Synopsis

Making Sexual Decisions The Ultimate Teen Guide by L. Kris Gowen

For teens too shy to talk to mom and dad about sex, this book offers good, sound advice on a highly personal level _ filling in some of the blanks in their knowledge about sex and relationships. Designed to help teens aged 16-19 make their own decisions about sexuality, Making Sexual Decisions talks not only about the facts of sexual health but also provides them with some things to think about when it comes to the feelings and emotions that surround sex.

Reviews

...the information presented here is solid, interesting, and will likely satisfy curious readers. VOYA, October 2007 The text uses an easy-to read, conversational tone from the author to instruct teens on a broad array of subjects which includes the basics of female and male anatomy, reproduction and pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, safer sex, and family planning options...it was refreshing to read a book written specifically for teens that was sex-positive and not afraid to tackle complex issues regarding sexuality...

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
