Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Few maps are available for the perilous journey from adolescence to adulthood. James Dobson (When God Doesn't Make Sense; Love Must Be Tough, etc.), founder and president of Focus on the Family, offers both concise counsel and solid reflection about that passage here. Expanding on a popular seven-part video series of the same name, Dobson deals with a range of issues and choices faced by young people between 16 and 26: self-image; freedom and responsibility; financial management; changing relationships with parents; college and career choices; and sexuality. His conservative approach may make some readers uneasy but, punctuated with vivid stories and with engaging question-and-answer sections, Edge offers credible and useful insight into major life choices for young seekers. (Apr.)
Library Journal
In his earlier books, Dobson, founder of focus on the family, wrote about topics ranging from the parental discipline of children to the relationship between husbands and wives. Here Dobson addresses the problems facing young adults between the ages of 16 and 26. Believing that life's most crucial decisions are often made during this ten-year period, Dobson offers his advice about finding God's will in the choice of a marriage partner, the quest for a profesion, the control of money, and the establishment of self-esteem. Although the book records the voices of young adults through a series of questions and answers, Dobson's tone is often arrogant, his demeanor sexist, and his attitude narrow-minded. Still he has a large and dedicated following who will request this book.

I really liked this book. It gave me sooo many facts and insite about marriage and about the 12 stages of intamacy in a couples relationship. I highlighted all the important information and a lot of the passages writen for examples. And let me tell you, there are a lot of pages highlighted. The questions from other readers also gave me a lot of insite such as,love at first sight, marriage(when it comes along),and your own identity. Most likely they are questions that you are probobly thinking about right now(if you are intersted in this type of book). I know i have had a lot of questions that i wanted answered but i didnt want to ask my parents becuase they are too personal, well here you go this book will help you as they did me about sexual choices, education, and many more critical areas you may need help in. So please check this book out. You wont be sorry you got it. It helped me in so many ways.

This book is a great reference for people ages 16-24 who are seeking guidance from a Christian point of view. Dr. Dobson has some good insight on many issue that face people on the verge of adulthood. He includes many quotes from people and personal stories to demonstrate his points. I think this is a very effective technique to use. If you are a Christian ages 16-24 this is a book you should check out.
