Press Release Summary: \"Richard Dudum\'s new teen self-help book \'What Your Mother
Never Told You - A Survival Guide For Teenage Girls\' hit #1 this past weekend in
Amazon\'s Parenting-Teenager rankings.\"

Press Release Body:
San Francisco, CA,February,06,2008 -- Less than three months on the market, \"What
Your Mother Never Told You - A Survival Guide For Teenage Girls\' climbed to #1 in
Amazon\'s Parenting-Teenagers category this past weekend. Written by Richard Dudum,
the book also ranked #1 on Amazon\'s \'Hot New Releases in Books.\' Amazon\'s best
selling new and future releases in Teenagers is updated hourly.

There\'s no-nonsense straight talk in \'What Your Mother Never Told You,\' a small,
unassuming paperback published late last year. This self-help book is loaded with
good sense, parsed out in short, easily digestible chapters, in graphic,
occasionally crude language that may offend grown-ups but immediately translates
with teens.

Richard Dudum, 48, is someone who communicates uncommonly well with teens. The
father of four children -- three of them teenagers, two of them girls -- also
believes that \"most of the negative messages coming from the media, the Internet and
popular culture are directed primarily at girls,\" especially in music videos and
reality television.The book addresses a wide variety of problems that teen girls
face throughout their adolescent years, and does so in a straightforward and direct
manner without sugarcoating the issues

\"Nothing is left unsaid in What Your Mother Never Told You.\" Richard Dudum does not
shy away from touchy subjects. He delves into deep issues and addresses them
bluntly, including teen sensitive current issues involving social networking Web
sites like Facebook, email and the Internet.

With this book, \"Richard Dudum says he hopes to help girls anticipate and avoid
people, places and situations that could put them in harm\'s way\" by emphasizing two
themes: the importance of self-respect, and having effective communication skills.

\"I want the girls to speak up, I want them to be assertive. I want them to know it\'s
OK to say no.\"

\"Richard Dudum recommends that parents not give the book directly to their
daughters, which could mean rejection out of hand. But if you leave it in their
bedroom, they will read it.\"

Richard Dudum is a San Francisco lawyer, musician, Realtor, summer-camp director,
community leader and cancer survivor. He\'s been married for 25 years. \'\'\'What Your
Mother Never Told You\' offers clear-sighted perspective and no-nonsense self-help
advice from a father with the ability to convey tough love in a kind and supportive
manner.\" PressRelease Distribution By
