'A useful guide for readers wanting a Christian look at boys’ physical and sexual development.' - Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Reviews)

Review

Have you had….”the talk” with your son yet? Dr. Walt Larimore did a great job inserting humor into an otherwise “difficult” conversation parents tend to have with their growing boys. What a great Christian resource for parents when the time comes to explain things! Gary Smalley Author/ Speaker Guarding Your Child’s Heart -- Dr. Gary Smalley, , Author and Speaker

Dr. Walt Larimore is the perfect person to answer these questions for guys. Some boys don't read many books but I guarantee the guys in your life will pick this one up and read it cover to cover. Great advice about their bodies and their life. Jim Burns PhD President, HomeWord Author of Teenology: The Art of Raising Great Teenagers and Teaching Your Children Healthy Sexuality -- Jim Burns, Ph.D., , President

Okay, where was this book when my boys were young? This book is so much more than its title. In addition to being a one-of-a-kind resource of valuable information, it helps boys see how practical God’s word is for the real issues of life and it provides a unique opportunity for strengthening the father/son relationship during a critical period of life. It’s realistic, practical, humorous and answers the most delicate and difficult questions in ways that are honest and make sense. This book is an investment and I promise you that it is a book you and your son will read again and again. Gary J. Oliver, Th.M., Ph.D. Professor of Psychology and Practical Theology John Brown University -- Gary J. Oliver, , Executive Director

I wish The Ultimate Guy’s Body Book was available when I was growing up. I wish I could have given it to my sons. But now, I will be sure my grandsons gain from its wisdom. Gene Rudd Senior Vice President Christian Medical and Dental Associations -- Gene Rudd, , Vice President

When Dr. Walt Larimore writes a book, it is wise to read and apply. The Ultimate Guy’s Body Book is his best one yet! Pat Willliams Orlando Magic Senior Vice President and author of Leadership Excellence -- Pat Williams, , Senior Vice President

Format: Paperback
As a Christian mom of four, I am constantly on the lookout for books for myself and my kids that will help the growing up process, and I have to say that this book is an excellent source of information for boys going through puberty. I bought once for each of my boys (ages 13 and 15). Coming from a doctor, it gives practical information about the changes occuring in the body, plus touches on viewing these changes from a Christian perspectve--though not in a condemning, you're gonna burn kind of way. More as a thought starter, to get kids thinking about their views before they are directly confronted with situations, like drugs and sex, and also tattoos and piercings and more. I love the illustrations, and the illustration for the "wet dream" chapter is pure brilliance!

I've taken my kids on Passport to Purity weekends, and if you're looking for ways to communicate with your kids about this favorite parental subject, I highly suggest taking a look at this book.

I've met Dr. Larimore. He's the real deal. This is the book that every parent of every 10 to 13 year old boy has been looking for. Written for the young men themselves, the book has so many hooks to engage the young reader that he'll be helpless to resist getting caught up in it. It's genius is asking and answering the questions that boys really want answered--even the questions that they themselves might be to embarrassed to ask. It's witty yet convincing, authoritative yet conversational, and extremely well researched yet also based on Dr. Larimore's real world experience. Well done!

I'm very pleased with this book it is a great way to reach your teen and cover difficult topics.
Read it with them or just give it to them, the info is important and needs to be available to them.
It looks light hearted from the cover but it is excellent medical info in a form they can use.

We have our son read a chapter a night out loud with us and he has learned a lot of information that only a physician could share in a Christian manner. Yes as parents we could have explained each of the topics with some stumbling around. But Dr. Walt Larimore MD does a great job explaining things to boys in a clean manner.

Absolutely fantastic book for a father or father figure to read with a boy!! My husband and son take a chapter a week and read and then discuss it and it has opened many good discussions. It includes all thos boy to young man things that are sometimes hard to find ways to talk about. We were so happy with the book that we purchased it for a friend with 2 young boys.

Format: Paperback
I think this is a great book for adolescent pre-teen and teen boys. Each subject is covered factually, honestly, and to the point. At the end of each chapter the author gives biblical verses pertaining to the subject discussed. In each chapter the author assures the guy that what they are experiencing in their body is normal and that each guy is created specially by God and growing at the pace that God has for him. The author not only deals with guys going through puberty but he also touches on body piercings, tattoo's, and alcohol use. He explains the dangers of each. I also liked at the end of each chapter the author gave a fun trivial fact about real life people. I think that the author has written a book that a boy can read either on his own or use to go through with his father or a trusted adult.

My husband and I each read through this book and thought it was great! He wishes he would have had this resource when he was a young guy. Get this book so your adolescent son can have biblical, straight forward answers to so many questions he has about the changes going on in his body and his mind. Grandfathers, buy this book for your son or son-in-law to give to your grandson, and encourage them to work through it together. I love the format, too. Very easy to read and broken up into just a few pages for each Q & A, which gets right to the heart of the matter and speaks a boy's language. I really can't say enough about this book and thank God that Dr. Larimore wrote it. And what a bargain for just $7.99!

Great book. I wish I would have had this resource when my son was growing up. It's a great tool for dads and sons to read together. Or it's great for a boy to read by himself. Dr. Larimore gives great practical understanding and advice for questions that are seldom addressed about a boy's body. He frames it from a Biblical perspective. I highly recommend it.
