Sample Book Insights:

#1 I spoke to a parents’ group in Calgary, Alberta, in March 2004. The presentation was about the differences between how girls and boys learn, play, and are motivated. The questions afterward were difficult.

#2 I’ve spoken at more than 260 venues around the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, England, and Scotland about why boys are having problems connecting with school. Some parents blame the school, video games, or society.

#3 The problem of boys disengaging from school and the American dream is widespread. It affects every variety of community: urban, suburban, and rural; white, black, Asian, and Hispanic. The end result is that more young men are not going to college, and those who do aren’t getting very far.

#4 The hostility many boys have toward school is new. It is not just limited to low-income black and Latino boys, but also white and Asian boys in affluent suburbs. They see school as a bore, a waste of time, and a prison sentence.
