Shanti Feldhahn’s perky voice is ideal for the target audience of this guide to the inner lives of young men: teen girls. Through surveys and discussions with 15-to-20-year-old men, she and her co-author found that they care less about getting love and affection than about being respected for their competence, reliability, and moral strength. Their insecurities and fear of being judged are typically masked by overconfidence, humor, bravado, or “faking it”—coping mechanisms that make life difficult for young women trying to understand them. The authors’ advice on sex and the importance of developing inner and outer beauty is culturally attuned. With its eye-opening insights and steady encouragement to teens to take more control of their lives, this is a heartfelt and important audio resource.
