Recommends it for: the parents of all boys
I am a card carrying member of the Fred McMurray Club. I have 3 sons. I read this book back when it first came out and have been recommending it to all those who have a boy.

My gram always said, "A little girl is nothing more than a short woman and a man is little more than a tall little boy."
