LOST BOYS Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them

by | Read by Cotter Smith

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

A tide of fatal shootings is sweeping our country. In LOST BOYS, Garbarino takes a clear, compassionate look at violent boys, draws conclusions about how they came to be that way and suggests what we, as a society, can do to identify and help them. The book opens with Garbarino personally introducing himself and offering a moving testimony relating to the lost boys he describes. His voice is quiet, professional and caring. He speaks about himself and about boys who commit murder and mayhem at places like Columbine High School. The remainder of the book is read clearly, slowly and calmly by Cotter Smith. A great deal of thought went into the abridgment and production of the book. The publishers have chosen to have a female voice speak the chapter headings, which is a helpful organizational tool. All in all, this is an excellent, timely production that will be of interest to parents, educators and citizens. L.R.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
