Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up-Well meaning, informative, and useful, this book is unfortunately marred by a completely unattractive presentation. Written by two public-health professionals, the prose is dry and clinical, giving little consideration to the audience to whom it is addressed. It also fails to provide something that all adolescents want in a sex book: pictures-the more detailed and realistic, the better. The occasional black-and-white diagrams that do appear look like what one might find in a health textbook. The last chapter is a discussion and curriculum guide, which leaves one unsure about the intended audience. Miriam Stoppard's Sex Ed (DK, 1997), Sabrina Solin's The Seventeen Guide to Sex and Your Body (S & S, 1996), and Elizabeth Fenwick and Richard Walker's How Sex Works (DK, 1994) all address similar subject matter in a much more appealing format and style. Pass on Like It Is.

From Library Journal

Psychiatrist Lieberman and his daughter Karen, both with backgrounds in public health, attempt to tackle the age-old issue of teenage sex. Written with high school students as the intended audience, the book discusses issues from STDs to the use of various contraceptives. The coverage of contraceptives is extensive (although there is no new information here) and includes history, failure rates, and the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Throughout, true stories of teenagers and contraceptive use are given as examples. Everything is handled tastefully, but given the subject matter of this book, it could be a controversial addition to some collections. In its favor, the book dedicates a chapter to a discussion and curriculum guide for educators and parents and includes an appendix for those seeking additional information on birth control, with useful addresses of organizations, including E-mail addresses. Recommended for large public libraries. [E. James Lieberman is a long-time LJ reviewerAEd.]AMee-Len Hom, Hunter Coll. Lib., New Yor.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be extremely well-written and informative. The authors tackle a sensitive subject in a clear and direct manner, covering issues such as birth control, pregnancy, sexually-transmitted diseases, and relationships. The book will most certainly provide helpful information to teenagers, parents as well as counselors.

This book gave adequate information, and is good to teach your child about upcoming issues. It is a little outdated, therefore there are some issues which might differ in today's world. The contraceptive information is very detailed, and helpful for learning concepts.
