BOYS ADRIFT The Five Factors Driving the Growing Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men

by | Read by Malcolm Hillgartner

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Many boys today take at least one psychiatric medication. Dr. Sax addresses this issue and many others relating to how children's environments affect their maturation. Narrator Malcolm Hillgartner manages to sound like a doctor. His strong, masculine voice gives out lots of advice about attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), video games, neural development, and environmental estrogens. He successfully plays the role of a family physician and trained psychologist speaking to concerned parents. During clinical interviews, Hillgartner changes his voice ever so slightly to differentiate between the players, but without ever approaching theatrics. After listening to this production, anyone of any background will feel more informed about what's happening to modern children growing up in an age of violence, drugs, and body piercings.
