Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- Scariano recounts ``Dr. Ruth's'' eventful, courageous life. She was a small girl during World War II when her Jewish family sent her from their home in Germany to live in Switzerland, and she never saw them again. Her lifelong interest in people and relationships led her to pursue studies in sociology and hu man sexuality, resulting in teaching posts, pri vate practice, and finally to international re nown by way of her radio and television programs. This account of her life is clear and direct, and presents a fairly well-balanced pic ture. However, given the remarkable events in the woman's life, it's unfortunate that the book isn't very compelling. Only a very few sources are quoted directly, and Dr. Ruth is not quoted at all. The book is heavily fictionalized with thoughts and feelings that are not substantiat ed. Other detractions include mediocre photo graphs and a list for further reading that in cludes titles not suitable for the intended audience of this book. Still, it could generate a lot of interest, especially if Westheimer and Kravetz's First Love (Warner, 1986) is a part of the collection. --Marilyn Makowski, Green wood High School, SC
Gary Young
The famous "Dr. Ruth" has a story to tell about her childhood that is just as interesting as the profession that has made her famous. Karola Ruth Siegel survived the Holocaust, labored in the new state of Israel, and fought for her education. Young readers will have another opportunity to "grow up" with a celebrity and to observe that achieving success is not a matter of luck. In addition to telling her story, the text also provides opinions--positive and negative--about Dr. Westheimer that afford a holographic image of the feisty little lady (four feet, seven inches tall) whose career has been to promote a proper understanding of sexuality.
