What is the boy crisis?

It’s a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science.

It’s a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women.

It’s a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison.

It’s a crisis of purpose. Boys old sense of purpose—being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner—are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a purpose void, feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.

So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.

“As an activist in the women’s movement, I’m proud of expanding life choices for our daughters. But no one did the same for our sons—until now. Dr. Warren Farrell shines his searchlight on the ‘boy problem with no name’ in this totally absorbing, astonishing, and masterful book. Best of all, he offers parents and educators straightforward solutions with a heart full of compassion.” Gail Sheehy, author of Understanding Men’s Passages 

The Boy Crisis is the most important book of the 21st century. Farrell and Gray are absolutely brilliant. Their decades of experience addressing gender issues, and meticulous research, shines light on why our sons are failing, and why we live in a world of increasing violence. More important, they offer solutions that we can all unite behind. If you care about the very survival of humankind, you must read this book.” —Jed Diamond, author of The Irritable Male Syndrome
