     Diagnosing the Destruction of Young Men is the answer that has been highly anticipated by parents, educators, and adults who possess a heart for the success of young men. Chris Cannon skillfully addresses how and why young men are searching for death to get out of life, how confused boys turn into adult criminals, the effects parents have on males, why young men use sex to prove their manhood and much more. This masterpiece also addresses what factors drive young men to suicide, as well as, what motivates them to commit homicides. The media is also displayed as strategically pulling back their minds and stirring up their imagination becoming the father that many of them long to have; which ultimately results in self-destruction. It also points out how gangs are replacing parents at an alarming rate because they provide what many parents don't such as structure, discipline, and rules. He doesn't just focus on the problems, but also gives solutions to them. After reading this book readers are guaranteed to have a different perspective concerning young men.
