Teenage Survival Manual: How to Reach 20 in One Piece (and Enjoy Every Step of the Journey)
A safe landing place for Kamikaze Kids: Growing up has always been a high-risk activity. But the self-destructive behavior of today's teens threatens to place America's most valuable resource on the list of endangered species. And teenagers are getting a lot of unneeded help from the other side of 30. Adults have booby-trapped the teen years with all kinds of pitfalls: drugs, booze, AIDS, tobacco, a poisoned atmosphere, stray bullets, AWOL parents. No wonder so many young people act like there's no tomorrow.
Not a lot of preaching: This how-to, why-to, when-to manual is no work book. Nor is it a long boring lecture that tries to make young people act like old people. Instead, it's a sympathetic overview of growing-up in a world owned & operated by a suspicious bunch of know-it-all adults.
What's needed: If the next millennium is going to be different from the last one, the world had better start doing a better job of enlightening and inspiring the present generation of teenagers, the people who will steer Spaceship Earth as it flies into the 21st Century. What's needed is a lot less fault-finding and a lot more words of encouragement and support.
