Some brief overview of this book

Michael Gurians blockbuster bestseller The Wonder of Boys is the bible for mothers, fathers, and educators on how to understand and raise boys. It has sold over 400,000 copies, been translated into 17 languages, and sells over 25,000 every year, which is more than any other book on boys in history. To follow up on this first book, which launched the boys movement, he has now written this revolutionary new book which confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a boys crisis.Here are the facts:

Boys today are simply not learning as well as girls

Boys receive 70% of the Ds and Fs given all students

Boys cause 90% of classroom discipline problems

80% of all high school dropouts are boys

Millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other mind-bending control drugs

Only 40% of college students are boys

And three out of four learning disabled students are boys

So what can we do?

Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to.

Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys brains actually work and how they can learn very well if theyre properly taught.

Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.
