Blog Tour and Giveaway - "For Young Men Only"

"For Young Men Only" by Jeff Feldhahn and Eric Rice

Summary:
The best-selling ONLY series returns with a one-of-a-kind guide for teen guys on how to figure out girls

Drawing on a fresh national survey of 600 teen girls, as well as hundreds of personal interviews, For Young Men Only reveals the real truth about what teenage girls think, what they want, and how average teen guys can build healthy friendships with high quality girls. Full of surprising revelations and practical advice, For Young Men Only delivers help straight from the girls themselves in a fun, easy-to-read, easy-to-talk about format.

Warm, witty, and honest, authors Jeff Feldhahn and Eric Rice tell plenty of personal stories and draw on solid biblical principles to guide young guys through the often daunting world of the opposite sex. Their goal is to help teen guys build self-confidence and understanding, and show them how to pursue a relationship with a girl while giving her the respect and protection she deserves.

My notes:
I have been waiting for this installment in this series. Although it came at the end of the blog tour and on Canadian Thanksgiving I just had to sneak some time to get into it. And it did not disappoint. Having read all the others in this series and actually learning some very practical insights, I wanted my teenage son to also be able to read a version just for him. Very readable, with humor and sensitivity, this book answers questions guys might have about girls with the answers coming straight from the girls. Very practical and I would think very usable by both parents and youth leaders to open conversations or go over with their teenage boys.

NOW THE BEST PART: I have a copy to give away. If you'd like to win a copy of this book just leave a comment making sure I have some way to get ahold of you, either a blog link or email address, and I'll do the Random Number Generator thingy on Wednesday, October 13. Remember, even if you don't have a teenage son, you might know of a youth leader who can use this as a great resource.

It sounds like a good book for any young man to have, but don't add me to your giveaway as I am an old lady!

Tammy said...
