    Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals use the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense. The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on- - replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people.

    I like Guttfeld on Fox, Red Eye is great. This book highlights exactly what is going on in America today. Gives great insight along with some great laughs.

    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.

    "Insightful but a little preachy"

    Where does Boys Adrift rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent book, subject matter topical, and performance was excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Boys Adrift?

    The information in general but I think what took me by surprise the most was the plastic bottle information and the environmental estrogens. I don't tend to buy into a lot of the reported "studies" but that seem to have a lot of merit.


    Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't kinda new to the audio book experience.


    If you could give Boys Adrift a new subtitle, what would it be?

    If you have a boy get this book!!!


    Any additional comments?

    It was an excellent book. I think it should be read by anybody who has boys or who works with boys (educators coaches etc.). I could see my nephew in a lot that was illustrated. The only issue I had was the critism on video games. I don't think its a cause of the lack of motivation but more of a reaction to the other issues that lead to lack of motivation. Which Dr. Sax did kind of touched on but didn't expound on. I have a neice who's very motivated, honor student, athlete and who loves to play Call of Duty. Her brother is a case study of lack of motivation but his playing is to fill in the times he can't figure out what to do. As an outsider watching the parenting of boys in families of relatives and friends I see so many mixed messages given to the young boys today. Their families want them to be boys full of energy and toughness and the schools don't tolerate the adage boys will be boys and punish them for it if it surfaces. I was very glad to see Dr Sax address the problem very well, and why I have already recommended the book to all the teachers and administrators I know.
