That Said...I have one very major problem with this book. It explains the nature of such things as
-the way guys think
-respond to criticism
-are visually stimualted etc...
But in the area of sexual purity, the authors seem to be giving guys a free ticket to sexual sin. They explain how guys are sexually driven, but do not do a very good job of saying they need to fight these urges. They chalk it up to "Guys can't help it, that's how they are, and there's no stopping it", which is nearly what is said! Reading Every young man's battle is much more useful in challenging men to be pure. Of course, it was written for girls, but that factor cannot be ignored.
They took surveys of guys ages fifteen to twenty, with questions about dating, relationships, and sex -- and the book is what the guys had to say. All of the survey answers are in it, as well as quotes from the boys when they met in groups to talk.
If you are a teen girl wondering what guys are thinking about then this is the book for you. (I think every woman in America wants to understand the complicated minds of guys.) There are many subjects covered, including how men hide their feelings under a tough exterior and how a guy wants to find a diamond in the rough, not someone who comes off as perfect.
I really enjoyed this book because not only is it insightful but it's also kind of funny. There are things that I will now do differently around guys because of reading this book. I only wish that guys could just tell girls what they were thinking -- but of course things have to be difficult!

Since then I have bought the man's version (about women), and bought this particular book for my two adolescent daughters. In our home we try to teach Christian faith, integrity and morality to our kids. This book fits with our goals and present information in a non-threatening and frank way to our girls. They were both startled and embarrassed by finding out the way boys think about girls, but the author speaks the truth!
As a male, son, brother and Dad I want my own daughters to have a correct idea about how males see girls and think about them. I believe this helps girls/women have the tools to behave morally and constructively in their relationships to men.
For example, men are very visually stimulated. To girls this at first seems academic: since bare female bodies (or parts thereof) are in many visual formats (movies, advertisements, magazine covers, posters), girls assume it is passe and "no big deal" to show lots of breast or other parts of their bodies. However, this book helps girls understand what a boys response to seeing female nakedness is like inside a boys mind; something a girl is unlikely to understand on her own.
Boys do not only think of sex, and emotional landscape of boys is neatly addressed in her as well as other issues too.
This book enables girls to understand boys better and relate to them in healthy and constructive ways.Read more ›
I highly recommend this to ALL teenage girls.
