I have read a lot of books since I started reading as a youngster. When I was saved I started reading books that were Christian or pertained to my walk with Christ.
I say all of this to say that I have not read a book in my Christian life that is so dead-on convicting as this book. Don't let the title fool you. This book is for boys and men of all ages. It has been the kind of book that I try to pick up every year and read.
Here is a brief description from the publisher...
Though aimed at young men, all Christians will greatly benefit from Ryle' s practical wisdom concerning the dangers of pride, the love of pleasure, and thoughtlessness, discussed in a warm, but frank manner.
