Gr 9 Up-- This guide resembles a medical pamphlet more than a book, but the combination of down-to-earth advice, medical jargon, and explicit diagrams works. Unconventional cartoons and simple drawings are interspersed with minimal text that outlines causes, symptoms, lab tests, treatment, and prevention of all the major STDs including HIV and AIDS. Nonsexually transmitted conditions that produce similar symptoms and other common diseases associated with the genital area are also covered. An appendix includes a review of the facts in question-and-answer format and international hotline information. Fictitious case studies and an extensive glossary enhance the presentation. More entertaining than most standard works on the subject, the book will certainly attract browsers and supply readers with vital information. There is, however, no index. Nourse's Sexually Transmitted Diseases (Watts, 1992) provides more in-depth coverage, but Daugirdas's presentation will appeal to a wider audience.
