He throws in a crash course on the 7 habits of highly effective teens as well as a list of his families favorite movies to boot.
I found this book when I was searching for wisdom to address the issue of porn which is being made so widely available to youngsters through the net, the cell phones and even the PSPs. My son was being exposed to it at school and becoming curious.
I wanted to find another voice to add to mine to wise up my son so that he can see that as a choice to avoid and understand the reasons to resist such a powerful allure. Well, Covey addresses that issue with wisdom. Reading that (small but informative) section prompted me to read the entire book (which I stayed up all night to accomplish) I highly recommend this book as an antidote to the "anything goes" and "everybody wins" cultural messages.
You will not be disappointed.

This book is not only solid in its content, but admirably accessible to its intended audience. This really is a book which changes people's lives - at an age when they have the opportunity to make a major positive contribution to our ailing world, and plenty of time to do so.
I gifted this book to a friends daughter and will update this review about her opinion on it.
