Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dr. Ruth, America's leading psychosexual therapist, whose career spans print, radio, television, and video, is known for using explicit language while giving advice on sex. In this book, written with the coauthor of Dr. Ruth Talks About Grandparents, she provides many helpful tips on drugs, alcohol, sex, eating disorders, loneliness, religion, and sexual orientation. Some readers may be offended by Dr. Ruth's explicit vocabulary, but her frank and approachable method will ease prospective college students' anxiety about leaving home for the first time and prepare them for what lies ahead. The book's entertaining format is perfect for bus and train commuters looking for light but engaging reading. And with Dr. Ruth's name on the book cover, it is sure to attract attention. Recommended for public libraries.--Samuel T. Huang, Univ. of Arizona Libs., Tucson Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
