This isn't really a review. This is more of a rant. I enjoyed this book until I got to the "dating and sex" chapter. It angers me so much that the only thing he was saying in here is "SEX IS BAD AND YOU SHOULDN'T DO IT IF YOU'RE A TEEN OR YOU AREN'T MARRIED. ABSTINENCE OR REGRET IT" and that makes me so angry. I literally had to force myself to read the whole chapter, and I still ended up throwing it against the wall and screaming with rage and fury.

Yes, abstinence can be a good thing, and a good decision as well, but if there are teens having sex (which I'm not against) then you should educate them about knowing if they're ready or not, contraceptions, and whatever else, instead of shoving chastity bread down their throats. ...more

My mom bought me this when I was about 15. It was utterly pointless. Covey tries way too hard to sound like "one of the cool kids." He tried, and failed, to be your understanding friend. It was embarrassing. I had to read 7 Habits the summer before the 8th grade, and I hated that book. This one wasn't much better. I completely understand where he is coming from, and I know that being a teen sucks and is full of difficult decisions, but he assumes that most teens think the same way.

His thought processes in writing this book did not come anywhere close to matching mine. His commentary, honestly, was not helpful to teen me. 6 most important decisions? Ha! I'm almost 21 now, and I still have not been in some of these situations. Most of this book did not apply to my teenage years whatsoever. ...more

I absolutely love this book. These types of self-help books are what we need nowadays, since we all think we're the best people out there-- but in reality, we never are perfect. We human beings are naturally flawed, and as long as we try to improve on those faults, we are becoming better than we were before we tried. So that being said, this book is a great guide in helping us with becoming a more adequate teenager.

It is not a lecture book-- no one wants to buy another nagging machine, we get enough of those from our parents at home. But Sean Covey, author of many other self-help books, sets a tone that is advice-like and not lecture-like. He doesn't just tell you that you shouldn't have sex-- but ways to approach and react to it. (But honestly, follow the no sex ideal)
I would recommend this book to everyone who is willing to want to become a better person and prioritize their life. ...more

This is the kind of book every teenager should have. It is colorful, eye-catching on every page, fun to read, and very blunt.

My oldest daughter is about to turn 11, so I am preparing for middle school and the teen years ahead. While I think she is still too young to read this book on her own, I think it will be very valuable in a couple of years. The author takes you through six decisions (school, friends, parents, dating & sex, addictions, and self-worth) that will make or break a teen's future. He does a good job explaining the benefits of taking the "high road" and gives tips on how to do so. A worthwhile read.

Well, the author's purpose of writing this book is to give people an idea on what decisions that they will have to make as a teenager. So, the subject that the author suggests is that there are six decisions that you'll have to make as a teenager to become successful in life. The author's point of view from the book is that he takes his views from his past and he also takes other people's views from all over the world and expresses their feelings on these six decisions you'll have to make as a Well, the author's purpose of writing this book is to give people an idea on what decisions that they will have to make as a teenager. So, the subject that the author suggests is that there are six decisions that you'll have to make as a teenager to become successful in life. The author's point of view from the book is that he takes his views from his past and he also takes other people's views from all over the world and expresses their feelings on these six decisions you'll have to make as a teenager. The author uses very informational writings that each decision talks about and making an arguement about each one as well, but very true arguments about the decisions. Sean Covey wrote this book to target young teenagers that are in middle school (junior high), and in high school. This did this because as we finish high school, we begin to go out in the real world and begin our lives as people of society.

The theme of the book was making the six most important decisions that will affect and effect your life as an adult. These decisions has their own theme, but primarily have the same exact reason why we need these decisions in our lives. The six decisions were School, Friends, Parents, Dating and Sex, Addictions, and your Self-Worth or you as an individual. Sean Covey made this book to teach teenagers that you will have times that are good and bad, but will eventually see that the decisions were always be with you from when you start adolescence or even when you are born. The theme can help teenagers that are in tough situations and need support on what to do as an individual and accomplish what they want to do in life.

Now, when it comes to this book in a type of style, its very hard to determine which one is compatible. So, this book has all four types of styles because the description, narration, exposiion, and argument are all in this book. The description of the book is explaining on a time that is important to you in your life that can determine where to go in life, which is your adolescence or your teenage years. The narration of the book does tell a story on which events happen within your teenage years that are truly important to you as an individual. The exposition of the book is not only explaining one topic, but talks about five more topics that are important to your teenage years than to your adult life or vice versa. Lastly, the arguement of the book is basically arguing that these decisions can make you or break you as you develop in your adolescent years and will continue to build and even make you successful in life. So, this book puts these four styles to work and makes them compatible for your time in your life that is important to you.

