Gurian explains the needs of boys through stories that we all know, by explaining how other cultures care for their boys, and through the use of scientific evidence. Part I had me enthralled in how men's brains are physiologically different from women's. I now not only have a better understanding of how to raise my son but also of why my husband deals with things so much differently than I do. I haven't gotten to Part III which explains HOW to raise boys, but the background information leading up to that is really interesting... I usually skip the background portions of non-fiction books, but this has me hooked!
I highly recommend this book for all parents, community leaders, teachers, and school administrators. If we all read this book we could have a much better world for all of our children, not just our boys.
