How to Talk to Girls by Jonathan Toussaint

Talking to girls an exciting part of a boy's life - well, exciting and potentially agonising.This book gives a realistic picture of the challenges and choices that face boys today when they're talking to girls. Written by a highly experienced counsellor and educator, it provides a clear and informative guide to help boys through obstacles like shyness and awkwardness.Featuring 'uncut' individual comments from boys, this book links their ideas about their ability to develop girls as friends and looks at what is needed to further a friendship into a relationship. It's all about talking, listening and asking the kinds of questions that lead to healthy friendships and relationships. It's not rocket science!
