"Highly readable, fascinating account of the lives of contemporary young women … In probing chapters that deftly synthesize sobering statistics, case anecdotes, and personal observation, Hinshaw makes a strong case that teen girls are in crisis … This balanced, thorough, compassionate title is required reading for parents, teachers, and teens of both sexes."
“If you read any book about girls in the next decade, make it The Triple Bind. Dr. Hinshaw masterfully articulates the intense and hidden pressures that every one of our daughters endures. Most important, he offers us solutions.”
–Dr. Meg Meeker, author of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters
“Society is failing today’s girls, pressuring them to achieve success at levels they cannot possibly attain. Now that Stephen Hinshaw has named and explained The Triple Bind, it’s up to all of us to better support the healthy development and inner well-being of girls. A must-read.”
–Diane E. Levin, Ph.D., coauthor of So Sexy So Soon
