This book not only respects teens, it understands teens. It respects and understands parents. The humor, wordplays, and general tone of the book demonstrate Alex J. Packer's great skill and knowledge of his subject. The introduction addresses teens directly: "This book lays out a smorgasbord of strategies. What happens after that is up to you. It's up to your motivation, creativity, flexibility, and commitment. If changes occur, if miracles are wrought, it will be because of you." Packer presents the challenge with a kid glove, a wink, and absolute understanding. Filled with great information presented in the perfect way to reach teens, this book should be on everyone's required reading list. A 2000 Parents' Choice® Gold Award.
