Then this book, an easy pick-up-and-read guide to teenagers - and how to live happily with them, is aimed at you. By interviewing over 40 parents and their offspring, and based on up-to-the-minute medical and social facts, the authors have produced a handbook that highlights areas of conflict and advises on how to get things right. For both parents who want to get maximum enjoyment out of life with their teenagers and for teenagers to give to their parents, this book seeks to cover everything you want to know about friendships, drugs, sex, bullying, grief, eating disorders and general teenage living.

Teenagers Reviews

'The parents' bible to understanding teenagers' OXFORD TIMES

'Packed with good advice for those on either side of the generation gap' - BRISTOL EVENING NEWS

'How to steer teens through the years from 12 to 20 in the world as it is, rather than how some of us would like it to be.' - IRISH TIMES

'Worth reading.' - WOMAN

'All parents know that bringing up children is not easy and when it comes to teenagers, how many families have wished that there had been something or somebody around to help in handling a crisis? A psychiatrist, maybe, or a taxi-driver, a counsellor, referee or laundry assistant. Teenagers: the Agony, the Ecstasy, the Answers takes the place of all of these.

Accessible and easy to read, this book is informative, down to earth and at once captures the attention. According to the authors, "What Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus did for helping to explain adult relationships, Teenagers: the Agony, the Ecstasy, the Answers does for relationships between adults and adolescents."

More than 40 parents and their teenagers were interviewed by the authors, both healthcare experts who have been writing books for young people for more than 10 years. (See The New Diary of a Teenage Health Freak and The Diary of the Other Health Freak, which have been adapted as television series and translated into 22 languages).
