A Powerful Little Book
This little book covers many important topics that include choice, friends, roommates, faith, money and other useful topics. The information presented was concise and included real life stories to help you understand the road ahead after you graduate college. Although I have two more years before I graduate high school,the information presented will be very useful now. There are many challenges that a teenager is faced while in high school and the book can help you choose the right path to take in life. This is a great gift for any high school or college graduate.

The Grad’s Guide to Choosing Well
The Grad’s Guide to Choosing Well is published by Navpress under its TH1NK line of materials.
It explores common tough issues and temptations teens and young adults will likely face as they head out for life on their own in colleges.
Using Proverbs 3:5-6 as a foundation for making choices and setting priorities in daily life, this guide follow a pre-set format of the so-called Choice Matrix where each line of Prov 3:5-6 forms a domain by itself.
Overall, although this book has covered the essential contemporary issues faced by young people, I find the writing of this book to be rather plain and to an extent, monotonous. It is hard to dig out the gems and "life lessons" out from the stories. It lacks specificity when it comes to dealing with a particular issue. I wish this book would have at least some charts, figures, more captions, etc.

The Guide Review
The Grad’s Guide to Choosing Well by TH1NK
The Grad’s Guide to Choosing Well is about what the title is implying – a guide for high school grad’s on making good decisions in life. Every lesson in the book centers around Proverbs 3:5-6, which I feel is a great choice. In addition, the Guide offers its wisdom in a compact, easy-to-read format. One thing I did not like about the book was the way it talked to its audience (high school grads) as if they were junior high students. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt that it had smart little tidbits for making your way through life, not only in college, but in general. Also, I enjoyed the layout of each chapter, with each verse of Proverbs 3:5-6 as a breakdown into a ‘mini lesson’; and the “Wise Bites” at the end of the chapters were artfully chosen. However, I personally did not like the name of “The Choice Matrix”, although I’m not sure what I would have called it. The conclusion of the book kind of left me hanging – it bothered me for some reason. I did feel that TH1NK really knew what they were talking about and had all their supporting details down, and I loved that about them. All in all, The Grad’s Guide to Choosing Well was an informative book, but could have used a more age-appropriate tone toward the audience.
Thanks to NavPress for providing me with this book!
