My Thoughts…

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Extraordinary Teens  is a great inspirational book.  I know I enjoyed reading through it and I am not a teen anymore! I really liked getting to learn more about Kari Bryon from the popular show Myth Busters. It’s great to see where where the people were in and where they are now by the choices they show choose.

At the beginning of each story, you’ll find a quick facts section about the persons story you are about to read. You’ll learn about where they began and about where they are now.  Lots of great information, if you ask me!

Topics covered in this book are:

  • How to use all your talents and strengths
  • How to find a mentor
  • How to believe in yourself
  • How to keep a positive outlook
  • How to overcome challenges
  • How to have fun while pursuing your passion!

There are many great quotes to live by in this book and one that stuck out to me was  “Smart people learn from their mistakes, but really smart people learn from the mistakes of others”. I believe through this book,  life changing alterations can be made!
