Bestselling authors Warren Farrell and John Gray (Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) examine the issues plaguing young males and provide solutions for raising boys to grow up healthy and productive members of society, benefiting us all.

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 Many bright boys are experiencing a 'purpose void,' feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.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.

'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 'Drs. Farrell and Gray frighten and enlighten us in their brilliant analysis, insights, wisdom, and practical solutions to The Boy Crisis...essential reading for every parent, teacher, and policy-maker.' -Philip Zimbardo, PhD, former president of the American Psychological Association and Stanford University professor 'It would be impossible to read this book and not become a better parent, teacher, or thought leader.' - Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times bestselling author 'What The Feminine Mystique did for girls and women, The Boy Crisis does for boys and men. An eloquently written, compelling tour de force, The Boy Crisis 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 'Arresting, alarming, and impeccably researched, The Boy Crisis is a must-read for every parent, educator, and policymaker who cares about the future of boys and girls.' - Michael G. Thompson, PhD, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Raising Cain
