The author offers helpful tips on the many issues we deal with once we turn adults. This book would be helpful for a senior in high school or young adult entering college or the work world. I have already lived through many of the situations he writes about, so I can see how this book would be great to have read before I ventured out. This a book you don't have to read from front to back, you could pick out the subject you are needing guidance and encouragement from. He also offers throughout the book, what he calls take five, offering you questions to help you reflect upon. This would make a perfect gift to give to a graduating high school student or college student.
