"Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens pull the pieces together in The Minds of Boys, including the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive needs of boys. This is a must-read for educators from preschool through young adulthood and for any parent or grandparent who is raising a boy. This book is well researched, offering concrete ways to help our boys develop and flourish in and out of school."
—Dr. Paul D. Slocumb, author, Hear Our Cry: Boys in Crisis

"The Minds of Boys is an excellent read. I found it enlightening not only as a neuroscientist but also as the mother of a young boy. It has absolutely changed the way that I think about boys (and men) and the ways in which they express their enthusiasm for life."
—Tracey J. Shors, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Center for Collaborative Neuroscience, Rutgers University

    Excellent read for parents and teachers!

    This book is fantastic, especially for women who have a lot of interactions with boys of any age. (I say women because men already have at least SOME expertise on the minds of boys. Many men will see themselves in this book, and will certainly get a lot out of it as well, as it offers explanations for the experience of being a boy) I am a special ed teacher at a private school for kids with LD/ADHD. About 90% of my students are boys. I am a female who has had no history of any sort of learning problems. Reading this book really opened my eyes to the kinds of troubles that boys face in today's schools, whether or not they have a learning disability or an attention problem. Although this book acknowleges the reality of LD and ADHD, it also points out how so many of our boys fail because of how poorly they 'fit' into the educational system. The book postulates that our schools are failing our boys. Many of the observations and research contained in the book will be immediately recognized by anyone who knows any boys in their life. Many of the teachers and parents at my school participated in a book study of this book. We all came out of it with a desire to change things at our school. We found many changes, some simple and some more involved, that we can make that will help us provide a better education for our boys. Another nice thing about the book is that it contains many useful and practical suggestions. I strongly recommend this book to all teachers and parents of boys!

    children are the nursery of future, culturing and nurturing them to face the challenges of the wired and wireless world is crucial for any country, the best practises should be adopted, the birth of a child is an angel of god but then till death what happens? opportunities to learn, to relearn must be equal train the teachers, is e learning a good option as talented teachers are languishing in another part of globe?
