Because this book encapsulates the lessons and stories, that will educate and light a fire under your ass at the same time, that are valuable regardless of the fact that the people writing it are young.
I have a long reading list, and it's rare I bump something to the top in front of other great titles. But I'm glad I did - and you will be too.
