Review

"I've read a lot of books for young people, but his is the best one yet!" --Jack Canfield, Co-Author, Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul and Chicken Soup For The College Soul.

"This book is a real gem. In my opinion, it's a must read for all young people and anyone who cares about them-parents, friends, grandparents, etc. It's a mentor in a book" --Richard Carlson, PhD. Author of the "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff" Series

"Cool Stuff They Should Teach In School" is a manual all young people should have. I thought society had lost the 'vision.' Thankfully it appears it's only been misplaced and Kent and Kyle are spearheading a movement to bring it back" --Armchair Interviews, Book Review

From the Author

We’re facing an epidemic! Each year millions of students graduate from our schools and a startling percentage are totally unprepared for the real world.

We need to work together to motivate and educate young people to not only survive, but also thrive outside of the classroom. There are certain fundamentals that are necessary to win the game of life, but they are not being addressed in schools or at many homes today.

We know that young people are not "Dummies" or "Idiots" … we’re just uninformed. We believe that with the right tools, anyone can get the results they want in their life—and it’s all "Cool Stuff."

During the course or writing this book, the two of us have learned an immense number of priceless skills and other helpful information that has literally transformed our lives. We have put those skills and information into a unique format for other young people to enjoy.

It’s our goal to help others not only survive, but also thrive in the real world. We hope you enjoy our book.

Your Mates,

Kent & Kyle Healy

Kent Healy and Kyle Healy are smart, savvy young men who are brothers. They have taken the pulse of the "real world" and identified that kids are not equipped for living in the "real world."

The practical tips and logical advice they dispense is nothing new. Most adults know how difficult it is to navigate the world and try to tell their children the "facts." But then we also know that most kids think they're smarter than their parents are. It isn't until much later in life that they realize the value of adult wisdom. And by that time it might be too late.

But we also know that kids listen to other kids (do we need to revisit peer pressure?). With that fact accepted, Cool Stuff They Should Teach in School becomes even more valuable since it's advice delivered by young adults for young adults.

Kent and Kyle Healy systematically navigate the do's and don'ts of important issues like success, attitude, goals and habits, peer pressure, finances, employment and the lost art of consideration, kindness and manners.

I'd like to adopt these guys. First they sound like really nice young men. Secondly, their entrepreneurial savvy will make them rich enough to take care of themselves in a grand style but also their parents.

But most importantly, Cool Stuff They Should Teach in School is a manual all kids should have. I thought society had lost the "vision." Thankfully it appears it's only been misplaced and Kent and Kyle are spearheading a movement to bring it back.

Armchair Interviews says...Parents: BUY this book and if the kids read it and get it, it might save society and everyone will thrive in the process!

Finally! Why did it take so long to see such an initiative from two young adults? Yes, I've seen the Phd's and some gurus re-package their existing adult books and trying to apply them to teenagers.

We needed something that talks to us, from authors who can relate and understand us. I guess it is better late than never. I personally was getting very tired of role models who are airheads, dumb-dumbs, spoiled brats, superficial insta-stars dominating day & night time television and polluting our brain...

Cool Stuff and Kent and Kyle Healy are the role models we've been waiting for. They offer us much needed and very practical solutions to entering adulthood. They don't lecture. They simply share their experiences in a very personable tone making it easy for the reader to grasp the concepts and implement them in their own lives.

Kent & Kyle offer people the tools to make things happen... by developing their skills and talents... and having fun along the way.

Must read, regardless of age!

This book has given me the ability to identify goals and create strategies to achieve them. Since reading this book, I have seen a big improvement in my every day life because I have gotten in the habit of setting goals for myself. I took this book with me to college, and would recommend that every freshmen entering college keep it on the bedside table to refer to frequently. The authors make it very fun to read, and very easy to connect it to your own life. If you are going to read any book on how to succeed in life, this is by far the book I would recommend.

I just graduated from high school, and I was disappointed at first when my mom got me a book as a graduation present. Who wants a book right? WRONG. Cool Stuff is the most informative book I have ever read. I learned more in 5 minutes of reading it than the previous 18 years of my life. A MUST READ is the section on Managing the Green. It shows how easy it is to plan for the future without sacrificing having fun now. I will consult this book before every big decision I make in the coming years.

This book was a delight. Very enjoyable and informative from the first page to the last. I got this book as a gift over Christmas, and after reading it I bought all my friends a copy. This is a must get book for anyone in high school and college for answering many of the questions and offering advice that is completely useful.

After reading "Cool Stuff" I am convinced we are missing the boat with what our kids need to be taught to equip them for the real world. Unfortunately, "they" don't, but this book does. I am so impressed with the wisdom and practical advice Kent and Kyle Healy share in this book. I was expecting it to be good and a little different than the traditional success books, but I underestimated the impact this book would have on me-- especially since I am a few years past their target demographic. Life is full of waves and I am thankful for Kyle and Kent for better equipping me to surf them. I can't wait to share this with my three kids... maybe I can convince them I am cool. I definitely recommend this book. One other recommendation-- buy more than one copy because you will be torn wanting to keep it and to share it with someone else.

I picked up this book this week-end TO "BROWSE" and found myself into the book one hour later, still reading. WOW!!! I sure wish there would have been a book like this for my age group.But, I'm learning a thing or two even now with reading Kent and Kyle's book. This book is a must for any family with teens, pre-teens or adults still wanting to grow. I'm going to buy a copy for our church library, too. What an inspiration this book is-----for everyone! Thanks for writing it.
