Read from October 18 to 29, 2012

I am usually somewhat annoyed when authors simplify their writing style to speak to a general audience, but it did not bother me here. The message is straight forward and Dr. Leonard Sax gives some very practical advice to parents on how to help their sons overcome the five key problems he identifies. It puts ink to some things I've believed about myself and my own educational experience in particular and as such, I would recommended it to men ages 35 and below for the sake of self-knowledge. However, this book is even more essential reading for parents and those who hope to have children in the future.
