A few years ago, we wrote YOU: The Owner’s Manual, which taught people about the inner workings of their bodies—and how to keep them running strong. But you know what? There’s a big difference between an adult’s body and your body, between adults’ health mysteries and your health mysteries, between their questions and your questions. So, teens, this book is for YOU. We’ll talk to you about the biological changes that are happening in your brain and your body. We’ll show you how to get more energy, improve your grades, protect your skin, salvage more sleep, get fit, eat well, maximize your relationships, make decisions about sex, and so much more. In fact, in these pages, we answer hundreds of your most pressing health-related questions. And you know what else? We are going to treat you like adults in one very important way: We’re not going to preach. We’re going to give you straight-up information that you can use to make smart choices about how to live the good life—and enjoy every second of it. Starting right now.

How do you fix your troubled adolescent? After years of working as an in-home therapist and probation officer, author William Glover grew frustrated with the conventional wisdom that said medication and/or therapy offered the only hope for angry, defiant, unmotivated, ADHD, ADD, oppositional, defiant, drug involved, juvenile court involved, and behaviorally handicapped kids. Based on his work with adolescents and their parents, he became convinced that the solution for the majority of troubled kids resided not with the professionals, but with the parents of these children. With this as a starting point, Glover began developing "The Adolescent Owner's Manual," a unique and effective resource designed to provide parents with the practical, common-sense tools and skills essential to parenting troubled adolescents.

There are no shortcuts when it comes to weight, and waist, loss—no twenty-pounds-in-three-days formulas, no way to get from size XXXL to size S by the end of the weekend. But you can diet smart, not hard. In YOU: Losing Weight, the doctors behind the bestselling YOU: On a Diet offer their best ninety-nine tips and strategies for getting your body into the shape and with the waist size that you’ve always wanted. Dieting can’t be hard if you are to succeed for a lifetime, and it should never feel like a sacrifice. With the right strategy, you can make the lifestyle changes that you need to lose weight and get healthy for good. In this handy waist-loss guide, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz use their signature wit and wisdom to boil down the science and strategies for you.

More important, America’s Doctors share their favorite weight-loss super-foods recipes and provide exercise suggestions for how to get the most from any kind of workout. With food plans, shopping lists, and comprehensive advice on the science of waist loss, this pocket-size paperback is packed with everything dieters need to know about how to develop better habits that will keep pounds off for good.

So, you're curious. You are on the road to becoming a young adult and it can be a bumpy ride. Your body and your thinking are changing. No doubt you have some questions about the process. I asked kids and their parents what they would like to know more about. Those questions turned into topics, which ultimately turned into this book. Birth of a Teenager: an owner's manual addresses subjects like body image, nutrition, hormones, vegetarianism, skin care and a whole lot more. Crack it open, you just might get YOUR questions answered. About Corie Goodson Having earned her Master's in Public Health in 1993, Corie has worked as a community health educator, teacher, and wellness speaker for over a decade. She has worked with kids and teens since the 1970's and has seen first hand how negative health trends have affected them into adulthood. "The media bombards us with over 40,000 negative health messages annually and it is having a profound effect on our youth. There's so much confusing information out there. It's enough to drive kids and their parents crazy." Corie's mission is to educate kids and adults alike so that they can make more informed decisions regarding their health, despite the media hype. "I want kids to be more secure in their knowledge so that when misinformation comes their way, they can ask better questions." Education has the power to change the future and small consistent changes in lifestyle can add up to big results over time. Change isn't always easy, but it is worth it if it tips the scale in the right direction and can offer a brighter future.

'I love my kids with a primal passion but when they hit puberty I wanted to hand them back for a refund. If only I'd had this witty, gritty owner's manual. It's a pithy, practical guide for all deranged parents.' KATHY LETTE 'I wish I'd read this book before I acquired the three teenagers I have. Very useful.' CRAIG REUCASSEL 'This book should be compulsory reading for teenagers, but since they already know everything, I highly recommend it for their parents instead.' DEE MADIGAN 'This book articulates the frustrations and stresses of modern parenting and provides a reassuring reality check on how to navigate the choppy waters of raising teens in an always-on, screen-obsessed world.' JOCELYN BREWER, psychologist So, you're having a teenager? Congratulations/commiserations. Worried about drugs? We recommend Valium, wine and HRT. Happy you survived the toddler tantrums? Let us introduce you to the eye roll, the cold shoulder and the incoherent mumble. On the bright side, you've reduced your need for Google - your adolescent is now able to frequently correct, hector and lecture you with their strong opinion on everything. And if you feel tired, you're not imagining it. Teen years are like dog years: for every year your teen ages, you age seven. You need a survival guide for the testing times ahead. Friends, next-door neighbours and fellow mums of teens Sarah Macdonald and Cathy Wilcox have lived through it all and produced this straight-talking, not entirely sarcastic, informative guide to what for many parents are the most challenging - but interesting and exciting - years in the role. From A is for Argumentative, Awkward and Angst, to Z is for Zits and Zzzzzs. Because having a toddler is a doddle.
