"Two of the country's leading child psychologist hsare what they have learned in more thant thirty-five years of combined experience working with boys and their family. they revieal a nation of boys who are hurting--sad, afraid, agry and silent." So reads the back cover of this excellent book. This is a book that every parent of sons should read. I personally wish that I had read it years ago when my boys were younger. Even at the ages my sons are now, this book gave me some insight into what I did right and wrong as a parent. It has also given me ideas on how to go forward with my sons. I am glad that one of my daughters sho has two young sons read this, and I would hope that my other daughter, also the mother of a little boy, will read it as well. It was not necessarily a "quick read." Some of the anecdotes and cases the authors write about are difficult to read about, but the book is packed with important and compelling information for anyone who parents, teaches, or works with boys in any way. Highly recommended.
