The issue of the Boy Crisis has been on my radar for a couple of years now. I have read a couple of books over the last two years but this book goes a little more in depth into recent studies being done and the fact that our boys/men are being left behind. The book has well documented and researched statistics from many sources. That said, it is still a controversial subject. Our society and the educational environment has been working hard to get our girls raised up – and we are doing a wonderful job unfortunately our boys are now doing a lot worse than our girls ever were.
This book clearly and carefully gives the reader a strong basic understanding of the issues and can give you a lot of conversation starters. While it gives many examples of issues and problems facing boys it was not as extensive on the solutions. Many (maybe too many) examples are given for each of the subjects discussed, such as health, sports and monetary issues which at times makes the book feel a little more fiction(ish).
I believe this book along with a few others written about this subject would give everyone a complete understanding to what is happening to our boys and men.
