This is a wonderful book for youth. Have read it many times and have been encouraged everytime.
This book is a gem that I refer to often when I need encouragement about how to handle the various challenges in life. The guidance about love and relationships is particularly inspiring and has given me hope and courage to develop new and deeper relationships with people.
Mr. Ikeda has really touched on the importance of youth with this book. It was very easy to read and as an adult helped me to be able to understand youth better. I have had the pleasure of reading some of Mr. Ikedas' other work, but this really touched my life and made me think of questions that I had as a young person, but, were never answered until now. I recommend this book to Parents, Young Adults, and anyone with love in their hearts for this World we live in. Remember, Youth Are The Hope Of The World.
Created from the popular 'Discussions on Youth' series in the World Tribune (America's premier weekly Buddhist newspaper), this new book by Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, president of the Soka Gakkai International, is an excellent collection of Ikeda's responses to the questions of today's young people. 'The Way of Youth - Buddhist Common Sense for Handling Life's Questions' includes topics such as how to build confidence and character, learning to respect both yourself and those around you, developing lasting happiness from within, dealing with peer pressure and ways to contribute to a happy, free and peaceful society. Although Dr. Ikeda is the current leader of the world's largest Buddhist organization, this book is written for a general audience and will appeal to both teens and parents regardless of their religious background. As Arun Gandhi, grandson and founding director of the Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence recently said - 'The Way of Youth is an outstanding guide to humanity. I recommend it to all who seek self-improvement.'
