GIVEAWAY and Review: What I Wish I Knew at 18 Book



My Thoughts: 

It is starting to seem like it was a long time ago that I was 18, but I can still remember it like it was yesterday. I think one of the strong points this book has going for it is the approach to writing and how it is written to as if the author were having a conversation with the reader. There are 109 pointers that the author shares with the readers that are all about 2 pages in length, so it can be a book that is put down and picked up whenever it is convenient or if they just want to see what he has to say about a specific point. I could see this as being given as a graduation gift, although at 18 I am not sure how much time I would have taken to sit down and read it. Maybe, I can't really say. I think it is easier to think back about what you wish someone would have told you, but the issue really is are you ready to hear it (from a person or a book). If a young adult does pick up this book, there are several pointers that will probably stick in the back of their mind and help guide them.

I would give this to my daughter who does not listen to me because she already knows everything.

I would have both of my kids, 18 and almost 17 read it. I think it would be a great eye opener for them, since they're at that age where they're pretty certain they're smarter than us old foggies!
