Whether a business plan, a personal schedule, or a wilderness trek plan, great ideas only have results when they are executed. That's the secret: execution, execution, execution. That's why this book is so valuable--it gives fun, practical, meaningful ideas and examples that focus on execution. We'll definitely be reading it at Williamsburg Academy. --~James C. Ure, Esq., Headmaster, Williamsburg Academy
This a MUST READ for today's youth and their parents! Don't let the word TEENS in the title fool you. This book gives enormous perspective for all ages of people. We live in difficult times, our children have a big task ahead of them. DeMille and Brooks have prescribed usable, inspiring medicine for the maladies of our modern society and written them in a way everyone can understand. --~Nicholeen Peck, international parenting guru, author of Parenting A House United --Teaching Self Government
Every once in a while a second witness comes along and in one magical moment says something that speaks truth to the soul and the hearer--finally--remembers who he is. That is what Oliver DeMille and Shanon Brooks have done. They remind us who we are and what we're about. --~Tiffany Earl, author of Say*Go*Be*Do, Mentor to thousands of youth through LEMI Scholar Projects --Leadership Education Mentoring Institute (LEMI)

Because I wanted to be able to discuss the book with him, I picked it up when he was on the last chapter and read it to him. I found it extremely inspiring. The whole idea that when a change is needed in the world, God or the Universe sends a baby, really touched me. It confirmed to me what I have always known about my son--that he has a definite purpose and mission in his life (as do all children).
Now that I have gone back through the book from the beginning, I am impressed with the way the authors encourage our youth to take responsibility for their own educational choices. By no means is the list of 100 books intended to be the the end all, be all of reading, nor are the age groupings set in stone. It is merely meant as a guide for those who struggle with what to read at any given point. Obviously there will be books that a child has already read on the list or will be able to handle earlier than suggested. It is left entirely up to the reader whether to take them or leave them, substituting their own preferences as they see fit.
The drawback of any book like this one is that it is written from one perspective. This is evident, as it is assumed that the reader is already sold on the ideas shared in previous books about Thomas Jefferson Education and Leadership Education. When you take that into consideration, this book is a good companion to others written by the DeMilles and his flock.
