The Barefoot Warrior,
This review is from: The Barefoot Warrior: The Journey of a Young Adult in Search of His True Nature (Paperback)
Reading the back cover, I was hopeful that this book could help reach troubled young people (and parents!)that I regularly counsel. After reading it through, I was sure of its remarkable potential. It captures the reader from the first paragraph and sets a pace that keeps one at Kyle's side each moment. Kyle is a very approachable teen with a unique background that young people can identify with, understand and role model. It reveals the "dead end" of the all-to-typical teen response and maps out a realistic course for growth in a troubled world. Author Scott Edmund Miller provides a number of remarkable insights that are very "hands-on" useful for young readers, parents, educators, counselors, psychologists and others dealing with the challenges facing young people today. Though it is fiction, it has many very clear messages about a very highly stressed portion of our population. I have also just read author Miller's non-fiction "User's Guide to Being Human". Now this book is an amazing revelation about how we can all expand the inate human capacities that rest unused inside each of us, adults and young alike! I am ordering the companion exercise books now. Thank you Scott Edmund Miller!
