I didn't join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when President Gordon B. Hinckley was the Prophet. So, I feel this was a great book to get to know him a bit better. He has such great insight and personal experiences in the little booklet. Besides, nine is a number which I connect with. So, I wanted to read his 9 ways to understand where in the areas I can improve in. It turns out I have many areas of improvement, especially all. I recommend this fun, insightful, and efficiently thorough read to a teenage friend of mine. I know they are going to love this dearly beloved Prophet of the Lord because I find He is one of the many quoted by this servant of the Lord.
It's awesome. It helped my testimony a lot.
This is an excellent book for pre-teen, teenagers, whether member or non-member. I believe the teen years can be very difficult, but President Hinckley has written this GREAT guidebook for teens, much as he did with 'Standing for Something' for adults. I think the teens should read it, and then pass it on to their parents to read!
