Secondly some of the anecdotes in the book are not aging well even though this was just updated in 2014.
I did not like the references to dieting and weight loss in the beginning. I would have preferred the focus to be on health and healthy eating and not on a vanity metric... I'm not looking to give my teen a complex about food or appearance. Thankfully there seems to be just a few references and it's not a big portion of the book so far.
There is a pretty appalling anecdote about how black people need to stop saying they are being held back by racism. Given everything that's happened in the last 3 years or so, that's just not accurate or helpful or improving the conversation.
The the advice is generally helpful, but I suggest parents carefully read through the anecdotes and examples because a lot of it is pretty politically charged in my opinion.

He said it is very amusing and can relate to most of the things in there.
So I guess that means he isn’t a alien from out of space that we thought he was.
He said it was a great book and would recommend it to teens.
I’m yet to read it
