Apparently the idea for this book was taken from a speech the author gave to some college graduates (I think) about "how to ruin your life by 40" but was later adapted to target a younger crowd. It's a short read (about 90 pages) and while it's not perfect, overall I liked the book. It is definitely Christian oriented and I honestly don't think it would appeal much to non Christians. The only part I can think of off hand is a section about how everyone makes mistakes and that some of the most influential people in the Bible made huge mistakes earlier in their lives (like Moses killing a man in Egypt, and Paul killing Christians back before he actually became one later), but they didn't allow their mistakes to stop them from doing good things later on (for God). One of the more interesting sections took a view on dating that asked the question "what if the person you are dating right now will be someone else's wife later on? How would you treat that person's future wife, and how would you want someone who could be dating yours right now to treat the woman you might marry?" Of course it goes on to say that believers should only date other believers and quotes sections of the Bible to go with that, but it was a different way to look at the subject than the one I'm used to. Not perfect, but still worth a (quick) read.

Really liked the book. VERY quick read. Thought the chapters on cause and effect, taking responsibility and sex and marriage were extremely well done.

Why cant you have a happy life without god.? Becase a happy godless life is possible. This book is not for the nonreligious folks.
