Before I read this book I did not know what the problem was with the America youth today. After I read this book I now had a clear view of the problem affecting children today. Steinberg and his team did an amazing job on this book and they touch on many subjects that you do not hear about. I recommend this book to every teacher, parent, students,and our mayors,governors, etc. who do not no what the real problem is today affecting our schools
