Editorial Reviews

Review

The Little Black Book for Guys is a light-hearted and down-to-earth guide to a topic of vital importance to most male teens, written in language they can relate to. The potentially dry medical terms are related with concise with.. Best of all, the advice offered never fails to emphasize the importance of communication and respect. Purchasing this book would be a smart decision. (Julie Faulkner ForeWord 2009-01-01)

This is an informative title that takes on a delicate subject from the perspective of guys. St. Stephen's also published a book for girls and the boys wanted their turn. The result is a frank discussion about sex and relationships. There is practical information that boys will appreciate as well as a balance of info on safe sex. (Audra Osorio INFOLINK 2009-02-05)

A good concept which boys can easily relate to. (Christie Peterson INFOLINK 2010-06-30)

In this collective effort young men from St. Stephen's Community House in Toronto have written responsible one or two page short essays on a wide range of sex-related topics, from wet dreams to masturbation, HIV and condom use. This effective guy-to-guy approach makes words-of-wisdom pieces like "Five ways to ruin a relationship", "First time", "What to do when your friend comes out", or "The day I became a father" especially effective. Original artwork and drawings enhance the presentation. Also find an excellent glossary and an extensive list of helpful, related web links organized by chapter. Middle school and high school boys will find this accessible, reader-friendly book; buy several copies for it will surely walk. (MaryBeth DiPrima INFOLINK 2010-06-30)

Following in the footsteps of The Little Black Book for Girlz (also available from Annick Press) this book was written by guys for guys about that most unmentionable topic: their own sexuality. This book delivers straight information in today's language in short, browsable pieces written by young men, covering all aspects of sex and relationships including the physical, emotional and practical. There is nothing cute or embarrassed about this book--it's like a trusted friend or mentor is sitting down and explaining everything a guy needs to know in order to make informed decisions about a healthy sex life. The result is an honest, forthright discussion about topics that young people need to know about but for which they may have a difficult time accessing up-to-date and complete information. Both Little Black Books have come out of St. Stephen's Community House, a community-based social service agency in Toronto, and have been vetted by health professionals for accuracy. (Canadian Teacher 2009-03-00)

A down-to-earth guide to a topic of vital importance... Purchasing this book would indeed be a smart decision. (Foreword Reviews 2012-09-01)

I found this book extremely good for a teen boy.I read it,as I heard it was controversial,frankly,unless one belongs to some extreme religion,I found it to be "clean".It is a book by teens,for teens,if nothing else it should contain some more in depth information,overall I 'd would have no objections to my son reading this book,in fact I wish there would have been sometime alike in my time,I would have perhaps avoided a few mistakes,

Format: Paperback
Ahhh...puberty. Yes, everyone remembers those years. Strange feelings, strange dreams, new and surprising places for hair. So naturally, adolescents have questions. For boys, we now the Little Black Book for Guys. My local libray purchased this book. Placed it on the shelf. Made it readily available to the masses of teenage boys in the local community. Yet, some in the community have taken issue with this title and now have challenged its place in the collection. So, I searched it out to see what the controversy was all about. Yes, the book uses slang and other colorful discriptors. Yes, it provides information that adolescent boys should be provided with in thier own language. Although, the editors should have reconsidered some of the chapters. Was it necessary to include a chapter on the variety of methods to mastrubate? Also, many of the illustrations are less than appropriate for 10 to 13 year olds, pubescent or not. Illustrations that provide examples I understand (I found one in the chapter on circumsision). Those that look like funny cartoons from an adult magazine (some boy mastrubating, stylized images of intercourse, ECT) are not necessary. If anything, some of the illustrations are going to be the targets that are going to cause a book that would otherwise be informative and relevant to the age group be declared obscene and removed from some public library shelves and creating skeptical parents afraid to buy it for their own sons. Great idea, great delivery, but the illustrations are too much for many parents to stomach.
