Book Review: For Young Men Only by Jeff Feldhan & Eric Rice

Book Description:
Just for guys…
the inside scoop on girls
from the girls themselves.

Okay, the authors aren't girls. But to bring you the facts they surveyed more than 1,000 of them. Every teen guy wants to know how girls are wired, what they want, and how they really think…

Or at least how to talk to a girl without feeling like an idiot.

Here's your chance to find out.

My thoughts:
Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a young man, so why did I read this book? Well, I'm a mom and to boot, a mom that is not going to put a book in the hand of her "young man" son without pre-reading it first. I read For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn several years ago and was highly impressed with it. It is falls in my top list of pre-marriage and marriage books every woman should read. Since I have a 14 year old son my mother radar has been getting a lot of use trying to find books that will help him and his unexperienced parents to navigate this time of life. So when I saw For Young Men Only: A Guy's Guide to the Alien Gender by Jeff Feldhahn and Eric Rice I wanted to know more.

For Young Men Only does a great job of helping guys understand girls, plus makes it fun! (Just look at the subtitle: A Guy's Guide to the Alien Gender.) I chuckled all the way through. I think this is a very helpful book, and not only will young men benefit from it but parents and anyone that works with youth will benefit. You can learn more about For Young Men Only here and read an excerpt here.


  1. I personally don't think it's natural for men to understand women and vice-versa. But the book looks cute. Good review!

  2. Good for you for looking for resources to help your son through the fun of relating to the opposite sex!

    The titles of these books always do crack me up, though. The "only" never fails to get me--it's like the signs we used to put on our childhood "forts"--Girls ONLY! No boys allowed!!!!!!!
