To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this for my daughter to help with her with her puberty, and body changes. And she said that it's a good, and it's not full of jargon. It has helped her, as she wouldn't wear training bras, but since reading has somehow changed her thinking in this way.
I think not daughter now has read this book 2-3times, and finds a good read. If she likes this book then it's good enough for me
Acheté par curiosité après la découverte de mayim bialik que j'apprécie beaucoup. Le bouquin est bien écrit à la fois avec des Infos sérieuses mais un ton drôle et casual. J'aurais aimé l'avoir à mes 12 ans...
All children are different, and we live in very different times than when I was growing up. That being said, I would not have given this book to my daughter as a preteen. She would not have been ready for it then. That does not mean that all girls would not be. I strongly suggest that parents read this before handing it over. You know your child best and can gauge when/if they will benefit from this book. My daughter is fifteen, and I had no problem handing it over once I finished. I admit I am a bit of a prude, and there were sections in the book that made me cringe. I see them though as an opportunity for discussion at the appropriate age. This book is worth purchasing even if it has to sit on your shelf for a little while until the time is right.
The author did a wonderful job of picking relevant topics and covering them with reason and genuineness. Her heart is evident on each page, and, though it does read somewhat sciency, I presume the heart of a neuroscientist might be somewhat sciency. The author is a mother, but her voice in the book is more of a mentor, a mentor who wants the very best for the reader. She shares both science and personal experience. I appreciate the intelligence of this book and how it is woven with candor and sincerity. I'm very glad I bought it and read it, and I look forward to discussing it with my daughter when she finishes it.
This was a bit more of a sex education book that I had realized when I ordered it, so it's a little bit old for the person that I bought it for. However, it is a very informative and well-written book, so it would be great as long as it is given to the appropriate age group
It's well written, the first chapter was just a surprise. Looking further, that is mentioned in one of the description. But I didn't expect it based on the title and subtitle. Bought for my god-daughter, and had to run it by her mom because that topic wasn't quite my place to share about. It all worked out, it just caught me off guard because I didn't read all the details about the book before purchasing.
Bought this book for my young teen granddaughter. She thought it was great. Good advice from a good source. Only negative comment; printing on the book wasn't always easy to read. Some areas were lighter than others.
