Summary

Thoughts for Young Men, by J. C. Ryle, is a short yet passionate appeal that, a hundred years after it was written, remains relevant for today. Replete with warnings, exhortations, and instruction about this life's many trials, temptations, and common pitfalls, Thoughts for Young Men is biblical, practical, timeless, and wise.

Ryle covers four great temptations that plague most young men: sloth, lust, love of pleasure, and peer pressure. One of the last great Puritans, Ryle tackles each subject with unsurpassed tenderness and tact. Listeners will chuckle at some of the exhortations to stay away from books and newspapers that lead to sin. If only Ryle could see us now, with cable TV and the Internet. Ryle's advice will help any young man to live a more obedient, full life. Thoughts for Young Men is an excellent book for adolescent and teen boys. It encourages them to choose the high path of integrity rather than to yield to the many temptations to stray from that path. J. C. Ryle's style is one of a passionate appeal based on solid logic and the truth of the Scriptures.

Concise yet powerful. This book packs a punch with so much practical wisdom yet doesn’t take 1000 pages to do it.

Not new ideas for me, but a necessary reminder.

J.C. Ryle does a masterful job of showing the import of young men and I would even say all people being very cognizant of the wiles of the devil and our human failings.

Words befitting all Peoples

honestly one of the better wise words of theologian. Men read this book and exhort younger men to Godly living and the rejection of immoral ungodly pursuits.

Great Wisdom

Excellent book with a wonderful narrator. Short book, I've listened to it twice and will probably listen to it again to absorb as much wisdom as I can.

heartedly recommended to every young man

Definitely the best book I've read (heard) on this topic, I'm about to read John Angell James's "Addresses to young men", but I doubt that there is a book as good as this one on this particular subject
