    This sounds awesome....wish I had time!

    As I glanced over the bio on the book and the reader comments I pondered actually purchasing it! Then it hit me, I'll use the $13+ and get my fishing license and spend this weekend with my son just seeing what's happening with him and his life. It's been awhile and I'm looking forward to it. Thanks for the book...just the same :)

    Excellent book

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was quite an eye opener for me as a woman raising a son. It has profoundly effected my decisions in his upbringing and how I have related to him at different ages. I recommend this book, particularly to mothers.

    more from this reviewer

    A Theoretical, Sociological Book

    Although I appreciate Mr. Gurian's efforts and contributions, I did not find this book to be that useful for what to do now, today, with this challenging 7 year-old. It was written in the 90's and is interesting as a response as we came from "women's lib", but I found I lost interest as he opined extensively on primative cultures, the political landscape, and the three sets of families--we have enough challenge right here, right today, and need practical help and specific suggestions as to how to best negotiate the bumpy terrain of this second decade of the 21st century. I'll let him be a boy and know that he is different, but still will struggle for solutions to very mundane but daily problems.

    education in america

    america produces the best brains,it has the best institutions for higher learning, the best academia in the world in diverse fields. why schools have not shaped up? children are the nursery of future,teach the teachers, reward them well, since interactive with screen is current best choice for learning. in e-world,the best practises of other countries to be adopted and adapted, india has huge reservoir of excellent teachers in schools, no wonder india excels in higher fields of engineering and is rushing to states for learning. may be outsourcing to india will be best option to improve quality and create the best for future paddy

    Boys should be boys, not little men!

    This book is correct. Boys need to be boys! And that they are different than girls yet that we still need to show them that compassion and emotions are things that everyone needs and needs to show! I strongly suggest this book.

    Just Like Me

    As I read the book and examined my own upbringing I saw that this book was dead on. As a father, I deeply realize my influence on my sons. I want my boys to be exceptional husbands, fathers and citizens and it wont happen if I dont do my part.

    Boys ARE different fro mGirls

    This book does a great job of pointing out that there are definitive differences in biology between the sexes and it is these differences that may lead to certain behaviors in boys. We all know this to be true, but there are many out there who refuse to belive it. Why would we have evolved into two sexes if there were no differences between them! Once we accept the notion that 'boys will be boys', we can look for ways to help channel their behaviors into positive things. Anyone who read this book and doesn't get that message is reading betwen the lines way too much.
