Jump-Starting Boys: Help Your Reluctant Learner Find Success in School and Life (Viva Editions 2013), by Pam Withers and Cynthia Gill, has been featured as an indispensable guide for the parents of boys. Savings for Sanity, a parenting blog, said, "This book makes things like school and life seem much easier for a parent and a teen to conquer," and that she was surprised by the number of questions this one book had answered.
Another popular mothering blog, Griffin's Honey, praised the book effusively: "I will be able to use this book over and over as a reference point for advice. I recommend this to all parents of boys, especially moms."
Jump-Starting Boys is also available as an audiobook.
