A very interesting and thought provoking book, about how two boys with the same name and born in the same area end up on opposite ends of the spectrum.

I found the idea that while many cultures celebrate a boy's transition from childhood to adulthood; here in the US we seem scared of our teenagers indicative that we are failing our future generations.
