Raising Boys : Why Boys Are Different-And How to Help Them Become Happy and Well-Balanced Men
by Steve Biddulph

There are many good books on boys coming out now. Raising Boys aims to be the simplest to read for busy parents, also aims to inspire, and be solution oriented. I tried to build in everything that seems to work with boys that mothers and fathers repeatedly told me as I lectured around the world.

Australians like their books with humour, down to earth, and with some soul. This book made publishing history here - the first parenting book to go straight to number one bestseller and it stayed there for months. Now in the U.S. and U.K I hope you like it and it helps bring up a new kind of man for the 21st century in large enough numbers to make a difference.

Fathering Daughters : Reflections by Men
by Dewitt Henry (Editor), James Alan McPherson (Editor)

Literally hundreds of books cast light on the mother-daughter bond, but the relationship between a girl and her other parent remains stubbornly hidden in shadow. The strikingly lucent essays in Fathering Daughters do their best to repair that imbalance. There's Rodger Kamentz, who prefers speaking English straight up rather than babbling baby talk at his infant Anya--"Why offer her ears a blurry target?"--and Rick Bass, who worries about tweaking his daughters' political consciousness too hard. You want your daughters to loathe injustice, he says, but do you want them to burn as erratically and out-of-control as you do--with that much bitterness? Psychiatrist Samuel Shem observes American gender differences with some alarm as his 3-year-old daughter anxiously considers what to wear before a play date where the boy will snub her attempts to connect. Darker tales surface from Gary Soto, drowning in depression, and William Petersen, on a vacation with a daughter dying of leukemia. A few essays are irritatingly narcissistic, but the best showcase some tremendous writers capturing murmurs that swell to a roar as they echo back from our own lives. --Francesca Coltrera

Reaching Up for Manhood : Transforming the Lives of Boys in America
by Geoffrey Canada

Canada (Fist Stick Knife Gun, 1995) obviously knows what he is talking about when it comes to young men in the inner city. Raised in the South Bronx, he is now president of the Rheedlen Centers for Children and Families, an organization employing and guiding urban kids, and ``father'' to four boys he thinks of as sons beyond his own son and stepson.
  -  From Kirkus Reviews , November 15, 1997
