This book was a good general, run of the mill book about raising boys. However, I had a major problem with the author, I didn't trust him. Rick Johnson is not a religious leader, a teacher, a counselor, or any other professional occupation that has studied or experienced lots of interaction with boys. While he WAS a boy himself and IS a father now, and works with other men, I found myself constantly questioning his credentials. The book didn't have alot of statistics or studies to back up his advice. In fact, Rick Johnson mostly gave personal examples (which I enjoyed) and quoted other people.

So now, I don't feel I am much better off having read this book because in the back of my mind I am uncertain of all of his advice. There were some ideas and examples that struck a chord in me and I plan on implementing. However, the rest of the book probably won't help me.
