"really fascinating and very useful" (Piers Morgan)
"just as she brought both humour and experience to her best-selling book on the menopause, Murray takes the same approach in this invaluableguide. That's My Boy! covers everything you need to know about raising boys, from how to cope with hours spent ona rugby touchline, to how to tell when cuddles are welcome" (Waterston'es Books)
"an instructive and indispensible guide to bringing up happy and confident boys" (The Observer)
"A well written, humourous and ironic book. A must for parents with boys" (BBC Parenting)
"a persuasive and eminently readable blend of cultural analysis and anecdotal evidence, examining society's attitudes towards boys and the gender assumptions that we all sometimes make. She doesn't shy away from the big issues, addressing the thorny issues of education, fightin, sexuality and father-son relationships with a forthright approach and a wry good humour. A fascinating read of you've got (or are expecting) boys of your own." (Junior Pregnancy & Birth)

Jenni writes in a very readable, amusing manner, giving lots of advice without sounding presumptious. Yes, there are lots of challenges out there but she gives you 100% confidence that it is possible to nurture the kind of well-balanced, confident but caring male you always wished you would meet. She uses many examples from other parents of sons to give practical solutions to situations, and as these are often from well-known "names", this adds to the reality and interest. Jenni tackles a number of topics head on, however difficult and embarrassing they may be to any of the parties concerned. She leaves you with the feeling that you may not be able to change the world but this book will help you on the road to filling it with better balanced, all round young men.
I found this book far more helpful and reassuring than most of the books I had read before having young Peter. Oh and I now know how much work I need to do on the Dad - if only he would read the book too!
I bought this book after the birth of our first son, and now after the arrival of our second will be going back to it again. Too often the message of books about boys is how to deal with difficulties. This book is a celebration of boys, which makes it quite unique in my experience.