My opinion about the book is that it was the great book I've read since my existence. It gave me insight that I did not know about on the six most important decisions you'll ever make in your life. I liked that it talked about what each decision has to do with how you perceive you as an individual and as you perceive the world, as a whole. I thought there was no dislikes in this book because it was so simple to understand and easy to follow. Also, I can personally say that this book can be followed by every teen in the whole world and even beyond the galaxy. There is absolutely NOTHING that I would change about this book because it goes into our perspective as a teen and what may happen if you don't make the right decisions as a teen. YES, it is similar to another book that I've read, which was The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, because when you read that book, this book about the six most important decisions will make you think about how the 7 habits will come into play and how they would effect you on the decisions you make as a teenager. Overall, this book has taught me that everything about making decisions would be important to what I make it as an adult. I truly recommend this book to teens who need inspirational words of wisdom to help them through their "rough patches" in life. ...more

Review: (model after the examples from class; no first person; no ‘why I chose this book’; professional, objective review)

Sean Covey is an international motivational speaker and author of self- development books. In his book, The Six Most Decisions You’ll Ever Have to Make is attractive in both is book cover as well as through listening to the audio book. There is a mixture of humor, “down –to –earth “advice and suggestions, as well as the guest voices of actual teenagers sharing their stories. Every parent, school guidance counselor and any other adult should make this audiobook available to the teens they work with.
The book addresses subjects that really apply to young people today. Stress, communication concerns with family, friends, and peers media influences and advertisements, dating and sexuality, addictions of any version, and self-esteem.
Sean Covey makes it clear how everyone has power to make their own decisions, how those positive or negative consequences impact themselves and others.

Highly Recommended

The Six Most Important Decisions you’ll Ever Make was definitely worth reading. Written for teens, it was witty, friendly, and very straightforward. My favorite of the decisions were the “Friends” and “Parents” sections because the author talked a lot about putting yourself in the shoes of the person you’re talking to. I found that this particular method worked very well when I was talking to my parents, because we have very different perspectives on certain parts of life.

As for the section about friends, I found the section on withstanding peer pressure to be my favorite part of the book. It talked about how being popular isn’t everything, and how middle school is a hard time to make lifelong friends. I think that the most valuable part of the book was the mission statement. The author’s goal was for the reader to
• Be Honest
• Do What’s Right
• Be Kind to Everyone
• Always Remember Who You Are and What You Stand For
• Try Your Hardest
• Give Everything Your All
• Have Fun
I thought that those seven goals were really good ways to stay on track, and I try to live by them. It's also a great book for parents to read because it gives them insight on what their kid is going through. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book that gives a different perspective on life.

Maybe I read this book a tad too late in my life for my liking. I think I was around 15 when some school shrink thought it was cool to make us buy & read the book.I didn't like it, not at all.
I found it cheesy and not very helpful. I think I have a predisposition to not liking any 'help' book I come across with. Even now, when I'm about to graduate as a shrink (irony?), I find it really hard to finish some of these books so I practically evade this section of the major.

This is like, one of the stupidest books ever. IT IS SO DAMN CHEESY. School chapter is nice, but sex, addictions and confidence chapters are awful. He obviously doesn't know anything about teenagers and I somehow have this feeling that he thinks that all teens are idiots, and the book refers to american lifestyle all the time... Sex chapter killed me. I almost thought that catholic church wrote that.. I could sum it up : 'SEX IS BAD DON'T DO THAT BEFORE MARRIAGE YOU'LL GET PREGNANT AND/OR GET This is like, one of the stupidest books ever. IT IS SO DAMN CHEESY.

This book was completely inapplicable to me. Not all teenagers think alike. Obviously, Covey overlooked the exceptions.

I was forced to read this book by my Social Studies/ELA because we were a lighthouse school and we needed to know are habits and how to apply the habits to our life. After a while, I really liked the book because the book helped me prepare myself for the future as I get older,and teach me things I don't know but needed too.

I purchased this book last night and I can't take myself away from it! It gets soooo addicting!

Sean is a wonderful author. Not only does he have charisma and the ability to make teens listen to him, he has quite the sense of humor as well! I, as a young teen, admire his writing style. It's very hard to find any book I enjoy even if it's a self help book. This book is guiding me through my teen years little bits at a time and I'm only on the 3rd chapter!

I thought it was very well written. I like how each decision was put split up into chapters. I like all of the lessons and the advice the author gives in the book. I actually feel like I've learned some new ways of dealing with certain situations in my life as a teenager. I feel like all teenagers and parents of teenagers need to read this book. I also think this should be read in all schools worldwide.
