BEST BOOK ON LIFE LESSONS FOR A TEENAGER

Hill Harper is an actor, but he is so much more. A classmate of Barak Obama's at Harvard Law, he is also a motivational speaker who spends his free time talking to high school students about making the right decisions.

He has written this book for the young men he speaks to all over the US as a series of letters. In each one he answers a fictional question from his "young brother", dispensing advice on how to cope with things like girl problems, school issues and money. The book also includes advice from other prominent African-American stars that Harper has asked to contribute.

The book is eminently readible and appealing to the teens to whom Harper is trying to talk. His conversational style makes him seem like an older brother dispensing advice. He is also not afraid to show emotion, although at times this can come off as a little artificial.

Still, I would buy this for the young man in your life.
