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. 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.

A Guy's Guide to Life: How to become a man in 224 pages or less by Jason Boyett is a good blend of guidelines for a youth and humor. This little book works as a guide for a young guy and teaches him how to handle the peer pressure acting on him during his transformation into a man in accordance with Christian values. Featuring categories on various topics through faith, family and hygiene to dating and sex. The author without being preachy has presented the stuff in lucid and humorous language. Some may find it offensive at times, but it may help in forming the bonding with the teenager reader. The only problem with young guys is that they don't want to take your advice. In this case, this book may prove satisfying. However, for that also they need to take your advice of reading this. From tying a neck tie to your behavior with your neighbor, Jason Boyett has done a commendable job of explaining things to the young mind. It was a fun read for me. And it's a very fine book for a teenager, though I have passed that age, It will make a good gift for my cousin.

Ok where was this guy when i was growing up? A guys guide to life- by James Boyett is a frank, and laid back book about the troubles that guys(young teens to not so young adults)can appreciate. it talks about myths of manhood, to how to still be a gentleman in this day and age, and right down to a chapter on sex, and how most are just as confused as the rest. this is a great book for any young teen, and some dads to to help with connecting to their boys. im starting a boys class this fall and will include this book in some life lesson points. James has a real bead on things and would be a recommended read to any male. ( this book was given as an advanced copy for free by Thomas Nelson Publishing, in return for a honest review)

Summary 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. My Reaction 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. Special Note: Thomas Nelson has provided the reviewer with a complimentary copy of the book for this review. For more information, please visit www.booksneeze.com. Thank you!
