Aside from being a bit outdated with technology, I thought this was excellent book for librarians working with young adults. It provided realistic solutions and great ideas that would adapt in the real world.

I like Jones's style - he combines personal experience with research in a manner that's interesting, relevant, and informative. This book is especially useful paired with Do It Right! which brings in more ideas from his own experiences working in teen services.
