What I Wish I Knew at 18 - Book Review & GIVEAWAY


What I Wish I Knew at 18:  Life Lessons For The Road Ahead, by Dennis Trittin is a thoughtful and thought provoking collection of wisdom, experience, and tender instruction.  Gosh, I don't know a soul who can't say that at some point in their life they may have made a different and better choice if they "only would have known".  No matter what a young person's journey may hold for himself, there is always wisdom in partaking of the knowledge and experience of someone who has gone before you.  


Dennis Trittin is a successful investment manager, educator and mentor committed to helping young adults reach their full potential. Now retired from managing over $30 billion in assets, he devotes his life to promoting leadership and life management on a global basis. Trittin serves as an advisor to several charitable groups and as a speaker with national and local educational and community organizations. Dennis and his wife Jeanne are parents of two young adults and reside in the Seattle area.

Although the book isn't huge at only 238 pages, I can tell you that it is packed with pieces of information that are useful to you or someone you know.  It is practical, has real life illustrations to relate to, and is a guide useful to any young person, regardless of their direction in life.   If you are serious about taking in all this book has to offer, then it is not a quick read.  Almost every page offers what Trittin calls a "Take 5".  It is here that he challenges you with though provoking questions to search your own heart, your own life, and your own desires for your future.  I would even suggest using the optional accompanying Student Guide and keeping a journal as you travel through this book and watch your own life unfold from today into your future.

You can purchase this book HERE for $18.95 or the e-book for $9.99.  Get more of the scoop on this book and the author at the following:

  8. I got a good laugh from your son's comment when I read about your idea to cook pork chops with french fried onions and bread crumbs. I thought it was funny that he was thinking of your cooking when he played Minecraft
