At the time of Michael Thompson's talk in 2007, the psychologist and author had been coming to the 92nd Street Y for nearly a decade to educate audiences and run community workshops. He also grew up in the same Upper East Side neighborhood that has hosted the Y since 1874.
Thompson has written nine books to date, including the best-selling Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Lives of Boys. He is personable and informative while explaining why American boys tend to underachieve. He naturally engages with a live audience as well as with a television camera, a quality which has earned him appearances on numerous national television programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show and 60 Minutes.
