Learning Magazine 2016
“The book is a fun and easy read. I like having the teaching guide. This is a great book for pre-teens and teens to understand the what, how, and why of good communication.“

“I love the format: easy to read, big print, bold titles, wired tips, straight to the point, pictures. The fact that each chapter is short makes it easy as well. I also like the website with the free section, which is full of tips and links."
