Excellent Book! May 26, 2010
This book is written by teenagers, for teenagers. However, it has a powerful message for any age. It is a wake up call to shed our limitations and find our potential. I have already given copies of it to several young people before they head off to college.
Excellent May 24, 2010
This is a wonderful book for teens and adults. It is never too late to step up to your full potential. I received the book from the seller in great time and and excellent condition.
Inspirational for all ages Apr 17, 2010
I'm an adult, and I loved this book. I only wish it had been around to read when I was a teen. Alex and Brett Harris, teens themselves when writing this book, will inspire readers of all ages to change the world by starting with their own little corner of it. There are plenty of stories about real teens, past and present, who have accomplished remarkable things. If they can do it, so can you. Lest you think this book is only for and about honor roll, type-A over-achievers, they also talk about what do to when you fail and kids who have overcome real obstacles, like intense fear of public speaking. Part of "doing hard things" is taking risks and getting outside of your comfort zone.
As a youth worker, I plan to apply the concept of high expectations to the kids I work with. As the parent of a toddler, I will definitely hang on to this book to give to my daughter when she is older. I would strongly recommend that parents also read this book so that they can discuss it with their teen.
This is AMAZING Apr 9, 2010
The title of the book automatically sends a challenge. Do Hard Things. Inside the book we find the younger twin brothers of Josh Harris [I kissed dating goodbye] talking about the low expectations put on teenagers and how we shouldn't bow to that stereotype. They have a battle cry for teenagers to DO HARD THINGS
A truly amazing book Mar 28, 2010
Do Hard Things is one of the best books that I have ever listened to (or read). I have listened to it through twice now and I am still learning new things. This book sets before teens the truth that the teen years (between thirteen and nineteen) are not the time to goof-off and party, but a time to get ready for the future. Not only that but it sets before teens the fact that they can do harder things than the people and coulter around them expect. By favorite parts in the book are the examples the authors give of how ordinary teens did extraordinary things, both in the past and in the present. Well, I don't want to spoil Do Hard Things for you by going on and on about it, but I just wanted to strongly encourage you to listened to this awesome book.
