" Ok... I read this one second, and my rating (I think) decreased for this one. Not because I didn't experience it, but because they used the same words in both books for many many many of the sections... yet they're separate books! & still annoys me with the heteronormative crap it spouts.

"This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).

I rated this book WORTHY!

This I felt is a great book to start boys out on the trip through puberty. It's not sufficient by itself. You need a parent or guardian (or at the very least a trusted family friend or competent teacher if all else fails!) to follow up and be there, of course, but this is far better than nothing. I assume there is a similar volume aimed at girls, although I haven't read any such thing, and cannot comment on it.

It takes boys step-by-step through everything they might be experiencing or feeling as they travel along this inevitable pathway to adulthood, covering everything from internal feelings, to erections, body hair, body odor, body changes, awareness of females, and so on. Nothing is left out!

Nothing can substitute for understanding and educated guidance from a parental-type figure, of course, but if that's not forthcoming or if it's lacking or difficult for whatever reasons, this will at least start the education, and that's why I rate it a worthy read.
