Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Feeling like chaos rules your world? Ready to take charge of your life? Need a little kick in the pants? This pocket-sized paperback is jam-packed with inspiration to help you begin to steer your life, rather than drift through it. Based on Jay McGraw's bestselling inspirational guide, Life Strategies for Teens, this handy, hard-hitting (yet kind) collection of daily motivational truisms is straightforward and full of insight. The author blends concepts from his own book with quotations from the likes of Margaret Thatcher, Yogi Berra, and Aristotle. Each day is given a brief saying or question. July 27th's entry, for example: "The key to success is perseverance--getting the job done whether you feel like it or not." And October 19: "The door to an emotional prison locks from the inside." Young people at any stage of growing up will be sure to find dozens of relevant gems in this earnest, realistic, day-by-day life guide. (Ages 13 and older) --Emilie Coulter

Format: Paperback
Life Strategies for Teens is a superb book. If you have to choose between this book and that one, go for that one.
On the other hand, if you would like to reread the key ideas in Life Strategies for Teens, this book is a reasonably good resource for doing that. You would, however, benefit more by creating your own set of notes about Life Strategies for Teens that emphasizes that is most important for you to focus on. If that is hard for you to do, you could use this book as an outline from which you could abstract a briefer, and more relevant personal outline.
Most of the entries are devoted to the 10 Life Laws:
1. "You either get it, or you don't." January 26
2. "You create your own experience." February 27
3. "People do what works." March 16
4. "You cannot change what you do not acknowledge." March 29
5. "Life rewards action." May 8
6. "There is no reality, only perception." June 2
7. "Life is managed. It is not cured." July 9
8. "We teach people how to treat us." August 29
9. "There is power in forgiveness." October 4
10. "You have to name it before you can claim it." November 15
A section on the challenges of sex and drugs begins on December 11.
As you can see, making this a calendar presents something of a problem. Buy the book much past January 1, and you will feel strange reading it unless you wait until 2003 to start. A better design would have been to let you start whenever you got the book, and write in your own dates. But obviously, you can just write in your own dates and start whenever you get it.
I thought the better pages were the ones with questions to answer. Unfortunately, there were a lot fewer of these questions than in Life Strategies for Teens.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Counselor Hope on August 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
I am a counselor at a behavioral school and I decided to use this book, along with the workbook, to do several group sessions with my students. As I started to read the book, I was amazed by how well written it was. The language used is perfect for their understanding and uses lots of references that teens can apply! Great to use for anyone working with teens or for a teen to use on their own!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was not at all what I thought. I guess I should have done my research a little better. It turns out that this book had a spiritual/religious undertone to it that I had missed in the description. I had hoped to use this in a public high school classroom but had to think again. It is a good book but not what I had expected.

By Beholder on June 23, 2012
Format: Paperback
I also bought this book to use to work with teens in a treatment center. The really great thing about this book was that the teens would read it and then discuss it with me when I would come in for group therapy. It was interesting to them and it was worded in a way that they could understand and identify with it. The author did an excellent job of finding ways he could give them great examples. I could tell at times that they were reading ahead.
