Raising the Aspirations of Underachieving Boys
Author: Dr. James S. Brown MA MEd EdD
Pubpsher: Xlibris Corporation
RESCUING OUR UNDERACHIEVING SONS is a book written for school administrators, teachers, and parents of very young or school-age sons. This book offers an analysis of one of the really serious issues faced by parents, teachers and all of society, that of the underachievement of boys in the education system. Extensively documented, the book examines how the education system contributes to the underachievement of boys, and the factors which result in many boys failing in school. Meticulous research, combined with personal insights gained by Dr. Brown in his 40 years in education in Canada and the United Kingdom results in an interesting narrative that challenges those with responsibility for helping all children to achieve their full potential.
Much writing on men in the field of gender studies tends to focus unduly, almost exclusively, on portraying men as villains and women as victims in a moral bi-polar paradigm. Re-Thinking Men reverses the proclivity which ignores not only the positive contributions of men to society, but also the male victims of life including the homeless, the incarcerated, the victims of homicide, suicide, accidents, war and the draft, and sexism, as well as those affected by the failures of the health, education, political and justice systems. Proceeding from a radically different perspective in seeking a more positive, balanced and inclusive view of men (and women), this book presents three contrasting paradigms of men as Heroes, Villains and Victims. With the development of a comparative and revised gender perspective drawing on US, Canadian and UK sources, this book will be of interest to scholars across a range of social sciences.

When How to Succeed in Business Without a Penis was released, it became an instant best-seller for a huge reason: it revealed insightful differing business styles men and women practice-and actionable techniques each can learn from the other. Sun Tzu in The Art of War says: " in the wise leader's plans, considerations of advantage and of disadvantage will be blended together." Salmansohn blends. First, she exposes ten male advantages (some to be learned, some to be spurned). Next, she reveals advantages and disadvantages of female attributes. And Salmansohn offers her actionable advice with her trademark irreverent humor-a humor which John Stewart has gone on record as appreciating, saying, "Salmansohn has the soul of a stand-up comic." Salmansohn also teaches how to find "Career Waldos" (hidden career goals) and keep them firm with exercises to develop "wills of steel," the most crucial muscles for climbing to the top of the corporate ladder. Since this best-selling release, Salmansohn has penned over 20 more books including How to be Happy, Dammit, and Ballsy. Visit her at www.notsalmon.com
