"Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, 'Saving Our Sons: A Parent's Guide to Preparing Boys for Success' is thoroughly 'user friendly' in tone and practical in application for the non-specialist general reader. While very highly recommended, especially for community and academic library Parenting instructional reference collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that 'Saving Our Sons' is also available in a Kindle format." -- Midwest Book Review

Lessor explains The Quest Project, a once-a-week ten-week schedule of meetings to help a boy in a group/community setting to uncover his pain, face it and heal from it. The very first project included a group of eight troubled boys, who ranged in age from sixteen to eighteen years old. It grew to include activities for the Mom and son to work on outside of the sessions in an effort to better understand each other's perspective and point of view.
Eight boys and their families agreed to have their stories shared in the second half of the book. These stories of survival and success are inspiring and hopeful.
I received a copy to review.
I highly recommend that this book be made available to single mothers, in high school guidance offices, and in doctor's offices. The guidelines for when to seek help are invaluable for a mother in the trenches.
Purchase a copy and gift it to a single mother of an adolescent boy, you will be doing both of them and society a huge favor.
He provides great insights into the root of the behaviors, and describes treatments that offer real help without the dangers of over-medication, or confusing side effects. If you are seeking help for your son then THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.
