    Something scary is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, they are less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere 20 years ago. Fully one-third of men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents, about a 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax presents practical solutions.

    "Interesting and Compelling"

    Story

    I loved the early part of this book with the research on how boys are physiologically different than a couple of generations ago. Something is going on and the author has a lot of research to back his claims. That part is extremely compelling. The author gives 5 reasons why he feels that boys are less motivated than they were in the past. He looks to national issues, what we ingest, chemicals we are around, medications, cultural issues, and more. The last portion of the book is more of a how-to and what you can do to prevent this from happening to your son or how to snap him out of it. I'm going to read his book about girls next.
