From the inside cover of the dust jacket:
" What is a teen-ager ?
You're one, and I just got over being one.
But what is the teenage made of besides seven years of dating and waiting and a lot of wondering ?
Well, I thought we might look at these wonderful years together;
I'll tell you about me as a teenage, and we'll talk about you, too.
I'll bet your life right now is filled with questions that have too many answers and with problems that you're not sure you can solve.
And there are mistakes to make - I know, I've made some whoppers.
Along with this go the greatest changes we'll ever make, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
I'd like to talk with you about the whole list of challenges you meet as a teen-ager - altered relations with parents and friends,
dating, going steady, petting, earning money, planning a future, getting an education .... developing spiritually.
There are other hurdles we can hash over, such as marrying and starting a family - both of which I did as a teen-ager.
Here's where my wife, Shirley, has some helpful pointers to make; and I'll pass these along to you, so you can get the
feminine angle on how our " home corporation " works.
Teen-age can be a confusin' time, but it can also be a great adventure.
I think the better we understand what makes our wheels turn during these years, the more we can make of them and
the more we can enjoy them.
Now - let's look at them together. "
