Another Book Review and Giveaway

Well, I’m back and with a bang!  I’ve been so very sick for weeks, have been going through some huge problems and developments, and have been plagued with computer problems.  But today, I woke up feeling like a new penny (after thinking I’d be knocking on Heaven’s gates yesterday).  I guess the doctor’s meds finally kicked in!  Yeah!!!

While I was “down for the count”, I read a couple of the books for upcoming blog tours.  We have some exciting books to discuss and, best of all, GIVEAWAYS!

Today, I want to talk to you about For Young Men Only by Jeff Feldhahn & Eric Rice with Shaunti Feldhahn.  This book is basically a book meant to teach older boys, teens, and young men how to interact with girls and women.  It discusses what young women want, how to talk to them, how to interact with them, what they say, what they mean, how they feel. 

Jeff, Eric and their wives have collaborated in whole or part to write For Women Only, For Men OnlyFor Parents Only and For Young Women Only.  The writers admit they wrote For Young Men Only last because they were trying to avoid it altogether.  They didn’t think young men would ever pick up a book and read it to learn how to relate to young women.  But, after receiving hundreds of requests, they relented.  They did scientific studies of what young women think about various topics and published the most surprising the results.  The best part of the study from my perspective was that the women sampled came from all backgrounds:  different religions (or none at all), different racial, ethnic and cultural groups, different social classes, intellects, etc. 

This was an excellent book and a real eye opener for me.  I’m 37 years old and when I was young(er), I assumed no one else felt the way I did about what’s attractive in a young man, communication styles, s*x, love, dating.  What I learned from this book is not only was I not alone then, but the majority of young women NOW still feel the way I did.  I thought differently (worse) of “the next generation”.

This book is a great read for young men (ages 10-30, in my opinion), youth pastors, teachers, parents, basically anyone who interacts with young men.  While I don’t personally fit into that category, I am going to get For Women Only and might read For Men Only and point out relevant passages to my husband.  To be honest, there were even a few items in the For Young Men Only book that I thought my husband would benefit from knowing! 

Below is a summary of the book and some information regarding the authors.  This book would make a great holiday gift and is available at www.amazon.com, www.christianbook.com, and www.familychristian.com

Now for those of you who would like to ENTER TO WIN A FREE COPY, please e-mail your name and mailing address to seewhykinsman@yahoo.com.  A winner will be chosen at random and announced on Friday, October 10th.  Good luck!

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.
