This book was certainly a very pleasant surprise! I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. This was such a quick, but powerful read, and Leslie writes truth-sometimes bluntly, but in a refreshing, non-judgemental way. Yay! My kind of reading.

I was so impacted by her thoughts on masculinity, gender roles, modesty standards, purity,ect. She's just such a great, wise author!

Another tiny thing I liked was how many quotes she included in here. Quotes from godly young men, magazine artic
What can I say about this book?? It was incredible! I read it through in one day, and believe me, I usually cannot do that with these “self-help” types of books. But I did with Answering the Guy Questions. And I couldn’t stop thinking about it… still can’t stop thinking about it. Leslie Ludy addressed some tough issues, but with stunning truth! I truly loved this book! It’s the best self-help book I have read yet.

Some things she talks about are… guys and lust… what should we women do about it?

What can I say about this book, but that I urge you all my sisters in the LORD to read this book. It is entirely scriptural and has the power to stir your heart with love for our heavenly King and return him as your first love. It certainly did for me! I feel like my eyes have opened to so many new things and you know what, this book is a lot about the qualities a warrior poet man who is worthy of your heart should have. However, to me while I very much want to be married to a warrior poet somed ...more

This was an amazing book. I learned SO much.
Mostly about having a good relationship with God.
And staying pure in your thought life, and friend ships and relationships with guys.

If you're a single woman who has given up on finding the right guy - Leslie Ludy has some powerful advice for you in her newest book: Answering the Guy Questions - The Set Apart Girl's Guide To Relating To The Opposite Sex.

Drawing from her own personal experience and the stories of young men and women who are tired of the oversexed dating scene, Leslie exposes the modern myths of today's critical relationship issues and offers a fresh, Biblical perspective on finding a mate.

Definitley a quick read since it's only 150 pages long. But, it packs alot of good advice in a small book. The way that she presents things to girls makes you stop and examine the way you interact with the opposite sex. The practical advice that she gives about handeling tough situations is something every girl needs to take into consideration. If you truely want a God honoring relationship, then you need to remember that Jesus is the author of your romance and He's the ultimate lover of your so ...more

Another fantastic book by Mrs. Ludy!!! Answering the Guy Questions definitely gave me a lot of insight into how to relate to the opposite sex. She showed how we need to encourage guys into becoming "warrior poets" as she put it. We have a huge role to play in our guy friends lives and we can encourage them toward Christ in the way that we act, dress, and talk or we can pull them away from Him. I loved how she shared some very practical advice throughout the book as well as lots of good insight i ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Leslie Ludy is great about giving straight-forward advice that you can take to heart. Not only does she give you an opinion, but she explains it in such a way that you can see things from her point of view and know why she is wanting you to change your habits. She also uses a lot of scripture references to back her up. I'd recommend this book to teen girls looking for answers.

Good read. Fast read! Leslie Ludy's encouragements on how to keep our heart centered on Christ was layed out well in this book. She reminds us that Jesus Christ is our Heavenly Husband who, alone, loves us perfectly; therefore, we should seek Him first in everything we do, especially where our hearts are concerned. I don't think I'm 100% on-board with her idea of the biblical way to interact with your boyfriend or fiance, but it was good, for the most part.

Great for girls that are not in a relationship, it has a lot of great advice of what to look for in a guy and much, much more. Highly suggest it. I don't recommend it to marriage girls/women, I'm married and read this book. Didn't find a lot that I would use for myself since it's more for girls/women that are not in a relationship.

I definately liked this well as all the other books I have read by Eric and Leslie Ludy. This book really gives you a different perspective to modern men today both Christian and men that are not so Christ really gives you things to think about and it is an easy book to relate to.

This is one of the best books I've read. It's message is so much more than just "don't flirt, dress modestly, etc."(though it does cover those topics), but making Jesus Christ our focus and our first love. I would highly recommend it to any girl.

I wish i had read this book 14 years ago. It has valuable information about how and why we should protect our interaction with men (as women). Beautiful standard setting material for any young woman who is growing up!

I enjoyed Leslie's book "Set-Apart Femininity" more than I liked this one. I really enjoyed her practical tips and fresh point of view. She has an awesome message in this book - maybe it just didn't make as deep an impression on me as "Set-Apart Femininity." =)

This book is for any girls that want to understand how guys thing and why they do the things they do. It will not only cause you to see the guys in your school or church better but also give you a new look at your brothers and father.
