Kids today are at risk for becoming disconnected from their own learning and even from themselves in the high-pressure academic culture they're steeped in. Geared for high school students but useful for college undergraduates as well, this book will give budding young adults the opportunity to catch their breath and focus on their character, reflect on what is meaningful to them, learn how to create balance in themselves and in their lives, and work towards short-term and long-term goals that grow out of their own unique sets of strengths and interests. The essential intrapersonal knowledge that this practical book elicits will help students become life-long learners and grow into responsible, caring, and productive individuals.
