Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed Letters from Grampy. I will save it for my grandson. It may need some revisions, or possibly replacement with a sequel to include new advice when he learns to read. I believe that Grampy's message is valuable for parent's and for teacher's. There are many ways revealed that a young person can improve their chances of becoming a successful adult, and actually reaching adulthood. I reflected on some of the wisdom that Grampy imparts, and realize how lucky I have been to make it to the age that I have a grandchild. I note that Grampy places value on penmanship, and I totally agree. I was recently disappointed to read that our educational system in many areas is deleting this from the curriculum. I suppose that we may only be able to communicate by "texting" in the future, unless we follow Grampy's suggestions. This book will make an excellent gift. I suggest that it be presented at a time other than one normally reserved for gift-giving. The price is far below it's value. The content is priceless.

Format: Paperback
Letters from Grampy: Advice to Make the Most of Your Teen Years is a helpful set of letters addressed to teenagers, from a successful business owner, husband, parent, and grandparent who wishes to pass along his wisdom. Written in a down-to-earth friendly tone that informs without patronizing, Letters from Grampy covers everything from dating and relationships to making the most of one's education to getting involved in the community and more. Packed with practical, user-friendly wisdom, Letters from Grampy is especially recommended for young people ages 12 to 15. "Having the reputation of always being late is not a good reputation to have. In business, it is particularly important to be on time, and the boss and all the other workers who are on time notice those who aren't. In the military, being on time is essential, and not being on time is not tolerated. There is no such thing as being fashionably late in the military."

I read this book and decided to give it to our 14 year old grandson. Almost all teenagers would benefit from this book. It is well written and full of good sensible information.

Gave one to each of two of my Grandsons. Report from one is that the book is going to help him greatly. I would recommend this book to any young teen and some preteens.
