Format: Paperback
I was fortunate to get hold of an early copy of Nina's new booked aimed at young adults. Friends were going through a tough time after recent exam results and were struggling to help their son to make decisions about his future. Giving him a copy of this book was a great hit and worked both as a way of starting conversations about the future and what inspired him as well as being used as a workbook by the younger sibling. The older child has really started to open up and his parents have started seeing things from his perspective. I know it's early days but the books bite sized approach has helped tackle some of the underlying issues without making the future seem like an insurmountable problem.

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 really loved "How to get what you want" . It will make a great present for teens this Christmas.

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!

I know this is for a younger market but I still found it very helpful as an adult. I have read a lot of self-help books over the years and a lot gave me a sinking feeling when I read them - they are too dry and make you feel that there are Everest-like mountains to climb. What I loved about this book is that it had simple, effective ideas combined with a creativity that appealed to me. I would definitely recommend this - Nina Grunfeld is very, very wise. It would make a nice present for a godchild.

I bought this book by mistake (being 56 and not realising it was for young adults) but it's been great for me. I had meant to send it to my daughter who has just started at uni, but I lent it to my ex husband the other week and he found it useful too! I'll send it to my daughter eventually but it has galvanised me to do a lot of things: ie not just focus on working on my phd, which I've been trying to do for the last seven years, but also thinking about how my phd fits in with all my other goals. It's great that eating well, sleeping well, and exercising well, means that I can concentrate better on my phd too - amazing. When I worked late one night till the early hours, I did good work, but not only did I waste the next day, but I also ate really badly too. So everything's connected!
