I expected more from this book. Its subtitle says it looks at the emotional life of boys, but there doesn't seem to be all that much difference in how boys respond so much as how they're conditioned to respond in terms of expectations and what they look for in the emotions and reactions of others. I thought there would be something like a "how-to", but the slim advice section at the end was so vague it was quite unhelpful.
