I started reading this book to myself, when my son was 9. Iw anted to read about boys growing up before I could imagine any "teen issues" rearing their ugly heads. I wanted to have the knowledge and vocabulary BEFORE puberty and adolescence kicked in. Within a few pages, I realized that I should be reading the book aloud to my son, so we could talk about the topics before talking about issues became taboo. After a chapter, he and I both agreed that his dad should join us, as he had personal experience himself and our son was interested in hearing about it. We read it together (me skipping all references to drugs, alcohol and masturbation). It was a great experience for us all. Fun, funny and edifying.

The book is only 86 small, large-fonted pages long. And it has comic-like illustrations. Perfect to read aloud with you pre-pubescent son. Perfect for him to pick up on his own when he's 11. And Perfect to read aloud to his best friend now that he is 12. I had a library copy but, as I do occasionally, decided it was worth owning. I leave it lying around the house. And we read it together, still, though now I include all references to drugs, alcohol and masturbation. And we talk about why I left those parts out before and how great it is that he's getting older and more capable of understanding the world around him and making choices (good ones, we hope).

This book offers a simple, useful, honest, informative look at what it's like for boys to go through adolescence and puberty, useful to know if you're a boy or his mom.

I bought this book for my Little Brother (we're part of the Big Brother/Little Brother program.) when he began asking questions about voice changes and pimples, and using the word masturbation. This book covers all of that and more in an easy-going style. Basically, the book communicates that all of these things are natural and normal, but along with them comes gentle reminders of personal responsibility. Gurian speaks directly to the reader (intended to be an adolescent boy) and tells him all the changes that are happening or going to happen to him, including psychological such as anger, know-it-all-ism, and bodily changes like skin, hair, hormones, etc.
The book didn't spark much discussion between us, but I think that was because the book pretty much covered it all. The author himself recommends that you just give him the book. It's all pretty straight forward information that doesn't need much explanation. Tip: Get another copy for yourself to keep. It's helpful when your boy mentions something, then you two are working from the same source.

I have been searching for a book that gives a clear concise explanation of puberty for my son. This book really is a great conversation starter. It gives just enough information for the preteen and encourages them to ask questions. It is a great place to start exploring the world of puberty.

I agree with Susan Taylor's review. I have read other books by this author and was excited that he wrote a book for young men about growing up... luckily I read it before giving it to my son because I threw it in the trash when I was finished. I thought it was an excellent book until I got to the sexual experimentation... Although I still think that Michael's books are great resources, he lost a bit of credibility in my opinion.

I would NOT recommend this book for adolescent boys!! The author wants our young sons to believe that "sexual experimentation with other boys is normal" (pg.57). He tries to convince the reader that "circle jerks, where boys sit around masturbating and see who comes first, happen a lot" (pg. 57). The author describes these activities as "normal experimentation and a learning time for boys". These are actual quotes from Chapter 3.

After reading this book, I did NOT give it to my son. What the author promotes as normal sexual development in an adolescent male is outrageous.
