Mayim Bialik’s new book, Boying Up, is a sequel to her non-fiction work Girling Up. However, this new project is causing a stir for a very cool reason. Here’s what’s included and why you should totally buy a copy.
Mayim Bialik’s New Book
Mayim Bialik’s new book Boying Up is now being sold on Amazon and wherever books are sold. The book’s synopsis states, “Growing from a boy to a man is no easy task. Bodies are changing, social circles are evolving, hair is appearing in places it never was before — and on top of it all, there’s the ever-present pressure to conform to the typical idea of what it means to be “manly” and masculine. But it’s easier to do if you’re armed with facts.”
The book talks about the physical and emotional challenges and changes boys will go through as they grow up to become men. Mayim relies on her Ph.D. in neuroscience, and her experiences as a mom of two boys, to speak to young men (and their moms.) The press releases promise Mayim, “talks directly to teen boys about what it means to grow from a boy to a man biologically, psychologically, and sociologically. Using the same cool, fun, and friendly tone that she took in Girling Up, Mayim takes boys–and their parents!–through the challenges and triumphs of Boying Up today.”
However, if you were thinking this was the typical body-book for pubescent teens, think again. Mayim Bialik included something that few sex-education or coming of age books have in the past. Or maybe even ever.
