Don't read this from the first page to the last. Pick it up, open randomly, and read a few of the instructions. For example No. 68, Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Or how about No. 188, Be the most positive and enthusiastic person you know. It's not all character building, some are mundane, yet important: No. 310, Don't leave a ring in the bathtub and No. 423, Don't tailgate. You've heard it all before from loved ones, teachers, and your little sister. It's all good advice.
This simple book helps you to step back and view life in a whole new way. I've given copies of this to almost everyone I know. It's that good.
If I did not already have a copy, I would hang on to this little book and its over 500 suggestions for things you can DO (as opposed to "attitude") to have a happy life. It begins with "Compliment three people every day" and ends with "Call your Mother." Between, the wit and wisdom of a man writing a gift for a son setting out for college.
Great gif5t idea. Many hit close to home. A real Feel good Book
