Reviews and Endorsements:
"I found this book clearly laid out issues that, not only young men but adult men as well, struggle with regularly. The author deals with them in a step-by-step approach within the context of a story that more than held my interest. You could read this book a chapter at a time or as a continuous read—either way it is impactful. This is a must read for single parents, co-parents, young men who question their place in today’s society, teachers, professionals and anyone else who is interested in not only understanding what is happening in the world for men currently, but for those truly wanting to learn how to support and assist them in this time of uncertainty. It will benefit all. The timing of this book is perfect."
"I have a great respect for Jim, his work and talent to share knowledge through his books. I would recommend this book to any parent, friend, mentor, social worker, or big brother/sister who is looking to further their understanding of the children in their lives."
"Whether male or female, young or old, this book will help you understand more fully the process of growing into manhood, and the importance of having strong models and mentors to help along the way."
