5.0 out of 5 stars The best on "Sex and Character" June 13 2000
By Fred Voltmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Textbook Binding
I have been working with youth for 12 years, and I have spent the last year reviewing abstinence based sex-ed material as part of an abstinence only youth training program. This is the best book I have found. Well written and well laid out, it has a great balance of facts, powerful stories, and thought provoking questions. I would put this book in the hands of every middle school, High school, and College age young person in the country if I could!
