In my case, a certain chapter which was marked really made the whole world make sense to me. It ...more
Okay, I think the majority of the world's teens will not read this. Maybe adults, but not teens. This is the 21st century people, teens don't want a book telling them how to manage their lives. If they can't even listen to their parents what makes you think they'll listen to a book? The majority don't even like reading. I'm already seeing this, they ...more
It has amazing principle for living the effective life, and whenever I read it, I feel like all that Sean talks about is within reach, is achievable. I absolutely love the cartoons of gangly teens that riddle the book, illustrating what's being discussed. Sean's style of writing in this book is so hilarious, and it makes an enjoyable read. It's not just some self-help book that preaches at you on how to change, but more of a journey to greatness. ...more
After having started this book in class, I decided that I wanted to read this book on my own time, and really analyze and digest the contents of this book.

If you know me well, you'd know that I'm not a huge fan of self-help books, but this, I thought it was brilliant. It hits right on the center of a problem. It was surprisingly funny and I loved it! His sarcasm and humor were AMAZING. Every teen should read this book. No kidding.

I have always loved guide books, books that I could always go back to. Because of this I have read many different guide books, and honestly, many of them were very repetitive. I couldn't find a very interesting book to read, but then suddenly, I saw Michelle Wong, a fellow classmate of mine, reading this book. I couldn't help but flip through it, and it was truly a book that was meant for a teen. Even ...more
