The Amazon Glitch

In the past few weeks, I've received a number of emails from readers who have been trying to buy a copy of The Teenage Body Book (2016 edition) and are having trouble finding it on Amazon.


I'm so sorry for the difficulty!

For reasons neither I nor the publisher can understand, an Amazon search for "The Teenage Body Book" brings up only the old 2008 edition. In an effort to solve the problem, the publisher is planning to take the old edition out of print, but in the meantime, you can find the 2016 edition either by typing my name -- Kathy McCoy, Ph.D. -- into the Amazon search. The book will come up third on the list.

Even better, you can click on the following link to access the Amazon page for the new Teenage Body Book:

If you missed my previous blog post introducing this new edition, here's the link to that:
Dr. Kathy McCoy: Living Fully in Midlife and Beyond: The Project of a Lifetime

And here is a new short trailer for the book:

Again, my apologies for the ordering difficulty. The publisher is working very hard with Amazon to correct this as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I really appreciate those of you who have not only wanted to buy a copy of The Teenage Body Book but who also have made me and my publisher aware of the Amazon glitch!
Thank you so much!


  1. Kathy, I'm so glad you shared this on your blog. I know that this has to be so frustrating to you and your buyer/readers. I really hope that pulling the old edition will solve the problem for you.

  2. Hope all is fixed and soon but at least it was brought to your attention so it could be corrected.

  3. The book will be a valuable tool for teens and almost teens and their families. Thanks for all you do.

  4. Hi Kathy, Obviously, this book is SO needed... Our country (and all of this political correctness stuff) is so confusing to kids--trying to find 'their' identity.... Hope Amazon gets is straightened out soon... We love Amazon and use it constantly --but I wonder if, like so many other businesses, they are getting too big too quickly.... I'd rather have smaller, well-run businesses than HUGE ones with mediocrity.... (I read recently that Amazon now is going to have Grocery Stores...)

    Hope you are doing well.


  5. The trailer makes it sound very interesting, even for those of us who no longer have teenagers. I'm headed over to amazon right now.
