Summary
In this updated version of his bestseller, Sax delves into scientific literature and draws on his clinical experience to propose an entirely original view of why boys and young men are continuing to fail in school and at home. He argues that a combination of social, cultural, and biological factors is creating an environment that is literally toxic to boys, ranging from environmental estrogens to the over-prescription of ADHD drugs
