If you're a teacher trying to make an impact in your students' lives, PLEASE get them this book.
If you're a parent trying to raise a healthy, happy, successful young adult, PLEASE read this book AND get it for your kid!!
Look, I'm an in-betweener. I'm not a teenager anymore, and I'm not a parent yet. I'm 24 years old. And I'm writing this as a very hard-working, very successful and VERY happy young guy. I feel very blessed to live the life I live. But it didn't happen by accident and it wasn't always like this... I REALLY wish I had this book growing up.
I've made all the mistakes: social and academic. I started off as a typical nerd with no social skills, no girlfriends, no leadership skills, nothing. I eventually figured it out on my own over a period of several years, but most of my friends from that time didn't, and their teen years were very hard for them... If I had this book back then, I would have figured it all out in a week! And if those old friends of mine had read it, they probably would have better social skills at work now, and they never would have been bullied around..
Later on I was a popular kid, but I also hung out with the wrong people and my grades and my goals were suffering because of it. I can't even tell you how easy it would have been to slip off and become a junkie or to start flunking school just by listening to those people.
In this book, Yahya teaches you about those traps and how to avoid them. And you CAN have both successes, you can be well-liked socially and also focused on your goals, be healthy and fit, and get great grades. It's actually easy once you know how it works, but figuring that out is HARD! No one teaches you that!!Read more ›
Tell you what else is true: Yahya is true... True to himself and to his readers. You can identify with each one of his anecdotes and principles because they're sincere.
As teens we don't want to be talked TO, we want someone who talks WITH us... That's Yahya.
Even though he's sharing his own knowledge and experience, the book is still about you: The Reader. You can't go wrong with buying this book! I've learned a lot about myself and those around me by reading it.
Being present today, right now, making the right choices is the best thing we could do for our future. Yahya lets us in a few secrets to seizing life and becoming secure, happy and successful. So in many ways, this book is not about being a better teen, it's about being a remarkable human being.
Teenager, parent, friend, brother, sister, teacher... Whatever role you may play: Go for it!!!... there are so many of us that still don't understand teenage life. We seem to have survived it, when we should have embraced it.
Yahya talks to teens like he is their big brother, sharing the mistakes he has made personally and the mistakes he has seen others in his life make. In this way, he is able to explain things in such a way that I can't imagine teens getting defensive about taking his advice. If you have a teen at home who rolls his or her eyes when you try to give him or her advice, this book is definitely one you want to purchase and hand over to your special teen! While you're at it, buy a copy for yourself so you can delve into some of these topics with your teen as they go through the book!
