I actually think it would be great material for 16-18 year old students - but probably best understood by college prep students. I had the pleasure of attending one of Chamine's Stanford lectures and his personal delivery of this material can be powerful. Of course this kind of material is not earth-shatteringly new. It is "the same old stuff" delivered in a new and different way. But anything that helps a young person understand that they can control their feelings, as opposed to being controlled by those feelings, is a step in the right direction. I wish I had read this book whenI was in high school.
