About the Author:

Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, world-renowned sex therapist and educator, lectures at Princeton and Yale Universities. She provides guidance to today's young people through her website (drruth.com) and her show on mtvU. Pierre A. Lehu has worked with Dr. Ruth for decades as publicist, writer, and friend.

Review:

''The media surrounds kids far too early with a sexualized world they are rarely prepared to navigate. Dr. Ruth and Pierre Lehu's good common sense advice will provide parents with the confidence and information to guide their adolescents safely and reasonably through precarious teen years.'' --Sylvia Rimm, psychologist, author of Growing Up Too Fast

''Sex expert and TV personality Westheimer presents parents with a short, useful guide to understanding the social and sexual lives of modern teenages. This book would make a fine companion to titles written specifically for young audiences.'' --Library Journal

''Dr. Ruth matters more today than ever before. Educating and empowering parents to reach a generation of savvy, hyper-connected teenagers in practical and meaningful ways, this book is indispensable..'' --Ross Martin, Senior Vice President and Head of Programming, mtvU
