The Minds of Boys Book Excerpt:

Michael Gurian's blockbuster bestseller The Wonder of Boys is the bible for mothers, fathers, and educators on how to understand and raise boys. It has sold over 400,000 copies, been translated into 17 languages, and sells over 25,000 every year, which is more than any other book on boys in history. To follow up on this first book, which launched the boy's movement, he has now written this revolutionary new book which confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a "boy's crisis". Here are the facts: Boys today are simply not learning as well as girls Boys receive 70% of the Ds and Fs given all students Boys cause 90% of classroom discipline problems 80% of all high school dropouts are boys Millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other mind-bending control drugs Only 40% of college students are boys And three out of four learning disabled students are boys So what can we do? Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to. Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught. Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.

Boy Book Excerpt:

To escape a brutal life on the Liverpool docks, a boy runs away to sea Arthur Fearon is nearly thirteen, and in the eyes of the law, that makes him a man. He wants to study to become a chemist, but his family cannot afford for him to continue school. The thought of a life working the docks makes Fearon break down in front of his classmates, but there is no time to cry. This boy has to get to work. The docks are hellish, and Fearon’s first day is his last. He hops a steamer to Alexandria, looking for a better life on the sea, but everywhere he goes, he finds cruelty, vice, and the crushing weight of adulthood. He will not be a man for long. The subject of an infamous 1930s obscenity trial, this is the original, unexpurgated text of James Hanley’s landmark novel: an unflinching examination of child labor and a timeless tale of adulthood gained too soon.

So You Want to Raise a Boy Book Excerpt:

In writing this book, Dr. Skousen takes considerable comfort from the fact that there are no “experts” on the subject of raising boys. He comes about as close as anyone, since he is the father of five sons and three daughters—and the grandfather of fifty grandchildren. In this book is his description of “boyhood” from birth to the age of twenty-one, a portrait of physical and emotional development, year by year, an outline of behavior patterns and problems and how parents should react to them. He considers such matters as the boy’s relation to the family, adjusting to school, stuttering, telling tales, and even such everyday problems as getting a boy to clean up his room or take a bath. Inevitably there will be difficult boys and with this in mind Dr. Skousen gives helpful and knowledgeable advice to parents about alcohol, drugs, and suggested preventative measures. Without preaching and with a fine sense of humor and good common sense, Dr. Skousen has compiled a concrete guide to raising non-delinquent boys who are happy and well-adjusted. This eBook includes the original index, illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

Emigration Nation Vocation Book Excerpt:

Carter F. Hanson's Emigration, Notion, Vocation is a careful synthesis of a too-neglected subject, While critics have long noted the English emigrant as ubiquitous presence in early Canadian texts, apart from Susanna Moodie and Catherine Parr Traill, that presence has not been explained. Hanson has done so very well here, and he writes with precision, understanding, and imaginative grasp. This is a book for anyone interested in Canadian writing.-Robert Thacker, author of The Great Prairie Fact and Literary Imagination What I admire most in this study is its diligent pursuit of the "cultural dynamics" of English emigration to colonial Canada in the nineteenth century. Carefully analyzing the language and ideology of Victorian England, particularly the prevailing and compelling discourses on work, middle-class identity, and "landed vocation," Hanson provides astute readings of well-known texts by writers like Catharine Parr Traill and Susanna Moodie and of many now-overlooked books by authors such as Frederick DelaFosse, John Mackie, R.E.W. Goodridge, and Mrs. H.B. King. Bringing understanding and empathy to his readings of individual texts and the evolution of Canada over the century, he enables the reader to catch the tension between economic self-interest and a commitment to the grand imperial design that underpinned so much thinking about Canada before the twentieth century.-Michael Peterman, Professor Emeritus, Trent University
