A brilliant book and I would say required reading for any parent of a boy. It is a great book to dip in and out of as your child/grandchild/nephew or whatever reaches different stages. My little boy is 4 and hopefully it will continue to give me much needed information and ideas.
A must for any parent.

Good book, I haven't finished reading it, but I have already learned some things I wasn't aware of before. It gives a good overview and comparison of differences or no differences in certain ages of the genders which is very helpful.

Provided a short and insightful commentary on what boys need at different stages of their lives. Quick and easy to read as well

interesting, makes you think more about your actions towards boys, and your ideas of what boys are and should be like

This book is ok... certainly not ground-breaking, and not as analytical of the research as I would have expected for the price - very 'sound-bitey' (?aka american). It's the kind of book you might give to new and relatively niave parents - and in this circumstance, this is a very good book.
However, I find some of the author's personal views quite disconserting, e.g.
"A dad who is close to his daughter is so good for her, because he becomes the yardstick by which he measures boys. If she knows from you that she is interesting, intelligent and worthwhile, boys have to measure up to this - which eliminates 80 percent of them right off the bat! This has to be a good investment!"
Really???
Surely the author's attitude to boys is up for speculation here...
It creates an all-american stereo-type in my head of 'daddy's girls'; all too perfect and prissy to be tarnished by the hormonal drive of grubby little boys who after all are all 'slugs & snails' and there's nothing you can do about that, no matter how much we improve their lot.
Don't get me wrong, I agree entirely with the main ethos of this book, but I would have liked more science and less anecdotal musing.

Bought for my son for his children, only wish I had had a copy when he was in his teens.
