This is a thoughtful and valuable book which deals with opening up dialogues with boys from preadolescence (9-11 years), early adolescence (12-14 years), to late adolescence (15-18 years). The author, an educator from Austria, states his credentials “come from being a father whose failure has filled these pages with painful lessons. I have also had the pleasure of witnessing inspirational parenting by others and have listened to conversations that have stimulated and transformed a boy” (p. 2). Chapter titles include: Identity, Achievement, Sex, Money, and Health.
