Overview

Here is a complete guide to mature, responsible, even noble behavior in our complex modern society. Written in the 1930s by a wise Jesuit priest and steeped in the wisdom of the ages, these pages teach young people the timeless principles that have led countless souls to true success and lasting happiness.

Here is a good man’s canny advice to teenagers and young adults — advice that shows them how to deal with the practical problems faced by all those who strive to live their lives nobly and well.

They’ll learn how to discipline their imagination so it won’t lead them astray; how to tell the critical difference between pleasure and happiness; and how to strengthen their will to ensure that they always choose the good.

Without condescension, Fr. Garesché shows young people how to maintain a healthy mind, resist temptations, grow temperate, practice fortitude, think kindly of others, and choose worthwhile amusements. He even explains to them how to accept criticism graciously and how to develop in themselves the kind of confidence that is not rooted in pride, but is the necessary foundation for any life that will be productive and holy. Once young persons assimilate the wisdom here, they’ll know how to find genuine success — the success that transcends money, fame, and pleasure.

“Presents wisdom for achieving true success and lasting happiness for Christians of all ages.”
