Product description


The Boy Crisis brilliantly explores the challenges facing our sons-and everyone. The sections on ADHD, the role of mothering and fathering, and developing boys' health intelligence are priceless and life changing.

-- "Suzanne Somers, actress and New York Times bestselling author"

A must-read for anyone who cares about our boys, our schools, our culture, and the future of our country.

-- "Helen Smith, PhD, author of Men on Strike "

Farrell and Gray delve deep into the systematic and cultural challenges faced by white, heterosexual males in American culture and its toxic effect on their masculinity. Raspy and aged, Farrell's voice can be enjoyable to listen to...his energy and emphasis enliven the text as it generates a sense of personal investment by Farrell himself. At the audiobook's core, the authors aim to help parents develop more meaningful emotional connections with boys in order to produce healthy and more well-rounded men. Between Farrell's performance and the authors' ideas, this audiobook turns the trappings of masculinity into less formidable hurdles for parents and their boys to overcome.

-- "AudioFile"

Dr. Warren Farrell shines his searchlight on the 'boy problem with no name' in this totally absorbing, astonishing, and masterful book. Best of all, he offers parents and educators straightforward solutions with a heart full of compassion.

-- "Gail Sheehy, #1 New York Times bestselling author "

The Boy Crisis will deepen your awareness and help you guide your son through the many dilemmas and ordeals that attend the journey from boyhood to manhood. Profoundly helpful.

-- "Sam Keen, New York Times bestselling author"

It would be impossible to read this book and not become a better parent, teacher, or thought leader.

-- "Marci Shimoff, author of Love for No Reason"

Presents a long overdue vision of boys' self-worth, sense of purpose, and idea of heroism that will leave our boys happier, healthier, and better prepared to sustain love.

-- "Dr. Richard A. Warshak, author of Divorce Poison"

Product Description

What is the boy crisis? 

It’s a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science. 

It’s a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women. 

It’s a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison. 

It’s a crisis of purpose. Boys’ old sense of purpose—being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner—are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a “purpose void,” feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.

So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.
