This book came highly recommended to me! I read it within a week. In fact, it was my exercise companion (other than the machine). I marked many pages and made note of key ideas about why boys struggle in most of our schools/classrooms. One part that glued a picture in my mind was when the author asked to take a look at the arrangement of the classroom during Morning Meeting/Calendar- where are most of the boys? (my answer and is- many are in the back or on the outside of the "bunch of grapes") He definitely made me think about what occurs in my own classroom! Please check it out!
