The book is divided into four sections: childhood and adolescence; self-efficacy; relationships; and women and men. The author discusses subjects as varied as self-esteem in childhood; teenage sex; the search for intimacy; affairs; dieting; mothers and daughters; negotiation skills, both in the workplace and in personal relationships; and the crisis of sexuality in the Catholic Church. Full of intelligent observation and sound suggestions, Maureen Gaffney points to possible ways for each of us to address these issues, all of them central to the way we live now.
