superior to this title in many respects, Gurian's book is still a worthwhile purchase.-Edward Sullivan, New York Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
