Overview


About The Author
Sally Wendkos Olds has written extensively about intimate relationships, personal growth and developmental issues throughout the life cycle, and has won national awards for both her book and magazine writing. She is the author or coauthor of seven books for general readers, three college textbooks and more than 200 articles in major national magazines.

Olds's first book, THE COMPLETE BOOK OF BREASTFEEDING (written in consultation with pediatrician Marvin S. Eiger, M.D. -- Workman, Bantam), was first published in 1972 and completely updated and revised in 1999 for a third edition. It has become a classic, having sold well over one million copies.

Her book THE ETERNAL GARDEN: SEASONS OF OUR SEXUALITY (Times Books, 1985), looks at sexual development throughout life as a series of passages, or turning points. In 100 interviews, people aged 20 to 83 revealed to the author intimate details of their sexual attitudes and activities. She integrated these gripping stories with the most recent research on sexuality to offer a profile of contemporary sexual behavior. The book received excellent reviews in both general and specialized publications.

THE WORKING PARENTS' SURVIVAL GUIDE (iUniverse, 2000; Bantam, Prima, 1983-1989) draws on the author's own experiences as the working mother of three daughters, as well as extensive interviews with working parents and with top experts on every facet of the working/parenting dilemma. The result covers every conceivable problem a working parent encounters, from finding good child care to finding enough time for love-making.

She is also the coauthor, with psychologist Diane E. Papalia, Ph.D., of A CHILD'S WORLD, HUMAN DEVELOPMENT, and PSYCHOLOGY, all college textbooks (all published by McGraw-Hill), which have gone into a total of 15 editions and have been translated into several languages. The two development books are both leaders in their fields, are both in press for new editions and have been read by more than two million college students. Olds is currently writing NEPAL SKETCHBOOK: GLIMPSES OF A RAI VILLAGE, about the people and the way of life in a remote Himalayan village.

She is a former president of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA). She speaks often to professional, parent, and general audiences, and has made many radio and TV appearances.
