about this book

With the bestselling book Raising Cain, Michael Thompson, Ph.D., at last broke the silence surrounding the emotional life of boys and spearheaded an important national debate.

With candid questions and detailed responses, Speaking of Boys covers important topics such as peer pressure, ADHD/ADD, and body image as well as traditional issues such as friendship, divorce, and college and career development. This informative book offers useful, practical advice to raising our boys into well- adjusted, responsible men in today’s society.

"With humor, insight, compassion, Thompson has written a parental guide.... Speaking of Boys is a celebration not only of the complex inner lives of boys, but a reaffirmation of what it means to take on the world's most important job: being a parent."—Boston Globe
