Not for kids but teens; tough talk on tough topics like sex, alcohol, and parents. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Gr 6 Up-Advice on issues that confront today's teenagers is given in a confident manner by the talk-show host. Factual information supports personal, no-nonsense guidance in navigating life's various challenges on the road to adulthood. Examples from the author's life further augment the points being made, illustrating both triumphs and mistakes, and their natural consequences. Content adequately covers relationships, sex, music, school, and philosophical reflections that will aid teenagers in developing their unique identities and value systems. Each of the four sections concludes with Instant Message-style remarks about wise behavior ("A Smart Operator is a kid who-") versus unwise behavior ("A Pinhead is a kid who-"). The theme is that young people who follow the guide and work hard, are honest, and help others will succeed and lead healthier, happier lives. The authoritative tone will appeal to O'Reilly's fans, but will not engage adolescents who are not eager for advice from an adult whom they do not consider to be a role model. The table of contents provides an organized overview of the material.-Sharon A. Neal, Immaculata University, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
