As a publisher of numerous educational and informational programs, I commend Dubovik for this superior instructional tool-with or without an instructor. At last, someone has attempted to write serious material in an interesting way for today's young adult readers.
Got to Use Your Head for Something Other than Growing Hair makes a valuable addition to everyone's library.
-Tony Medrano, Publisher Universal Printing and Publishing, Albuquerque, NM
I found Got to Use Your Head for Something Other than Growing Hair a very interesting and lively presentation of imaginative short pieces. Dubovik's ability to express positive values without sounding too preachy is managed with considerable success ...
Hope that school teachers, librarians, and parents will be as pleased ... as I was.
-Professor Herman Piven John Jay College, City University of N.Y.
This worthwhile volume of short stories and essays helps administer an educational shot in teens' gray matter without needle or pain; Got to Use Your Head for Something Other than Growing Hair makes a fun reading experience for young adults. Older adults, too.
Wish we had the opportunity to publish and distribute this valuable book.
-John Raydell Editor, Publications Co., Albuquerque, NM
Got to Use Your Head for Something Other than Growing Hair is a delightful, refreshing read that should be used in every middle and high-school classroom. Teen-agers will absorb more from one of G. J. Dubovik's snippets of wisdom than they will from a variety of other sources.
The book's presentation ... makes it easy for one to pick up for a quick read and sit back down to digest the wisdom.
