Once in a while a book comes along just when it is needed.
Teenagers are coming of age in an uncertain and sometimes scary world. The Teenager’s Book Of Life
gives young people the tools they need to take their first steps in a world that will ask a lot of them and can often be unforgiving. It helps them to be honest with themselves about who they are and where they want to go in life, and it encourages them to have the confidence to pursue their passions and reach for their dreams, regardless of their circumstances.
For ten years Tony Griffin worked directly with teenagers listening to their greatest fears, worries and dreams. TheTeenager’s Book Of Life is the result of the work – a mosaic of stories, inspiring quotes and call-to-action exercises that guide teenagers on a journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. Tony goes right to the core, examining the most important dilemmas every teenager faces, challenging them to believe in their abilities, value their uniqueness and appreciate the difference they can make by being true to themselves.
Without sugar-coating the realities of life and the obstacles it throws in our way, The Teenager’s Book of Lifespeaks to the mind, heart and soul of every teenager, offering meaning, comfort and hard-won insight. An emotional rollercoaster of life-changing firsts, ecstatic highs and devastating lows needs a travel guide, and The Teenager’s Book Of Life is exactly that.
Tony Griffin has always been fascinated by the human experience and has spent his life exploring this passion. In 2010 he co-authored the bestselling book Screaming at the Sky, which was recognised for courageously dismantling taboos around mental health. In 2011 he co-founded the Soar Foundation, a pioneering emotional and mental health organisation that focuses on developing teenagers’ resilience and character.
