Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Domina Daughtrey
This motivational guide for teens on how to become successful students covers a broad spectrum of information. The authors encourage teens to be responsible, proactive individuals in all areas of their lives. The ten chapters cover a variety of information, including why one should aspire to higher education, tips on how to perform better academically to get As, getting one's mind energized through health and fitness and personal development, and how to be savvy with money and credit. The action steps that follow each chapter encourage readers to examine their behaviors and incite thoughts on how they might improve these behaviors. For example, the action steps following the chapter about communication provoke thinking about how to improve nonverbal, verbal, and written communication; how to become an effective listener; and how best to resolve a situation in which someone has made rude remarks. Many high school students will benefit by the information this title has to offer, but it will be a difficult sell. Best taken in small doses, the text is long and somewhat monotonous to get through. Thus the students who would have the most to gain by reading this book will unfortunately be the least likely to read it. Reviewer: Domina Daughtrey
