Since its publication in 1997, Raising Boys has been an outstanding success, selling over 250 000 copies in Australia and New Zealand and being translated into nine languages.
Most importantly it has resulted in a new awareness of the differences between boys and girls (something appreciated by every parent!) in the areas of brain development, behaviour, learning and family relationships.
In Raising Boys, Steve Biddulph brings his humour, honesty and practical knowledge of families to the vital task of raising our sons.
This abridged version of Raising Boys is read by Steve Biddulph and has been especially adapted by him for audio.
The two cassettes give nearly three hours of listening pleasure.
