First published in 1995, Raising Boys was an instant bestseller and to date has sold over a million copies world wide.

Few books have stayed in the hearts and minds of parents everywhere as much as Raising Boys. Now in an increasingly complicated and nuanced world, raising boys to become emotionally strong, kind and resilient men is even more important and relevant. In response to calls from parents around the world Steve Biddulph has completely updated and revised his seminal work to include all the latest international information and advice for parents on all the key issues of today such as :
  • Gender
  • Brain and hormonal development including latest
  • findings on testosterone
  • Transgender/gay/sexuality development
  • Boys and crying
  • Boys and 'bad' behaviour
  • Reading and communication
  • Countering the effects of porn

Steve says:

"Right now, the world badly needs good men. Your boy can be one of those who grow up so much better, and help to heal the world. Thank you for joining the boy revolution. As the 21st century rolls on, it's badly needed. Enjoy your boy, love him well, and set him free to fly in his own special way."

Great reference book.


A great follow on read from the original Raising boys, particularly suited to today's issues.

Same Same


Having read the 1st edition i had expectations that the revised version wpuld have expanded on the previous, which it did not. New topic on hormones was what i wanted but i knew more than the book actually explained. For the first buyers a great read as was the first for me. But being a repeat reader I would have preferred aome more in depth discussions relating to certain topics and maybe arranged by particular age groups.



Boy's are born,men are made.


If you were fatherless if you are a father, a grandfather, uncle , teacher or gave any boys in your life. The world, your community and your family will be a better place for just reading this book.



Best book I've ever read
