The one book every parent, teacher, coach, and youth pastor should read. This landmark book paints a compelling-and sobering-picture of what could happen to our society if we don't change the way we relate to today's teens and young adults.
Researched-based and solution-biased, it moves beyond sounding an alarm to outlining practical strategies to:
Guide "stuck" adolescents and at-risk boys to productive adulthood
Correct crippling parenting styles
Repair damage from (unintentional) lies we've told kids
Guide them toward real success instead of superficial "self-esteem"
Adopt education strategies that engage (instead of bore) an "i" generation
Pull youth out of their "digital" ghetto into the real world
Employ their strengths and work with their weaknesses on the job
