In the preface Mr. Brain states:

"This is a book that I wish someone had handed me when I was 16 so that I could understand what was going on around me. Think of it as the Secret Handbook' that all successful adults carry with them. It explains the game of life. It shows you why adults do the things they do. It explains how the world works and how you will become a successful adult yourself".

Designed to help teenagers see the amazing freedom they have to control their lives and their destinies and, in turn, help them make good decisions. The Teenager's Guide to the Real World shows teens how to plan a path to success and clearly demonstrates what can go wrong, and will go wrong, if this path is missing.

    Typical Teenagers

    The topics discussed in this book are normal occurances in the teenage life. I would say that it is a good guide for the teens. It may not be not for those who intend on thinking beyond the principles displayed about certain topics or for others who have a very low understanding of the teenage life. I may be referring to the adults this book is a guide for the teens and adults may not accept or understand they same things because they are already fully developed. The fact is that adults are at a different level than the teenagers! Also some of the topics are probably refutable but there aren't many flaws. The sections about love and relationships display the true and agreeable feelings of a typical teenager. There is no doubt that this section doesn't portray the same thoughts of a teen. But for those who think beyond their average (or the mentally matured teens) this book may or may not relate or apply to their lives. It depends on what type of experience they might be having or already have had. Overall, I would recommend this book to those who need help or anyone who has an interest in it. It is a useful guide for teenagers since they are sometimes reluctant follow up or even listen to an older person. Thus this book is written as if it were from the perspective of a real teenager. Teenagers are eager to use a reliable guide and this just might be one.

    Stereotypical and outrageous

    Although many adults may find this book very 'challenging and uplifting' the teenagers who are intended to read it may find it highly stereotypical and degrading. In most examples of the book, Marshall Brain portrayed them as drug addicts, sex crazed, and alcoholics. He also made several generalizations that 'only teenagers pick up the habit of smoking, not adults'. The reader may find themselve staring at the book in disbelief. Also, many of the graph statistics are false, and based more upon his own opinion than anything. It would be recommended for only a teenager desperately looking for help. Either that, or skip to the parts that you find intersting.

    Great Book to Read!!!

    This is a book that you wouldn't miss if you are teenagers. This book offer you a wealth of information about adult world and I find it so true, you should read the book slowly and absord it. I'd bet you'll like it.

    A must for any Teen looking for guidance

    I am an 18 year old girl that truly enjoyed this book. It is an encouraging title to any teenager who is looking for guidance, self confidance, and a little information about the real world. I related to the author a lot and this helped me greatly. Read this book. Especially right before you go to college.
