Pocket Guide for Young Men Without Fathers is designed to give ten-year-old and up boys without dads self-confidence and teach them what fathers teach their sons. Divided into four main sections-Being a Man, Respecting Yourself, Your Future, and Other Important Lessons-it consists of twenty-eight short, easy-to-read chapters including:

. Walk with Confidence
. Respecting Your Mother and Other Women
. How to Shave
. Table Manners
. The Difference Between a Job and Career
. Saving Money
. Responding to Authority Figures

And much more.

This invaluable guide is full of vital life lessons that aim to keep boys on the right path. It is co-written by an experienced father and inner-city schoolteacher and a professional counselor within the African American community.
