What I Wish I Knew at 18 - Review and Giveaway

If I knew then what I know now. I can't tell you how many times I've thought that.

Dennis Trittin has written a wonderful book for young people to impart his wisdom so that they can know what we all wish we had known at 18. What I Wish I Knew at 18: Life Lessons for the Road Ahead provides not only insight but practical applications and questions for the reader to ponder.


About Dennis Trittin
Dennis Trittin is a successful investment manager, educator and mentor committed to helping young adults reach their full potential. Now retired from managing over $30 billion in assets, he devotes his life to promoting leadership and life management on a global basis. Trittin serves as an advisor to several charitable groups and as a speaker with national and local educational and community organizations. Dennis and his wife Jeanne are parents of two young adults and reside in the Seattle area.
My thoughts:
This book would make a great gift for the teenager in your life. Mr. Trittin shares his "life success pointers" in areas such as character, relationships and communication, spiritual life, handling adversity, college academics, career selection, love and marriage, and managing finances. One of my favorite quotes from the book is "Remember that moral victories from doing your best can have just as much lasting value as an actual win." (p.44) This is the wisdom I want my children to glean from as they leave the nest and enter the next phase of their lives.
