This book is a great work on dealing with life's challenges. If you're a teen looking for direction, a parent of a teen tearing your hair out, or anybody who could use thoughtful insight (and a good laugh) try this book.
The author draws from an abundance of experience working with the Boy Scouts and his church's youth groups to turn abstract ideas into real life solutions to life's little problems.
The format is a how-to manual for becoming a super hero with lessons on Strength, Courage, Self-Esteem and several other topics that make a hero. There's even a tongue-in-cheek quiz at the end of each lesson.
As an engaging, insightful, humorous and a very easy read everyone can take something from the Hero's Guide.

Everyday someone is watching you...can be scary...
But with the advice from this book you can be a hero for that someone!
It is the little things we do each day and the habits that we develop that turn us into hero's... or not...
The eight lessons in this book:
* Achieving heroic courage
* Being a heroic example
* Living a life of heroic service
* Learning heroic leadership
* Finding heroic confidence
* Enduring heroically to the end
* Developing heroic strength
* Learning to live by faith
This book was specifically written for the youth...but as a grown woman I learned quite a few things I need to work on :)
WONDERFUL information! TONS of exceptional stories!
I can't say enough good about this book!
A definite MUST read if you are interested in becoming a better HERO!
