Growing up is tough...really tough. But what if you had a handbook that told you how to figure things out? How to stay out of trouble? How to think about success? How to think about the guy on the street?

At Duke's Place, Jimmy and Kevin find out that the handbook isn't written down. It means listening to Duke and his friends talk about their lives. But how can Duke, a senior citizen, understand what it is to be young now?

In the tradition of his award-winning book Monster, Walter Dean Myers once again breaks new ground with this extraordinary, original, and complex novel about learning to be a man.

    " "Duke's Barbershop" where Duke and the regulars talk about life and try and show the way to two troubled teenagers -Jimmy and Kevin. The conceit is good, but the book doesn't quite make it, although there are flashes of Myers' usual talent. It's hard to say who the audience for this is, as it probably reads better to an adult with some life experience under the belt than to young men to whom it's addressed to. "

    " Handbook for Boys is about a boy who grows up in Harlem and of course living in Harlem there are a lot of influences and not always the nicest of people. So he grows up making decisions which can be living free or living behind bars. "
