Great for teenagers
by Whitney - reviewed on December 02, 2007
My parents got me this book when I was a cranky teenager. It's great because you can open to one page and read it instead of having to read in order. I wouldn't recommend the CD of this--it's just a recording of his voice with some sound effects. His talks on CD are way better than his books on CD.
Great little book!

Like all of John Bytheway's work, this book is awesome. I love John's insights and his ability to teach without being "preachy". His style is very fun and inspiring.

I found this book to be completely hilarious and sad. The material was presented in a humorous way,but it is so very sad that it is so very true. I highly recommend this book!

This book is hilarious! It is a good read especially if your outlook on life is not very positive.
Only John Bytheway can put things into perspective in ways we can understand.

In his introduction, John Bytheway states that in "this life, sufering is mandatory, but misery is optional". Just the start of eye opening thoughts. I highly recommend!
