Books About Boys

I've asked at TheWell Trained Mind boards for book recommendations about educating boys. Here's what I've compiled so far:

  1. The Trouble With Boys
  2. Raising Cain
  3. The War Against Boys (gotta love the subtitle: how misguided feminism is harming our young men)
  4. Boys Adrift* (Leonard Sax)
  5. The Last Child in the Woods* (about "nature-science deprived kids)
  6. Michael Gurian's books -- "The Wonder of Boys," "The Minds of Boys," "What Stories Does My Son Need? : A Guide to Books and Movies That Build Character in Boys*".
  7. Leonard Sax's Why gender matters : what parents and teachers need to know about the emerging science of sex differences

The italic titles are ones my local public library has (yea). *-ed books I'll interlibrary loan.
