Read full description of the books:
I'm older than the target age for this book (15 - 25 year olds), but still found some good food-for-thought in here.
One complaint, though. There's a chapter about dealing with your parents. No mention is made of what to do if you come from an abusive/dysfunctional family. For instance, he talks about how the power shifts from the parents to the young adult as he/she becomes more independent. That's great, but what if you come from a family that holds a death grip on the young person, and never intends to let go? The kind of family that doesn't even let a kid pick out his own laundry soap, let alone his career or choice of wife? Did the author just assume that everyone comes from a healthy family situation? Because that's not the case for a lot of people, and telling some young people to "just be patient, your parents will give you more autonomy as time goes by" could actually be destructive. There are some parents who will never give their child autonomy if it's up to them.
