Book Review - Decisionology: A Guiding Compass For High School Students
According to DoSomething.org, more than 60% of teens said that drugs were sold, used or kept at their school. They also state that teenagers whose parents helped prepare them for the threat of drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those whose parents do not.
With his new book, Decisionology: A Guiding Compass for High School Students, author Daniel P. Gates hopes to help educate teens on how to make the best decisions for themselves and their futures.
“Decisionology was written as a resource that can be used whenever young people encounter challenging decisions or choices,” says Gates. “It does not provide answers, but rather explains different types of decisions and the ways they can be approached in appropriate, effective ways.”
Addressing topics including college, driving responsibly and relationships, the book guides the reader through example scenarios and gives guidelines to the most positive way to make a decision.
My Take on the Book
This was a quick, insightful book that is written with the reader in mind. You get a true perspective of how young people can make good decisions within their lives. Beyond this though, the book also provided many valuable thoughts on important decisions and choices that will impact all young people, and helps them to filter out the noise, and focus in on what is most important. This is a book that I believe any teenager would greatly benefit from reading!
