In short, this is not a book that talks down to the students or just outlines the goals and the right habits – that, after all, is the kind of nagging that they are exposed to regularly and which does little to help them improve or even understand their habits or practices. Instead, the book is a guide that makes it easy for young people to take control of their habits and chart their own path to improvement. It is definitely the kind of resource that I would like to have at my disposal as a middle school teacher.
