I found this book extremely helpful. Initially, I was reluctant to buy it because of the high price (which is unfortunate as many people who need it will be put off from buying it) but i am so glad I did as it talks about such an important issue. It provides many fascinating case studies which illustrate perfectly the points it is making. The book would be helpful for both parents and for teachers, youth workers etc who work with teenagers. Our society's damaging preoccuppation with violence is so harmful - this book and others like it are really needed to help. The second half of the book gives very practical worksheets and step-by-step guidance on how to help troubled teenagers who desperately need all the help they can get.
