I Bought this book (along with another) for my (quite young minded) 12 year old. And this was the better one by far. It covered everything he needed to know about puberty and evens covers topics of peer pressure, bullying and cyber saftey. My sister has a 9 year old son (who is mature 9yr old) and I have recommended this book to her as it is easy to understand and just enough information without being too graphic. My son read it constantly every night until he finished it, asked me any questions he had and even talked about it to us. I think it has made him a lot more confident of what is happening and might happen. I can't recommend it enough.

I bought this for my almost 11 year old. We've read bits together; he's read it on his own; it's been a really good way to start discussing puberty from a boys point of view. It's easy to read and simple to understand, but goes into just enough detail without terrifying him. I'm really pleased I bought it! Bring on the sweaty armpits!!

My son wasn't too happy that I had bought him this book but when it arrived he opened it and started reading it out to me. it is very funny and helps deal with a sometimes difficult situation. Not embarrasing!

As a mother of sons, this book explains in much more detail than I as a woman could explain, and my son has really enjoyed reading it. I will certainly be passing it on to my younger sons prior to them joining high school.

Bought this for my 11 year old son. It is short and easy to read. Covers all aspects of puberty from a boys point of view. My son has been reading bits of it. He has commented that it is good and he likes the way the author describes things. We are now actually chatting about what he's read so it has made conversations easier. It doesn't discuss sex, pregnancy etc.

My son has been reading this book in small bite size pieces. I feel it is a book that he will keep going back to over the next couple of years. He is 14.
