Synopsis (from amazon):

This is the book that every grandparent (or parent) has always meant to write for their children.... but has never found the time to do so.

In short, John D. Spooner has been carefully crafted a series of essential life lessons that every young person just out of college or high school needs to read before they embark upon their own life's adventures.

Told in friendly and reassuring tones, Spooner relates wonderful stories to illustrate and gently guide the next generation of what they can expect when searching for a job, how to know if you've found the right spouse, insights on how to plan for one's financial future, how the internet has changed our lives, dealing with adversity in life, and much, more more.

My Thoughts:
I was unsure of this book when I first got it. It sounded like it would be a lecture from a professor on growing up. That was not the case. This book read like a letter from a grandparent. My grandparents and I have a super close relationship so for a book to hit that right on amazed me. With graduation coming up I suggest this as a gift for everyone.
