Book review: Unprotected
When Miriam Grossman first wrote her confrontational book entitled, Unprotected, she published under the name Anonymous, M.D. Grossman, a campus psychiatrist at UCLA, admitted she did so because she was afraid of the response she might receive from her coworkers and others in her profession. About a week after publication, she let the world know it was indeed her that wrote Unprotected.
Why was Grossman afraid to claim a book in which she had invested so much time? Because Unprotected confronts the issues in our colleges and universities today that most people ignore. Grossman discusses issues of “safe-sex” education, social agendas, and how the world of political correctness has restricted her from truly helping her patients. This insightful book deals with hot-button issues such as homosexuality, the misinformation provided students about sex, STDs, and their consequences, plus many other topics perhaps you never knew existed. Perhaps most impressive is knowing this woman is on a mission to tell the truth!
I recommend this book to every college student, parent, pastor, or anyone who is curious about what is happening behind closed doors of “health” clinics on college campuses today. Experience it through the eyes of a psychiatrist who, daily, faces the pressure of being politically correct and how this affects her medical practice. As I read this book, I found myself not only being educated on various topics, but also feeling encouraged that there are others out there who want to stand up for truth. This book has inspired me to take a stand for what I believe in, and I hope it does the same for you.
