“If The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens doesn’t help you, then you must have a perfect life already.”–Jordan McLaughlin, Age 17
If I had to recommend one book for teenagers to read, this would be it. So many kids waste away their high school years when they should be planning for the future. This book will help those teens who want to be prepared for life after high school succeed in life. What Covey offers here is a proven success model that works. The author speaks directly to teens in easy, comfortable, straight forward style that connects with teenagers and he uses stories that bring his points home. He gives lots of tips and advice that they can not only take to heart but apply to their lives. He touches on improving relationships, honing leadership skills, and accessing the tools they will need to realize their dreams.
