Editorial Reviews

Review

"Don't be surprised if you find yourself thinking, ‘That sounds like me!’ Dr. Grimes gives us the much needed reality check and the necessary information to prevent us from becoming a character in Seductive Delusions."

(Ashley Wietsma, "Orgasmic Chemistry" column, The Johns Hopkins News-Letter)

"One of my students asked, ‘Is it weird if some of the people in my group are reading this book like it is The Hunger Games?’ I thought that was a compliment to Dr. Grimes and Seductive Delusions!"

(Schoolteacher)

"Grimes debunks the 'seductive delusion' that people cannot catch STDs if they choose the 'right' partner in a readable and well-organized book."

(Library Journal)

"While probably not recreational reading, the book is a good gift for the teen in your life that just might be contemplating getting into a relationship (sexual or not)."

(Sacramento Book Review)

"Read the book from cover to cover... knowledge is power."

(Healthbolt.net)

"I would highly recommend this book to all sexually active young people. It is eye-opening and disturbing in the right sort of way."

(www.getbetterhealth.com)

"[Grimes] enthralls us with gripping tales of real people facing illness and tragedy. And the kick comes with how she wisely brings the reader to be motivated to avoid the infectious danger that is truly out there. (I'm getting copies for my kids.)... SHOULD be a required textbook for all High School health classes."

(Richard P. Holm, MD National Association of Medical Communicators)

"Anyone who is sexually active is at risk of contracting an STD. By sharing these very real experiences of people you and I meet every day, Dr. Grimes shows how everyday people can contract one of these preventable diseases. Everyone, including physicians, can learn from the stories in this book."

(Robert E. Rakel, M.D., Baylor College of Medicine)

"From Luke to Liz, from Meredith to Mitch, the people in this book could be anyone you know―including you. Because you like them and identify with them, you begin to believe, for real, that you, too, might get an STD and suffer the consequences. Every young person who is having sex or thinking about having sex should read this book."

(Diane F. Clark, R.N., Family Life Educator, Chesterfield County, Virginia)

"What do teenagers, soccer moms, CEOs, and medical students have in common? Each is at risk of contracting an STD. Seductive Delusions illustrates the stories behind sexually transmitted disease statistics, giving faces and emotions to these contagious infections. Don't be surprised if you find yourself thinking, 'That sounds like me!' Dr. Grimes gives us the much needed reality check and the necessary information to prevent us from becoming a character in Seductive Delusions."

(Ashley Wietsma, "Orgasmic Chemistry" column, The Johns Hopkins News-Letter) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Eminently readable – applicable to and appropriate for all ages - this text anticipates and answers questions regarding the length and breadth of our current contemporary Sexually Transmitted Infections. When initially published in 2008 this outstanding text was vital, valuable and much needed; then, when published as a Second Edition in 2016 this text is even more vital, valuable and even more needed."

(Sexually Transmitted Disease) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
