In THE MINDS OF BOYS: Saving Our Sons from Falling Behind in School and Life (Jossey-Bass/Wiley; March 2007; $15.95/Paper), blockbuster bestselling author Michael Gurian and educator Kathy Stevens reveal the reasons boys today are having more difficulty learning than girls, and offer proven strategies for parents and educators in order to help them better teach and empower young males. This revolutionary book, now if paperback, confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a "boy's crisis."

Gurian and Stevens draw on social philosophy, neuro-biology, case studies, and their own experiences in the field, to explore how boys’ brains develop, function, and learn. From the earliest bonding between babies and parents, to the speed at which memory and verbal centers develop, gender plays a role at each stage of life. Boys have specific learning needs, and specific emotional and intellectual patterns by which they seek life-success. Who a boy is, from the inside out, affects how he relates to parents and teachers. THE MINDS OF BOYS calls on everyone who cares for boys to see the signals they are sending, and create families and schools that fully serve these young men.
