Reviews - What do customers think about Love or Addiction? The Power & Peril of Teen Sex & Romance?
Excellent book, well researched Jun 13, 2007
with real life stories. The problem was the included cd was scratched and had so much glue on it from being sealed in the back cover, that it was useless. A teen may be more likely to read it book had the cd worked. I didn't return though BECAUSE the BOOK is EXCELLENT and talks to teens without judgement.
This book is great for teens & young adults... Dec 4, 2006
Dr. Schaeffer offers suggestions that are simple to understand in the very complex language of love. This book is practical and helpful for teenagers and even parents. Highly recommended if you or someone close to you is struggling in a relationship.
