Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Mary Arnold
Twenty years after this title won the Christopher Award for "affirming the highest values of the human spirit," the authors have updated it to focus more on "skills for living" and psychological survival. Packed full of information on everything from the history of psychology and studies of human behavior, to ways in which adolescents can understand their own personalities and what influences their beliefs and behaviors, the "I'm okay, you're okay" theme stresses the development of self-esteem. The readable format and conversational tone of this book make it easy for readers to assimilate some of the more scholarly information on subjects like mental illness and the stages of adolescence. Stories personalize the stages of growth and cartoon illustrations lighten the text and reinforce the idea of the wide range of "normality" in this formative period. Some teens may really be interested in traveling inward and understanding what makes them tick-and as tomorrow's market audience for self-help books, this will show them how to make sense of the psychobabble. An up-to-date bibliography also includes other books that will interest teens. Index. Illus. Biblio.

    Where's your head? Great book, with a great story and information.

    The book I read was Where's your head? By Dale Bick Carlson. It was a psychology book for teenagers covering basically psychology, but in a young adult format. It has been reformatted to focus mainly on skills for living in for teenagers. I say young adult because the book really connected with teenagers and made the explanations and such easy to understand and easy to relate to. The major subjects this book covered was from potty training to complications in the teenage years. Throughout the book other subjects were mentioned you wouldn't expect such as sexuality, racism, disabilities such as mental illness and addiction. What I really liked about this book was the fact that it was filled with so much correct information, but as I said it was in an easy to understand format for young adults. The fact that the information was so great and you could relate to it really helped as well especially to read, even though it is an older book. Also included throughout the book are story problems in which different stories are explained and the best solution is made to teach teenagers what the right thing is to do. I found this helpful in the fact that also young adults could relate. The authors tone caught my attention as well. It was a friendly attitude and spiced up the liveliness of the book so it was not boring to read. I definitely recommend this book and would not tell anyone not to read it. If you are interested in psychology or need some extra information, it's a great read. I would give the book a full rating.
