Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Dear Abby, after over 40 years of doling out caring advice on every conceivable subject on the American landscape, is as much a cultural icon as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny (and a lot more believable, in my view!). Reading this collection of her columns is a tangible way of watching the social fabric and issues evolve over more than four decades, and seeing Dear Abby evolve right along with it! When Dear Abby says, "I care," it is very clear that she is sincere and that she truly wants to help people help themselves. Why hasn't this woman gotten the Nobel Prize yet? Or at least, a Pulitzer ... Her generous, kind heart comes across on these pages loud and clear.

From Library Journal

This second edition is basically a trade paperback reprint of the 1981 original, with some format changes and new topics (e.g., AIDS) added. LJ 's reviewer saw the first edition as a collection of "predictable yet poignant problems of sex, marriage, religion, child rearing, and old age, interspersed with plaints of a Thurberesque procession of spouses whose partners find bowling an aphrodisiac or buy cemetery plots instead of sewing machines as anniversary gifts" ( LJ 11/15/81). In other words, something for everyone.
