About the Book

If you are a male approaching adulthood, you might be wondering: Are you a boy or a man? You might even hear the question coming from parents, mentors, your boss or girlfriend. Asking the question is not a bad thing; it could push you to envision your potential and become a better person. Perhaps you are a teacher, parent or counselor struggling to help someone determine what stage they are at in life. They need help and guidance, but there just aren’t many resources out there that spell out the difference. In this book, you’ll consider 75 key words that illustrate the gap. Delve into issues such as trust, truth and pride. You’ll examine what it means to be an adult in ways you never did before. It’s also important to understand the myths that revolve around manhood. You don’t have to be violent, a playboy or bossy to leave boyhood behind. Rather, you need the courage to throw away stereotypes. Find out the key differences between being a child and an adult, and determine whether or not you or someone you know is ready to make the leap in The Difference Between a Boy and a Man.
