As my wife and I listened to this book, I heard Dr. Sax describe our son exactly. We gained enough good insights into him that we listened a second time and had him listen with us. Since then, I've recommended this book to several friends in similar situations.
My wife, a first grade elementary teacher, echoed many of the same observations made in this book.
Definitely worth listening to if you are a parent with a boy or you work with kids on a regular basis.
Fascinating, informative, utterly disturbing. This book should be required reading for all parents of boys! Sadly, I see my own son (now 22) in this book. I wish I'd had this information years ago!!
If you have an interest in successful children, in this case boys, this a must.
It takes us into their world, their minds, their needs as youngsters so we can produce better adults.
If you are looking for some insight into the little boy of your life, this I highly recomment.
This book reviews what is happening to young men (in the US and around the world) who "fail to launch." It is a disturbing look at the decline in men who are engaged in starting their lives as adults. Individuals with sons or grandsons will gain insight. People simply interested in what is taking place sociologically to this group will be rewarded.
