Review by shellyamendola
This is one of the best books for teens that I have come across. My 15 yr. old is having a challenging time and I bought this for her. Jay gives wonderful, realistic advice for teens.
Review by lvelazqu2000
Jay McGraw tried to make the ten life laws concepts understandable and included useful stories to help clarify each concept. Most of the time I thought his approach of anecdotes and metaphors were good and at other times I thought certain sections were long winded with too much explanation. I think this book would be a good recommendation for students to follow a step by step plan to improve their life, which is written from a young adults point of view.
