    Everything you wanted to know about teens but were afraid to ask.

    As a psychiatrist, I received an advance copy of this marvelous book. The problems described are real and the situations are universal, but the solutions provided are brilliant. Every parent of teenagers needs this guide through those troublesome years. This book offers unique appraches to everyday issues with teens. It explains why seemingly common sense responses to teenagers don't work, and then it offers effective ways to improve communication with and understanding of our teens. The chapters are well organized and include frequent side bars to summarize the most important points and advice. This is a new and very helpful reference, and there's nothing else like it out there.

    Incredible value for parents.

    Written in plainspeak, yet obviously by experts. Richly practical.
