There's a lot a guy needs to know as he grows up and makes his way in the world. And a lot of it, he wouldn't necessarily want to have to ask about because then, well, people would know he didn't know what he was doing! For all the guys out there who want to have it all together, Jonathan Catherman offers this collection of one hundred step-by-step instructions on almost everything a guy needs to know, including how to
· wear cologne correctly
· manage a credit card
· talk to a girl
· plan a date
· write a résumé
· ask for a reference
· clean a bathroom
· throw a football
· change a tire
· behave during a traffic stop
· fold a shirt
· tie a tie
· grill a steak
· clear a sink drain
· find a stud in a wall
In fact, if it's in here, it's an important skill or character trait practiced by capable and confident men. With great illustrations and a supporting website, this all-in-one reference tool for young men in the making is the perfect gift for birthdays, graduations, or any occasion.

My take on this book:
There are so many things that our young men need to know as they achieve manhood, and The Manual To Manhood is like a man to man talk that will help as teen boys hit that coming of age stage where they transition from boy to man! Written in a very easy to read down to earth manner, that will makes it so easy to connect with what the author is saying.  The conversational tone that the author uses is perfect for pulling the reader in,and the practical  topics that are touched on will keep them reading!  Some of the topics seemed almost to simple, such as how to shake hands, or how to wash hands or face, or how to trim fingernails, but as I read the topics they fit perfectly because they are very important things that young men need to know in order to feel self assured as they reach manhood. As I read this book I found myself wishing I would have had it when my own son was at this stage in life, but truthfully I am going to share it with him so that he can read the chapter on using tools and fixing things. Overall this is a very needful book for any boy who is on the cusp of manhood, and would be a perfect book to use in home schooling and even in main stream schools because of its useful content.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
