“At this very moment, through no fault of their own, our boys are caught in the vortex of four powerful, insidious, often invisible forces which conspire to rob them of their future.”

We medicate, discipline, suspend, and expel our boys from school at quadruple the rate of girls. We let double the number of boys drop out of high school than girls, and of those boys who do graduate, they are far more likely than their sisters to be illiterate, to fail to go to college, or to drop out of college if they do go.

Swagger is a wake-up call for parents about the real world our boys inhabit right now, but it offers solutions as well. From how to teach your boy humility (the swagger antivenom), to “making your home a reading mecca,” creating an expectation of college graduation, and how to teach your boy to be critical of the media onslaught in his life, this book is also packed with research-proven, parent-tested, teacher-approved practical solutions, delivered in the author’s trademark no-nonsense, often humorous, take-charge voice.

    " A very compelling and eye opening book. All people in America should read this (if they can even read - as one in four boys graduating high school cannot). Understanding what is in this book, and taking action could very well be the key to heading off the economic collapse of our great nation. "

    " Lisa Bloom returns with a fantastic look for parents and adults into male youth culture. More than a simple how-to guide, Bloom mixes sociological knowledge with historical expertise to trace troubling trends in male pattern behavior and give concerned adults tools to address the challenges faced by the boys they love.
