    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.

    of how US education has failed our sons. Relating stories and referring to well-documented studies that (sadly) reflect what I've personally witnessed in the young men in my life, it makes me angry to see the many ways the "one-size-fits-all" approach to so-called 'standardized' education has failed a nation of young men, among many other factors. A fascinating and disturbing read for anyone who cares about our new generation of men (and women) and the challenges they now face. It may already be too late for my own son, although I certainly plan to avail myself of Dr. Sax's helpful advice to what degree I can, even so.
