Review:

This is an amazing book filled by insights from a lifetime of experience by its author Carl Sommer. He had such passion for education that he took a year off to spend time in the tough schools of New York City, teaching every grade as a substitute teacher.[Sommer] has distilled his life experiences into a motivational book for Teenagers, somehow managing to avoid putting them down and alienating them. He shows them a better way, drawing on the great examples of famous Americans and the values they espoused. --Brian Cheyne, Former Head of Department, Educational Guidance at Jeppe High School

This book has ALOT of information and a great variety. I was impressed.I work with kids every day and it reinforced the basics of character development and planning for the future for these students. --Patricia Benson, School Administrator

I completed the book Teen Success In Career and Life Skills and thoroughly enjoyed it. Before I was an administrator I taught a course called Career Visions. I would have used this book in the class. There are also parts that I would use as an administratoryour parents can be your best counselors. You speak to the kids and tell them things that they may not want to hear. These are all things that educators, parents and relatives want to tell kids. Ive also coached for many years. There are many teachable moments, but only if teens can get beyond their proud and stubborn attitude and listen to the advice given to them. They do hate to be corrected! And they hate for anyone to get in their face Youre right, this is straight talk. If they dont want the truth, they shouldnt read it. However, I do believe that if a book is telling them these things they are more apt to listen because they dont have to admit they are getting something out of it.We have something at our school called Silent Sustained Reading that lasts for 30 minutes every day. Its purpose is to help improve our students reading skills and interest. This would get their attention. I think that you have created a very effective tool for teens. --Cathy Leaver, Assistant Principal, Newfound Regional High School
