I like "Of Beetles and Angels" so much that I was curious about this book by the same author. He is now a motivational speaker for teens, and this is his system to help teens transform their lives. I liked the book a lot and think it would be a great tool for any young person, or even an old person, who's looking to become someone more than they are.

It was helpful. I read it because it was an assignment, but it was good nonetheless. I recommend it if you are going through tough times.

I'm there right now actually, but you know. In conclusion, it was a wonderful book.
This books talks about what success is and what u need to be successful in life and your future. How you can change and how u can get a better education in your life, its talks all about what you need and what you want.
This book really helps you when you have know place to turn or need help in life. The author Mawi Asgedom is a modavational speaker and in the book he uses some of his life examples to explain and prove pionts it is a pretty good book.
Inspiratif. Luar bisa, buku yang menggerakkan. Tiap selesai membaca satu babnya, tubuh seolah tidak dapat melawan semangat untuk berubah. And life become so wonderful!
