A book to reassure the young boy and his family that to remain intact as nature intended is the BEST way. He has kept what many other boys have lost—a foreskin to protect the end of his penis and keept it sensitive. In early childhood this little hood should be left alone by adults. Further reading and resources for parents are included.

From the Publisher:

Circumcision is the only surgical procedure where the decision to operate is made solely by parents who know little about the structure and function of the normal penis. In simple words and photos this book explains these facts. The Joy of Being a Boy will educate families who may be blindly following tradition or believing such medical fallacies that surgery is necessary for hygiene and disease prevention. Parents will gain the courage to "Just say NO", and to assert that the infant male body has perfect and necessary design.

From the Author:

When we published this book in 1994 to persuade doctors and parents to honor the genital integrity of baby boys, we hoped that no reprinting would be necessary because this barbaric practice would end. And the rate has dropped to 55% in 2005, with California having almost 70% of their newborn boys left intact today. Fourteen states no longer use Medicaid dollars from taxpayers to pay for this penile reduction surgery that is not recommended by any medical society in the world.
