Lists organize your thinking, focus your energy, free up time in your
day (and space in your brain), and give you confidence. No wonder
everyone loves lists: making them, reading them, checking things off on
them. Most books of lists feature facts, statistics, or trivia. Life
Lists for Teens is different. It’s not about the tallest this or the
weirdest that. Instead, it’s a user’s guide to life.
Over 200 powerful self-help lists distill “big topics” like health and
wellness, relationships, feelings, creativity, personal safety, school,
self-esteem, and problem-solving. Each list is like a mini self-help
book—a starting-point for learning, thinking, and making positive
choices and decisions. Some of the lists are practical: 6 Ways to
Remember What You Study, 12 Tips for Making and Keeping Friends, 3 Rules
for Doing Internet Research. Some are meant to motivate or inspire: 10
Goal-Setting Steps, 18 Great Reasons to Serve Others. Some are serious: 8
Tips for Coping with Tragedy or Disaster, 9 Symptoms of Major
Depression, 10 Ways to Handle Hate Words and Slurs. And some are just
for fun: The 8 Clown Commandments, 9 Tips for Changing Your Hair Color.
Any teen who has ever made a list will enjoy this book—as an inviting,
enlightening read, a place to go to for quick advice, and a ready source
of guidance and encouragement for all kinds of situations. These are
lists that matter and teens will use them every day.
