About the Book

**Description from Amazon: “THE WONDER OF BOYS is a provocative book that electrifies the debate over how this nation raises sons.”
— USA Today

In this insightful and practical book, Michael Gurian describes what boys need to become strong, responsible, sensitive men. Instead of encouraging us to stifle boys’ natural propensities for competition and aggression, Gurian offers effective and practical guidelines for channeling them. He shows how the evils boys are susceptible to, including gang activity, sexual misconduct, and crime, become necessary outlets when positive role models and adult support are not available.

Most important, Gurian explains what a boy really needs–a primary and an extended family, relationships with mentors, and intense support form his school and community–and details how we can provide these things for the boys we love.
