    Graham Truly Knows How to Grab a Teenager's Attention, and Keep It in This Book, with Spaces for Teens to Take Notes, Ponder Their Lives with Tough Life Questions

    As a parent myself of a 17 year old young woman, I can appreciate how many other independent authors wish to publish self help books for teenagers, teaching about confidence, self esteem and how to best succeed in life. However, in order to grab a young reader's attention and keep it throughout a book, an author truly needs to know how to talk to teenagers, how to really get their attention. I believe Stedman Graham knows how to do this, and do this well, in his book "Teens Can Make it Happen." He uses easy to understand language, asks tough questions of teens, like "Name a fear you have and why is this a fear for you?" and "What do you want to accomplish in your life and why do you want to achieve these goals?" and uses simple step by step lists, charts, and plenty of extra spaces in the many pages of this book to allow teenagers to jot down their dreams and hopes and plans. Graham's book for teens is uniquely created for the purpose of now just showing teens a guide of how to succeed in life, but giving them the exact tools and guidelines and exercises to help them devise a solid game plan with confidence. I cannot wait for his visit to Cleveland, Ohio July 23rd, where he will be giving a free speaking engagement at the Q arena on behalf of the University of Phoenix.

    Parents and Educators Can Encourage Teens and Students to Succeed

    Stedman Graham takes his wit and determination from the ever popular You Can Make It Happen for adults and creates an easy to read step-by-step success process for teenagers. As a parent myself, I know the challenges of raising a healthy emotionally teenager, who often slips into the dark side of unworthiness and peer relationships. Graham recognizes the often tender, yet erratic emotional rollercoaster that teens experience. From concise summaries of each step to graphic organizers and images of success circles, and plenty of room to jot down answers to such questions as "What do you want to accomplish in your life?" and "Make a list of ten goals that will help you pursue your vision," Graham takes each step in the success plan and breaks it down even further, so that teenagers can easily understand how to turn small goals into big accomplishments. I recommend this book to parents of teens, pre-teens, teachers, coaches, youth leaders and anyone else who wants to help teens become successful in their lives.
