It's also a really nice book to dip into as an adult whether you are new to Nina's books or have enjoyed her previous publications and her Life Clubs workshops. It is broken down into ten sections that follow the puzzle of life covering areas such as communication, organisation and success and asks questions that help you start to discover more about yourself. It is also beautifully laid out and illustrated and great whether you want to sit and read from cover to cover or dip in and out of the areas that interest you or are relevant just now.
I particularly like that it demystifies that nebulous concept "confidence" (it would make a much better verb than a noun, wouldn't it?) into practical, doable, positive strategies for change. So many teenagers suffer shyness and nerves in silence - this is a great book to put their way. It looks beautiful, and is perfectly bite-sized to meet the multiple-media (multiple-distraction?) approach to life that most teenagers lean towards. Its bright, beautifully designed pages grab the attention and the advice is sound: practical, useful and confidence building.
I've taught in schools, and in higher ed, and I know that this advice would make a real difference to teenagers suffering in silence, and gives them some great practical strategies to try out. It takes skill to create a book as distilled and eminently useful as this one, and I already have a teen in mind to recommend it to!
