Publisher's Summary

The most popular guide ever about raising boys is back, significantly updated to help raise sons in a world that offers gender equality, respect, and a whole new kind of man but is still haunted by toxic masculinity.  

You’ll find cutting-edge science about the "physical fours", the "emotional eights", and how puberty can be turned into a positive time, along with hundreds of other practical tips for raising a son.

No two boys are alike, and you have to get to know your own unique boy. The idea that "if we understand them, we can help them" is what has made this guide so well-loved and trusted in more than a million homes. 

As one of Australia’s best-known psychologists for almost 30 years, Steve has introduced a generation of fathers into hands-on engagement with kids and helped thousands of mothers gain confidence in their ability to raise sons well. He has worked with schools in 17 countries, and 130,000 parents have heard his unforgettable live talks.

Great Resource

Loved book content but found it hard to get through. Prefer different narrator and would not listen to again because of this. May buy hard copy book in future.

Quite Good Book

Good story. No massive insights. Little spoiled right at the end with unnecessary political opinions
