Publisher's Summary

Boys and their communities are challenged today in ways they have not been before. Dr. Michael Gurian has studied and served children and their families for 30 years. His The Wonder of Boys (1996) is credited with sparking the "boys’ movement". In Saving Our Sons, he features the latest research in male emotional intelligence, male motivation development, neurotoxicity and the male brain, and electronics and video game use. 

Linking practical solutions with strategic new policies based on 20 years of field work through the Gurian Institute, Dr. Gurian provides a seven-stage model for the journey to manhood in the new millennium. Moving effortlessly between the practical and the political, Dr. Gurian also tackles social and cultural issues facing our sons. 

Two of the audiobook’s chapters provide listeners with successful ways to challenge governmental and academic institutions, as well as the media, to see boys fully and fairly. In its eight chapters, Saving Our Sons is a unique combination of powerful writing, new research, practical strategies, and passionate social advocacy that helps our nation act on behalf of boys and young men - one home, one school, and one community at a time.
