For starters, Levine states that many of the skills needed for school may be different from the ones they will need during a career. For example, think of all the multiple-choice tests you may have taken in high school or at a university.

Every parent wants to know, "e;What will he be like when he's in his twenties?"e; After decades of observing children grow into young adults, Dr. Mel Levine, nationally known pediatrician and author, addresses the question of why some youngsters make a successful transition into adulthood while others do not. In recent years, says Dr. Levine, we have experienced an epidemic of career unreadiness as too many young people begin what he calls "e;the startup years"e; unprepared for the challenge of initiating a productive life.

Following is an excerpt from chapter 13 of the book. Teenagers have to shape and reshape the ways they think and act in response to the upheavals in their minds and bodies.

There is much that young adults can do to improve their work-life readiness.

Simon & Schuster (January 11, 2005) Purchase Ready or Not. Two years ago I attended a talk given by expert Mel Levine, . I was already a fan, knowing that he was an innovative thinker when it comes to kids and how their brains work. But that day, he said one thing in particular that made an indelible impression on me (you’ll pardon the paraphrasing): Parents need to prepare their children, not for Harvard, but for life. And now, Dr. Levine has written a book on that very theme

A guide for parents and educators offers advice on how to help adolescents transition into adulthood successfully, identifying signs that may be displayed by teens who are not ready for the realities of the adult world while recommending four key growth processes.

I didn't read this one, but our son lives far away from us because he couldn't stand living in the Virgin Islands. He lives with his older brother and will be graduating this June. I hope this helps him!

After I purchased this book, I went back and read more of the reviews. I came across Lyn Bush's Nov. 9, 2013 review and was puzzled by her comments about learning the "Mel Levine story". Upon googling his name, I found that he committed suicide in 2011, a day after a class action suit was filed against him on behalf of over 40 men who claimed they were molested by him as children.

I realize that this does not mean there is nothing of value in the book--from some of the other reviews, it seems like people have benefited from reading it. But although I tried, I just couldn't read it. Some of the articles I read included accounts from some of the plaintiffs and their words echoed in my mind as I tried to absorb the material in the book.

Dr. Mel Levine makes some good points in describing why so many of today's young adults have trouble with the transition from the world of school to the world of work. For starters, Levine states that many of the skills needed for school may be different from the ones they will need during a career. For example, think of all the multiple-choice tests you may have taken in high school or at a university. I agree with Levine that these tests really don't prepare a student for anything important in the adult world.

Levine also says that kids need to be more interested in the working lives of people. I think this is a great point. So many kids grow up idolizing sports stars or entertainers. Instead, they should try to make more connections with the adult world. Kids and students should focus on their feasible futures because the odds of making it in sports or entertainment are minute. It also talks about reading biographies of people you admire (to get an idea about how they navigated life). However, with technology and other reasons jobs are changing so fast that, as Levine notes, role models even within a family are an endangered species.

A lot of the advice is very practical. For example, it helps to know what abilities you have, what you enjoy doing, where you see yourself in x amount of years, etc. If you know this, you will not make the mistake of just taking whatever job comes along. This could easily turn into being stuck in a job you hate after awhile. It is important to keep in mind that a willingness to start way down and climb way up is, of course, the American Dream.

Bottom Line: It is a great/essential/interesting read for educators, parents, and students.

Levine takes a hard look at today's youth and how they're being prepared for life in the real world by parents and teachers alike. His all-too-true allegations about young people being prepared to be students rather than real-life workers is all too true. College and college prep programs prepare one for four years in a classroom, but not necessarily for a true career. Learning about a career and actually working in it are two different things, and Levine recognizes this difference with sound advice as to how to prepare for both. Highly recommend for educators, students, and their parents.

This book is a excellent resource tool for educators of all ages, no matter what professional role in the school.

We must continue to learn ways to encourage, enhance, challenge and enable

today's youth to discover their personal goals is life. What can be targeted, through their talents, yet giving them a reason for not giving up. We all have a purpose to fulfill in life. Just need to be challenged, guided to find out what it is!

This information can also be used with parents/ guardians who need insight for their child to find a healthy balance, while tackling the teenage years, peer pressures and other obstacles faced. Any guidance counselor, should consider this book, mine could have benefitted- no clue where to direct my future goals in life.

Like that old saying goes... " Don't judge a book by it's cover.", any books written by Dr.Levine are worth considering.
A must read for adults.
