"[Gives] us what we need to raise strong, responsible, and sensitive men." (John Gray)
"[For] every parent and every young man old enough to comprehend its wisdom." (Beverly Engel)
I see my boys struggling to be successful at school and have found this book to be very helpful by providing a framework for giving them what they need to feel good about themselves and feel good about life in general. Raising children isn't just having them, feeding them and making sure they get to school - it's a full time commitment if you want them to have rich lives and be happy with the expectations society and our Creator has for them and for the human race to thrive in general. If you believe this and are looking to understand what is needed to develop your son to fulfill his role in life, then this is a book for you.

I can agree with most of what is taught in the book with the exception of the idea that masturbation is harmless and necessary. I don't believe in shaming a boy if he does it but would encourage him to not. Self control is what should be taught.
Thank you for these insights. Now I feel prepared to raise a boy. Before reading this I felt like I was trying to parent an alien.
Now more than ever w all the sexual misconduct allegations we need to focus on boys and the role males play in the raising of boys to be well balanced men. From home to school to media Mr Gurian gives us a road map to help us in the incredible journey.
Great book but it leaves you with so many questions I felt like I didn't come away with a good sense of how to implement what the author was saying. The author is the narrator and he did a wonderful job. This has completely sparked my interest and I will be continuing on with his other books!
