This book helps teens tune their lives for happiness. This book helped me put things into perspective, and I realized what I need to work on in my life. Highly Recommended!

I was tired of battling with my teen... instead of punishment for poor attitude, I redirected them through reading this book a chapter at a time - then discussing it together... abd now we are working through more together. Can't complain about that!

I would recommend this book to all teens. It offers insight and guidance and lets us see things from different point of views that we may not have seen before. This book is very helpful and definitely well put together. Highly recommended!

My daughter's class used this book to help seventh graders look at their lives and try to organize themselves. She found that working through the book was so rewarding that she continued on her own at home by completing the acompanying workbook. The book provides a great foundation for discussion with your maturing kids.

The reason why I first read this book was because I had lied to my parents when I was in 7th grade and this book caught my dad's eye so he wanted me to read it. When I started reading it, I had an extremely closed mind and even before I had barely started it I decided that I wasn't going to like it. Then, very slowly, I started to like it and listen to what Sean Covey was saying. By the end, I was sad that it was over. Now, I'm going to be a sophomore and I have already re-read it and gave it to my younger sister for her to read. The second time around, it was even better! I really loved this book! I also liked how it had cartoons and stories in it to make it interesting! All teenagers should read this book!!!!

I wanted my son to read this book so I purchased 2. One for me and one for him and we are reading it together and I have him answer questions after each chapter. I am really enjoying the book. My son thinks of it as homework so I am not sure how much he is getting out of it but I know he will get something out of it.

I'm 15, and I absolutly LOVED this book! I couldn't stop reading! It is perfect, I felt like he was accually talking to the reader and truly sharing. I would and HAVE recommended this book to any teenagers! No matter how great your life is.

This book is very motivational. It teaches teens how to deal with the pressure and hardships of their life. This book helps teens to realize that no matter how horrible their life may seem, there is always someone who treads a darker, harder road. I would reccomend this book for anyone, even adults, becuase you learn self control, self improvement, and most of all, to love your life. Anybody could use a bit of comfort! The only problem is that Sean Covey may give the impression that a teen has to be perfect. However when reading this book you will realize that he does not mean for you to be pristine, just to improve yourself so you can shine.

first time i tried reading the book, i was like, oh no this guy's judging me and i wont let him do it. so i slammed it shut and tried to never flip through it again. until finally, some comments bugged me hard on certain soft spots and i gave in. FINE! so i read and read, and man was he right. now that i gave in to let his words sink in,i realized it was kind of funny, when you really think about it. i really recomend this book to people of all ages. this book will give you wise advice and great realizations in life. it's funny, 'real ', and very informative. you definitely will enjoy the book.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens By: Sean Covey For a grade I give this book an A+. This book changed my life. I read it because I had to. At first, I thought this book was going to be stupid. As I read it I soon had noticed how successful this would be to me and realized that I was already changing. It provided me with advice on how to get through life, making friends and study skills. It talked about how to treat people the right way. My grades where getting better, and I was actually doing good in school. This book motivated me to do well and I have achieved many things because of it. I recommend this book to not only teens but to anyone out there who can read.

I read this book for a book report in English. At first I was just reading it to get it over with, but then I got into it. I could relate my life to this book much more easily than to other books similar to it. I have read a couple of the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books, but none of them were as good as this one. I really enjoyed this book, and I leared a lot from it. I honestly think I have become a better person becuase of this book.

I had to read this book as a Sophmore for school, and I thought I was going to hate it. But it was written for teenagers in language they actually understand. I highlighted information I wanted to use and it helped me a lot. My self esteem boosted because I realized 'I can' do the things I wanted to do in my life. Looking back, now a Senior, this was something I needed to give my self esteem the extra push it needed. I'm highly confident now and I rule the world! (Well my world anyways) I'm giving this to my 8th grade brother for Christmas...I know he'll appreciate it as much as I did

The reason why I read the book is because it was a class requirement on my booklist. At the beginning I thought it was going to be a dull book but when I actually read the book it helped me out a lot. I think this book is really an ultimate success guide for teenagers. I would recommend this book to all the people who think life is a joke and don't take responsibility for their life.

Every parent should pick up a copy of this book! Teaching teens the importance of a good self-image, as well as tips on how to resist peer pressure is a priceless asset for teenagers. Very few books of this calibre are available and I would strongly recommend it for teachers, counselors, or any adult who works with teens.

I am 26 and I remember reading this book 7 years ago. I was having troubles throughout Jr. High and High School and within my own family.  I had a lot going on and not knowing in what direction to turn to.  I was heading down a miserable path.   Finally I visited my high school counselor and talked to her about my troubles and she asked me what I wanted to do.  I told her what I wanted out of life and she recommended this book to me.  She had me read this book each chapter I had to read  and write down the questions and answer these questions honestly of what I thought and turn it in to her when I was done and we would talk about each chapter and what it meant to me.   This was something that I was to do in my own time.  I chose to read this book and fell in love with it.  It made me feel as though I could accomplish my goals and look into a better light of things.  This book definitely changed me and made me who I am today.  I am always looking to better myself and follow these steps.  I recommend this book to any teenager who wants to change their habits and see a path that anything is possible.

This book is saying things that i have thougth about and how i feel. I belive that all are even some teenagers can relate to this book. am only 14years old .and yes everything this book said is what your thinking about doing or your doing. If you not judgeing you ok i got nothing to do about it. Yes i know every teenager got so mad at your mom and dad so bad that you wish what will life be like if they did not have you yes its normal to feel that way we all have. If your a teenager you need to read this book to encorege you. So far it has encorge me and made me look at myslfe for secound. Dont read the bad rates they dont know what they are talking about. READ THIS BOOK please its good for you.

I read this a looong time ago when i was 15.. i remembered it helped me so much as a teenager. I was going thru a rough patch as many high schoolers do, & it helped to see what was important & got my head back out if a funk. It was assigned for my leadership class & im so glad that it was. I still have my copy 15 yrs l8r & im thinkin of reading it again as my oldest is turning 11 i want to refresh on it & have him read it soon. Maybe it will help me again. I will surely have all 4 of my kids read it. Ill probly hav my sitter read it too:)
