About the Book
With more than five million copies in print all around the world, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens is the ultimate teenage success guide—now updated for the digital age.

Imagine you had a roadmap—a step-by-step guide to help you get from where you are now, to where you want to be in the future. Your goals, your dreams, your plans…they are all within reach. You just need the tools to help you get there.

That’s what Sean Covey’s landmark book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, has been to millions of teens: a handbook to self-esteem and success. Now updated for the digital age, this classic book applies the timeless principles of the 7 Habits to the tough issues and life-changing decisions teens face. In an entertaining style, Covey provides a simple approach to help teens improve self-image, build friendships, resist peer pressure, achieve their goals, and get along with their parents, as well as tackle the new challenges of our time, like cyberbullying and social media. In addition, this book is stuffed with cartoons, clever ideas, great quotes, and incredible stories about real teens from all over the world.

An indispensable book for teens, as well as parents, teachers, counselors, or any adult who works with teens, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens has become the last word on surviving and thriving as a teen and beyond.

My Take on the Book
WOW, I wish that this book had been around when I was a teenager. I remember reading the original 7 Habits book when I was a teen, but in placing myself in the mind of a teenager again, this book really connects on a deeper level with the teen and helps bring home the points that are shared. I was VERY impressed with the layout and the content and can see this making a HUGE impact on not only the effectiveness of teens, but even more than that, the future success that they will find for themselves too. The book was a fun read and has so many valuable tips that can be used by teens and adults alike. The book is honest and to the point and makes the learning real through the practical, real-life stories that are shared with the reader. You get advice that you can implement right away, and this, I believe, is one of the most important parts of the book overall.
