Straight talk about VD isn't too hard to come by nowadays and reputable advisors from Sol Gordon to Eric Johnson have treated the subject at greater or lesser length. Suzanne Sgroi's case-history oriented answers are more personal than most and she is very supportive of the young person who might be afraid or embarrassed by the prospect of visiting a VD clinic. However, the really important feature which, not incidentally, takes up most of the book is the exhaustive directory of VD treatment centers in the United States. . . well worthwhile, though a resourceful librarian might be able to compile at least a local directory for less than $6.50.
