This is a book that should be given to every thirteen year old, and should also be studied in school for thirteen to seventeen year olds (repetitively, and tested every year): it would certainly out-perform the "education" that is (supposed to be) got during health class. (It should also be used in conjunction with _Crucial Conversations_ to get the most benefit in relationships.)

This book offered good information on creating a stronger relationship and having a strong physical connection. I think it is a classy book for this sort of topic.
