Baby Boomers busted

"Dawn has taken on popular opinion that was adopted by Baby Boomers, then Generation X, then Generation Y, and now into the future - an opinion that is based in moral relativism and a mentality that we all need to be "true" to ourselves. Popular culture has told us that we are free! from outdated rules and that we can now "explore" our sexuality without fear of the guilt that plagued our mothers and grandmothers.

"However, what we find in Dawn's work is that the empirical data does not bear this out. While some may be free of the guilt, we are not free from the consequences and the ultimate irony is met - in "making love" to gain love we instead find no love. ...

"Thank God for women like Dawn Eden who are not afraid to speak the truth. This book depicts an ugly landscape in the dating scene of New York City, but it also provides a beacon by which a person can travel through the muck and mire and come out with dignity and integrity intact."
