I read this book in 7th grade at the age of 12, and I loved it. I thought it was very well-written and witty.Now, as a 19 year old, I recently finished rereading this book just because I found it as I was cleaning out my bookshelf, and I have to say...it's not bad, but it's not that good. I think, perhaps, as the author was aiming for a lower age bracket, he accidentally aimed a little too low.Here's my breakdown:Pros: - Book is much shorter than the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People yet still conveys the same ideas. - The writing style is pretty straightforward. - It offers a lot of examples from teens and a lot of illustrations.Cons: - Book becomes more and more condescending as it goes on. - At some points, there are just too many examples, and many are rather impersonal--they don't offer the kind of detail that would make a reader actually care. Some of the examples even contradict the Habits. - A lot of the illustrations are kind of lame (I remember thinking this back at the age of 12, as well). The charts are fine, but most of the cartoons on the side just aren't funny. - The information in the book is all very intuitive.I think I will read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to see how I feel about it. As for the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, I have to say...1) Do not force a teen to read a self-help book. I've seen that in most of the negative comments, people were forced to read this book for a class in school. I think doing so even goes against the Habits. If you genuinely care about someone's problems, maybe read through the Habits yourself and practice them.
