The Wonder of Boys discusses ideas for how to raise boys into men, which is an incredibly worthy topic. However, the book is heavy on rhetoric, and light on actual ideas for implementation. Furthermore, a divorced parent would feel pretty bashed by this book. Gurian is incredibly anti-divorce, which is great in theory, but not so cut and dry in real life. That pretty much sums up this book - great theories, but that's not enough when we are dealing with the nitty gritty of raising boys. With that said, there are a few kernels worth gleaning from this book that I find useful in raising my 5 sons.
