The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Jan 18, 2007
My 15 yr old son, who struggles academically LOVES this book. It's very encouraging & helpful. I think the fact that he says he loves it, says it all!
It really communicates to teens! Jan 4, 2007
As a teacher in a continuation high school leardership class I selected this book for students only after reading it. It was recommended to me and before reading it I was skeptical. I had read many other books that were written by adults for kids; most were condescending and used an adult's version of what kids might want to hear. This book is different. Sean Covey brilliantly speaks to students at their level. Covey has been able to remove the barrier between author and reader so often found in these "help" books. I have since purchased other books to review and none of them could capture the students in my class.
Seven Habits for Teens Jan 3, 2007
This is an excellent book for 10 yrs and above. My daughter loves the examples and illustrations. She was reading it at school and insisted we get it so she could add notes. -- Highly recommended.
Cartoons? Quotes? 128 pages? NOT Dec 22, 2006
This miniature edition, which I ordered by mistake, is nothing as advertised. There are no cartoons, quotes, it's short by about 20 pages, and the pages there are are tiny. When I opened it and scanned, I estimated the value to be 20 cents.
I ordered this as a Christmas present for a teen, so now I have to find something more appropriate. So little Sean is a chip off the old block, all ads and hype, no follow through. Is this an example of a successful teen? I guess the answer is yes, at least financially. I, on the other hand, will not be reading books by either Sr or Jr. Bah.
About the size of a matchbox Dec 20, 2006
I mistakenly ordered this book based on the reviews written here. Most people who wrote them didn't realize they were writing in the 'miniature edition' section. This book is a little bigger than a matchbox and not worth ten cents.
