Publisher's Summary

Something scary is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, American boys are, on average, less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere 20 years ago. The gender gap in college attendance and graduation rates has widened dramatically. While Emily is working hard at school and getting A's, her brother, Justin, is goofing off. He's more concerned about getting to the next level in his video game than about finishing his homework.
Now, Dr. Leonard Sax delves into the scientific literature and draws on more than 20 years of clinical experience to explain why boys and young men are failing in school and disengaged at home. He shows how social, cultural, and biological factors have created an environment that is literally toxic to boys. He also presents practical solutions, sharing strategies that educators have found effective in reengaging these boys at school as well as handy tips for parents about everything from homework to video games to medication.

the author's points make sense, but...

the author's points make sense, but sometimes I feel they are embellished by opinion. I often felt I was being sold a book more than I was being educated. that said, I greatly appreciated the information in this book.
