With the typical young person’s impatience and short attention span, this 152 – page book is just about right in length. The tone is friendly: Author Andrew Tan stresses he’s no expert in life but just wants to share his experience and the lessons he learnt as a teenager. So he comes across as a wise, older brother offering suggestions – not solutions – to quintessential “student” issues including family, friends and BGRs (boy-girl-relationships). Reading this as an adult reminds me of the joys and pains of growing up – a useful guide for anyone dealing with the young.
