Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up—In this practical and lively self-help title, the author argues that teens have six key decisions to make, and that their choices will make or break their futures. The decisions involve getting a good education, choosing true friends, getting along with parents, dating and sex, avoiding addictions, and establishing a healthy sense of self-worth. Covey provides tips for making and following through on each of these areas and delivers concise sound bites of advice peppered with colorful graphics, cartoons, and movie quotes. He supports his arguments with facts, statistics, and analysis. For example, in urging teens to stay in school and keep up their grades, he provides a chart of lifelong earnings based on the highest degree earned, as well as the money needed for a family. The author briefly addresses problems associated with the choices. For example, regarding school, he gives tips on dealing with stress, time management, learning disabilities, and preparing for college. He is frank in discussing sex and dating myths and the dangers of STDs and teenage pregnancy. This book covers typical self-help territory, but does so in a manner that teens will appreciate. Its downfall is its wide scope and the author's failure to cite most of his sources. However, the volume is not designed to be read straight through, and its quick and easy tips will appeal to most readers.—Jane Cronkhite, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH

Review

"This book is way better than Sean's first one, and that one was GREAT! Every teen in the world should read this book. And, oh yeah, it was really funny." -- Matt Klymocho, teenager

"This book will prepare teens to handle the pressure and make the right universal big decisions right now." -- Peyton Manning, quarterback, Indianapolis Colts, two-time NFL MVP, six-time Pro Bowler

"As hard as it is not to be biased, I can say without reservation that this is one remarkable book! The writing is entertaining and inspirational. A definite must-read for teens, and all those who raise, teach, and lead them." -- Stephen R. Covey, author of the #1 bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

"From one mother to another, I highly recommend that if you want a better future for your teens, you must have them read this book!" -- Candace Lightner, founder, Mothers Against Drunk Driving

"This book is perfectly written. I want all 74,000 students in our district to read it as well as their parents and all 6,000 teachers. I am trying to figure out how to make it required reading for all teens in Nashville." -- Pedro Garcia, Ed.D. educational administration; superintendent, Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools

"It's a rare thing to find such an innovative and inspirational book all rolled into one." -- Larry King
