      Comments about Secret Boys' Business:

      I have 3 boys so this book will be well used by the time it reaches my 3rd child, as my first likes to revisit it now and then as he reaches each stage through puberty. He particularly likes that it is cartoon version so he doesn't seem to get too bored with it, clear and straight to the point.
