Today on Maryland's 98 rock morning show, they were interviewing Dee Snider of 80's metal band Twisted Sister.

Before you laugh (ok go ahead I think Dee's a hoot too!), but...Dee is a savvy businessman, and the DJ's were asking him about how UNLIKE all the other 80's hair metal acts who wound up penniless and flipping hamburgers...

..Dee Snider is a very successful businessman who branched out into many areas; he has written movie screenplays, produced some cheesy (but moneymaking) horror movies, and...

..wrote a children's book that he said is and I am quotong him...''required reading in Russia'' and how proud he is of the book, which I didn't catch the name but I am going to do a search on the web.

Dee was NOT joking, and was very adamant about how proud he is that the children's schools in Russia think so highly of his children's book.

Do you know anything about this?

I left school so many years ago... But I think this guy was talking about other Russia, maybe an imaginary Russia, but not the one where I do live. Or maybe he meant something different to what he said.

Here's the review from Amazon.com and it sounds like a wonderful, well intended, informative book for teens trying to cope with the issues of their teen years. Get's a GREAT review!


Dee Snider's Teenage Survival Guide
by Dee Snider

3 used & new available from $14.30
Reading level: Young Adult
Edition: Paperback

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal
Grade 9-12 Parents and teachers suffer a good deal of criticism in this new advice book for teenagers by the lead singer of the heavy metal group Twisted Sister. Nevertheless, as a how-to-survive-adolescence book, it's above average. Snider and Bashe cover the usual topics: the search for self-identity, individualism, coping with peer pressure, sexuality and birth control, being in love, the dangers of alcohol and drugs, family problems, school. The topics may be trite, but the writing isn't; it's surprisingly readable. Snider breaks up the information presented with anecdotes from his life and humorous, although sometimes crude, asides. His advice is direct and honest, but he leaves ultimate responsibility for life decisions to readers. Facts are accurate, but he does not cover any long-term side effects of birth control pills. This will be read by more kids than Weston's Girltalk (Harper, 1985). Also, it is broader in scope than Sol Gordon's When Living Hurts (Union of American Hebrew Congregations, 1985; o.p.) or I Hate School (Crowell, 1986) by Wirths and Bowman-Kruhm. A final chapter lists organizations, with addresses and phone numbers, from which readers can get help for the problems discussed in the text. Snider's tone is one of support and empathy, and his book is sure to draw readers. Ellen Ramsay, Amphitheater High School, Tucson, Ariz .
