The sexual abuse of boys is a problem that has remained veiled in myth and misinformation for far too long.  While the sexual abuse of female children has been widely documented, there are lingering assumptions that the sexual abuse of male children is rare, that the consequences are less serious than for girls, and even that boys share responsibility with their perpetrators.  In this long overdue book, psychologist Mic Hunter, who has extensive clinical experience treating male victims of child sexual abuse, explodes these and other myths and offers an overview of the recovery process.
