In addition, Gurian furnishes a list of the fifty top books and films that will help stimulate moral growth in boys and young men.For parents and teachers who fear that our society has lost much of its moral and ethical underpinnings, The Good Son serves as a welcome guidepost. It is destined to become one of the premier books on parenting and moral life.
