    So I FINALLY finished this book. It only took me what? a couple of months, which is shameful considering how easy this book is to read.

    The War Against Boys (Christina Hoff Sommers) is a look at how modern psychology and education are letting boys down, denying their very nature, and causing social problems. I found it to be full of common sense. It gives suggestions about how these problems can be addressed in our culture, without doing any injustice to girls. A very good book for all who are interested in children, education, or psychology.

    I've seen it in stores. I might have to go read it, especially since I've got myself a son now.
