Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The boys' version of this book is great. The authors write the book with a personal touch. They combine their experiences with the facts of life extremely well. The book seems like it was written by a teenager, not an adult. It does not read like an encyclopedia entry but rather like a comic book on life, making it much more enjoyable. Index. Illus.
