In this insightful production of Reviving Ophelia, for the first time listeners will hear the personal and painfully honest voices of girls on the front lines of adolescence. By laying bare their harsh day-to-day reality, Reviving Ophelia sounds an alarm identifying these problems, and issues a call to arms to deal with them. And with compassion, Dr. Pipher offers parents compassion, strength, and realistic strategies with which to revive these present-day Ophelias' lost sense of self.

I no longer just read... I process books!
Based on the material and when it was written, "Reviving Ophelia" had some sound and good advice. It was, however, written in the 90's and is painfully apparent almost immediately. If the book were updated, or Dr. Mary Pipher were to write a new book on the same subject, I would be interested in reading it.
In the end, it was not. I have this reaction because I was hoping that the book would help me with my 2014 daughters, who have very little in common with 1994 daughters.
Definitely a worthwhile read for anyone with a teen or pre-teen daughter. Just a little disappointed.
Great stories of issues girls have but could apply to boys too. A couple of areas left out from the book which I missed having but all in all it was great!
I thought Mary did a great job!
Mary's version of the developmental cycles and the conflicts they encounter within each cycle.
Great at and for any age - pre-teen to full blown young adults!
While the words and themes of this psychiatrist may be pertinent they are no longer relevant nor helpful. She's offered the myriad of problems teenage and adolescent girls face but she doesn't offer any solutions or parenting advice, hiding under the veil that "everyone is different."
No - the audio edition is missing 5 chapters from the print version.
The printed version has more information in each chapter - stories were skipped as well as paragraphs.
Some of it was new info other review.
This was worth every minute of listening. Appreciate all the info /perspective
