"I've read a lot of books for young people, but this is the best one yet!"

- Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series


"This book is a real gem. In my opinion, it's a must read for all young people and anyone who cares about them!"

- Richard Carlson, Ph.D., Author of the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff series


"COOL STUFF is a unique book for teens in that it is both delightfully readable and absolutely important to today’s middle and high school students.  Kent and Kyle Healy’s sub title – “They Should Teach at School” – tells it all.  The “stuff” in this book is incredibly important to youngsters who are about to enter the adult world but, sadly, it ISN’T being taught in America’s schools. Practical life skills adults take for granted are presented to the youthful readers in a style with which all teens can identify. I highly recommend COOL STUFF to parents, teachers and school administrators alike.  If, after forty years in education, I can pick up this book, enjoy reading it and actually learn things from it, think what an important tool this could become if used by more of our teen learners!"

"Oh my gosh… [your book] is the best I have ever read, I just can't put it down!!! You know what, if you get a new book out, trust me I'll be looking for it… I have recommended it to many of my friends and now it's the most popular book here at school."

- Valeria, 15


"Your book taught me a lot even now that I am 25 and have been living on my own for a while. I feel like I have the confidence to start the online business I always wanted. Thanks again!"

- Evan, 25


I am a mother of three boys and I want to say first thank you for your great book.  When kids hear the message from someone their own age, it seems to have a much deeper effect than just hearing it from their parents.  I had purchased the book for my oldest son and he couldn't put the book down until it was finished and he refers to it all the time. I thought that when I was growing up 'things were difficult', but when I see what our boys are being faced with on a day-day basis, even with placing them in great schools and family-based neighborhood, they need reinforcements and tools in making good decisions.  I have purchased so many of your books for family and friends, and it has helped 'turn around' two very close friends' kids that 'were going down the wrong path'.   Your message is clear and to the point and just what teenage kids need in today's society.  

- Trish Keenan
