Editorial Reviews Review

Adolescence is one of the most excruciatingly embarrassing, developmentally difficult, and hormonally intoxicating times of life. Whether you're a teen trying to deal with the ineptitude of your parents or a parent trying to deal with the turmoil of your teen, it's pretty likely that you could use some help. Enter The New Teenage Body Book; winner of the American Library Association's Best Book for Young Adults Award, this guide provides straightforward answers to the toughest questions about adolescence.

The editors have divided teens' letters into several subject areas: Woman's Body/Woman's Experience, Man's Body/Man's Experience, Your Changing Feelings, Your Troubling Feelings, Eating for Good Health, Exercising for Good Health, You and Your Sexuality, The Truth About Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Birth Control: An Ounce of Prevention, and Am I Normal? Questions are answered with clear, factual, nonjudgmental responses. The detailed information contained in this frank, honest guide may at times startle the squeamish, but readers will greatly appreciate the candid approach to questions harbored by humans of all ages.

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-- Since its first publication as The Teenage Body Book (Wallaby, 1979; o.p.), this book and its revisions have been among the most thorough and objective broad-scope self-help books available to teenagers. While the authors have left most of the text exactly as it appeared in the 1987 edition (Price/Stern/Sloan; o.p.), they have updated and/or expanded upon much of the information and, in a few instances, deleted some material. (For example, the latest publication does not repeat the detailed description of ``the pattern of a typical sexual experience'' presented in the last edition.) Information regarding medical treatments, statistics, addresses, telephone numbers, and social viewpoints has been updated. The authors continue to treat the content with matter-of-fact seriousness, adding sections on current ``hot topics'' and recent developments. This edition includes information on eating disorders. It has not only a comparison of sex fantasy and reality that readers will find both explanatory and reassuring, but also a current discussion of abortion issues. Sexually active teenagers have been added as a special risk group for AIDS, with statistics explaining the addition. This book (or at least the 1987 edition) belongs in any library serving teenagers. --Dona Weisman, Northeast Texas Library System, Garland

Format: Paperback
I was prompted to buy this book when I read that Tyra Banks credits it as a major reason why she did not experiment with drugs or sex at an early age. As her mom had with her, I plan on sharing this book with my daughter when she is 10, in advance of all of the pre-teen and teen experiences and situations she will undoubtedly find herself in. My expectation is that her knowledge about these topics and many more discussed in this excellent book will enable her to make more informed decisions. Thus, I believe it may help her to resist a certain amount of negative peer pressure. This book presents a lot of information that would assist EVERY teen in navigating through what are arguably the most difficult years of our lives.
Three fingers up and the thumb and index finger in a circle: This book is A-OK!!! I recommend it highly.

I use this book to prepare for talking to groups of teenage boys. The information covers just about anything they ask. I would hope the author/s would do an update to cover some of the drugs that teenagers are getting into these days.
