Review

Steve Young

Former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers.

"Way to Be" is more than any playbook I ever had in the NFL, because it will help you avoid life's fumbles and interceptions. And that is because it is counsel from someone who is wise, someone who has your best interests at heart, someone who wants only for you to be happy and find true joy. It is like getting plays called in from the sideline by an exceptional coach who knows which plays to call when the going gets tough and the game is on the line.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and gave it to others who again were pleased with it. However it is aimed at teenagers which I don't think is so clear in advertising but that didn't bother me seen as I happen to be a teenager

HASH(0x9bab9ec4) out of 5 stars It's worth your time. 7 Feb. 2004
By Mike Compton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is very simple and it's a quick read (you can finish it in an afternoon). It's also fun and inspires without being preachy or using guilt. The heartfelt suggestions encourage one to simply be a better person and the themes are memorable. It's worth your time.

HASH(0x9bab9f18) out of 5 stars "Simple Truth Miscalled 'Simplicity.'" Sonnet 66 6 Sept. 2002
By Kendal B. Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is geared towards the youth and teenagers, and is a companion volume to President Hinckley's "Standing For Something." So don't expect the King Follet Discourse when you read this book. Instead expect straight talk and simple language about what the youth can do about improving the world.
I found this book to be refreshing in that it focuses on the way youth need to be, and what they can do to themselves to improve. It doesn't advocate the type of "Superman" activism, where people go off to other lands for a certain amount of time and solve everyone else's problems. Nor does the book rely on political-governmental solutions to the world's problems. Instead, President Hinckley suggests nine habits, or virtues, that the youth can incorporate in their lives to help change themselves.
This is a quiet book. It doesn't advocate a new government bureaucracy, or tax cut to solve the problems the youth are facing. It suggests the simple and soft things we can do to make a difference. Much like the three servings of leaven that filled the whole loaf.

HASH(0x9c67c504) out of 5 stars Way to Be 22 Sept. 2002
By Edward A. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although this little book is aimed at teenagers, I have found its down-to-earth advice a kind of compass for finding happiness in a noisy and distracting world. I'd recommend it for young and old alike.

By David Draper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the perfect book for our family with 15 grandchildren. We gave a copy to every one of them and it is referred to daily. What wonderful direction for youth (and adults) in a very confusing world. Thanks to Gordon B. Hinckley. dd
