But this is real life, and that being said, Swagger is a MUST-READ for every parent, educator and legislator in this country.

“A lot of parenting advie stresses me out so I love when someone smart declares that the thing to do to help our kids is read more. Last year Lisa Bloom’s book Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World came out and started a nationwide conversation about how talk to our little girls. Bloom’s new book is out and now she’s telling us that our boys are in trouble too.” - Oprah.com

“In this rapidly changing environment, knowledge is power. Swagger empowers parents and anyone who cares about boys to get real about the culture we live in, and gives us the tools to do right by our sons.” – Examiner.com
