Reviews - What do customers think about Boyhood and Beyond: Practical Wisdom for Becoming a Man?
Get it. Aug 23, 2008
This is an absolutely outstanding book, and one you must have, whether you are raising boys or girls. In fact, its wisdom applies to adults. The chapter on "Mr Industry vs Mr Sloth" had us ROFLOL and is worth the price of the book. Get one for each child and inscribe it. It is that good--check the reviews.
Mr. Schultz has also written two other excellent books, "Created for Work" and "Practical Happiness: A Young Man's Guide to a Contented Life." Just get them all and save on the shipping.
Echo Rave Reviews Jul 12, 2008
I read Bob's other book, Created For Work, and absolutely loved it! My children (boys and girls) and I all gleaned so much from it. So I was greatly encouraged to purchase Boyhood and Beyond for my husband to go through with my son who is still at home. They are about 5 chapters into it and are thoroughly enjoying it. At first my husband thought this was a bit young for our son (16), but as they've continued reading and discussing he finds it is still very applicable for training up a young man. In fact, he wishes that he'd had just such a book as a young man himself! We have taken Bob in as part of our family now.
God bless, Shymilan
The Best book for Boys I have found May 12, 2008
This is the best book I have found to help boys prepare for manhood. We often think that they will grow up all by themselves but we now live in a society where many boys are being raised with no man in their lives. This book gives simple practical ways for a boy to begin to prepare for the responsibilities of manhood. I not only highly recommend it, I have purchased many copies and given them to many families. All have thanked me and found it extremely helpful.
Better than I expected. Mar 21, 2008
Such a great book. Well worth your money! Your son should not leave boyhood without reading this book.
Amazing Insights Feb 8, 2008
I bought this book on a whim, not something I usually do. I have read a chapter at a time to my three younger boys, ages 6, 9 and 13. But the funny thing is that after I read the chapters, I end up sharing them with my older sons, ages 19 and 17. They are just that good!
Each chapter has exhortation or insight about becoming a man that is applicable, challenging, and memorable. I have even caught myself sharing some of these with my own friends at parties, they are that challenging and meaningful. This author has earned my respect over and over.
Some of the highlights are the chapter on dirty diaper collecting, Mr. Sloth vs. Mr. Industry, Integrity, Justice, being Shy....and wait, we're only about 2/3 done with the book! I HIGHLY recommend this book. I will say it's best to read for age 9 and above...but little ones can read it again some day. The older the reader, the more applicable it will be.
P.S. I'm a mom reading this to her sons...ideally, dad would be doing the reading but I have to say it works with me doing it. I'm the one who is homeschooling during the day and it just fits along with our Bible reading time. Sometimes, my husband will have me read them again at devotionals with all 5 of our sons.
