This was a great book. It was organized in a way that was easy to know what to expect of it.

It used a simple language to explain its concepts.  I liked the examples it had, very appropriate for the age target, and the wisdom tales were so beautiful.

It was divided in two sections. The first one, core beliefs, oriented to understand where self-esteem comes from and how it’s in our hands. And the second, power-filled choices that helps to understand how to deal with the struggles we find in life. Each section contains principles that are very clearly explain. The way the sections were divided in learn, explore, become and affirm was very enlightening


Even though it was oriented to teenage, I think it can be useful, not only to that group but to any other readers. The examples and general language might be oriented to a younger public, but the concepts were universal and any reader can get great knowledge from it.


It was a very insightful book, I think it is important that the person who read it it’s willing to work and to deal with difficult emotions. It is not a book to be read in a hurry, it’ll take time and effort to get something out of it, but I think it can be very useful in someone willing to do it.


Overall it was is a good book, but its possibility of success remains in the hands of the reader. I would recommended not only to teens, but also to people who work with them, maybe in an educational, social or any other ambit. I also think any reader, regardless the age, can benefit from it.
