Author Blurb Jordan McLaughlin (teenager)
If The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens doesn't help you, then you must have a perfect life already.

Author Blurb Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People
Unlike my book on the 7 Habits, this book by my son Sean speaks directly to teens in an entertaining and visually appealing style (and Sean, I never thought you listened to a word I said). As prejudiced as this may sound, this is a remarkable book, a must-read!

Author Blurb Steve Young, former Quarterback, San Francisco 49'ers
This book is a touchdown.

Best Book Ever
At the beginning of the book I was unsure of it because he had to make me promise to read the whole thing. After reading it I recommend it to teenagers or preteens...
