provides eyes opening/perspective changing ideas

Helps a person such as I, who has had minimal social interaction see the social world from different lens which will enrich your social interactions...but you must be proactive and do your part...put yourself out there and see/experience the difference.

Self-Discipline is Achievable

I liked that the author not only presented theory but also important steps to achieving self-discipline. It is a key component of success. A well-written book. I pretty liked it. It is not an "I am the master of the universe" kind of book, but more a good opera made by a professional that has solved the very same issues first and now tries to share his insight. At least, this is the feeling I had listening to this. Props.

Good information!

This workbook has good information I can share with my clients. As an older therapist, it is sometimes difficult for teens to trust what is reviewed during sessions. This book helps to reinforce the information since it is written in the voice of being from one teen to another.

Impractical advice

I wouldn't try some of the advice such as the "repetitive technique". You will definitely sound stupid or the person you're talking to will feel you think they're stupid for repeating your reasons over & over. Another advice re what to say when you arrived late at work. It suggested to stop giving excuses like traffic is heavy. Instead say "I did not take care of my car...". That sounds irresponsible, not a wise advice. Most of the advice, you really just need to use common sense. Some advice sounds confrontational or insulting.
