Review:

"This book is certainly up-to-date, and presents in unbiased, well-reasoned discussion of the subject. There are copious notes and an equally list of books and other sources consulted, as well as contact information on organizations mentioned in the text."
-- School Library Journal (October 2001) (School Library Journal 20011001)

"Informative, forthright overview...attempts to be as objective as possible."
-- Booklist (Febraury 2002) (Booklist 20020201)

"Better than average, due to its organization, approach, and illustrations. The author takes a straightforward, informative approach, uncluttered by the authentic first-person narratives that frequently mark such books. Suggestions for further reading and help are appended."
-- School Library Journal (April 2001) (School Library Journal 20010401)

"In succinct prose and a forthright style, Strada gives teens an overview...Effortlessly blending personal comments with information...Although most of the testimonials are from older teens and adults, the simple language and tame black-and-white photographs seem to target a younger YA readership. Very simple charts may be useful to middle-graders...the book puts forward some interesting occasionally alarming data...Whether for younger or older readers, this in an unsensationalized, easy-to-understand overview that makes the core issues clear."
-- Booklist (March 2001) (Booklist 20010301)

"A book that looks at tough questions regarding cause and effect...Information is drawn from a wide, reputable assortment of sources, and from the representation of sides of the issues is fair...black-and-white photos, graphs, and cartoons are scattered throughout."
-- School Library Journal (March 2001) (School Library Journal 20010301)
