Summary, etc.:
"How will I raise my son to be different? This question gripped Washington Post investigative reporter Emma Brown, who was at home nursing her six-week-old son when the #MeToo movement erupted. In search of an answer, Brown traveled around the country, through towns urban and rural, affluent and distressed. In the course of her reporting, she interviewed hundreds of people--educators, parents, coaches, researchers, men, and boys--to understand the challenges boys face and how to address them. What Brown uncovered was shocking: 23% of boys believe men should use violence to get respect; 22% of an incoming college freshman class said they had already committed sexual violence; 58% of young adults said they've never had a conversation with their parents about respect and care in sexual relationships. Men are 4 times more likely than women to die by suicide. Nearly 4 million men experience sexual violence each year. Emma Brown connects the dots between educators, researchers, policy makers and mental health professionals in this tour de force that upends everything we thought we knew about boys"--adapted from back cover.
