The "Go Ask Alice" Book of Answers: A Guide to Good Physical, Sexual, and Emotional Health

by Columbia University

A frank, streetwise for Our Bodies, Our Selves for young men and women. What's the best way to minimize a hangover? Is it normal to have sex without experiencing an orgasm? How can you tell if a friend of yours is suffering from an eating disorder? Does smoking pot have long-term consequences? Does Seasonal Affective Disorder really exist? These are the questions young people are asking . . . . and until now, there's been no reliable book that has provided sensible, honest, and comforting answers specifically for this audience. The Go Ask Alice Book of Answers is a groundbreaking guide that mines the best material from the eponymous award-winning Web site. From sex and relationships to alcohol and drugs to fitness and nutrition, this comprehensive handbook is the first of its kind to provide much-needed information for young adults who cannot get reliable or anonymous information from conventional channels.
