Fully onethird of men ages 2234 are still living at home with their parentsabout a 100 percent increase in the past twenty years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax 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 overprescription of ADHD drugs. And he presents practical solutionsfrom new ways of controlling boys' use of video games, to innovative education reforms.
