Book Review: Do Hard Things

Most of my book reviews have been on Novels, so I decided it was time for a change! DO HARD THINGS has been a wonderful inspiration in my life! I am super excited to be doing a review of Do Hard Things.
A little about the book:

"Most people don't expect you to understand what we're going to tell you in this book. 

And even if you understand, they don't expect you to care. 

And even if you care, they don't expect you to do anything about it. 

And even if you do something about it, they don't expect it to last. 

We do." 
– Alex and Brett

What I enjoyed:
This is one of my ultimate favorite books; One I will read again and recommend to everyone. Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris is a very inspirational book. It shows how the world will not expect teenagers to do much with their teen years and how most teens wast them. The Harris brothers argue that teens can make a difference. There are so many things that Teens are especially able to do. We should take advantage of the fact that we have more free time than adults working jobs and taking care of their families. 

They acknowledged that sometimes life is hard and we are called to do hard things. They gave practical advise as to how to go about doing hard things. They challenged me to do something useful with my teen years and to glorify God with my life.

The real life examples scattered throughout the book are very helpful, and make the topics so applicable to everyday life.
         
What I didn't like as much:
I should really just omit this section since none of the books I have been reviewing have needed it... ;/

Who I'd recommend this book to:
It is written for Teens but anyone (even adults) could gain from the topics. I am 14 and enjoyed it when I was 13. My sister, who is 12 is reading it this year.
     
A bit about the Authors: Alex and Brett

Alex and Brett have been inspiring Teens since their Teen years! Their blog, the Rebellution is a constant reminder to me to do hard things every day. It is wonderful to see teens helping other teens do hard things. I have recently joined Brett's Do Hard Things University, which is really training me and helping me to put into practice what Do Hard Things talks about!

Counted Worthy, which I have previously reviewed was inspired by Do Hard Things!
