From Teen to Teen: How To Attain Your Best Life


Must read 🏆

16-year-old Vuong Pham Ho's book is not just for the teens, but also for the adults who are seeking inspiration and motivation.

This book left me flabbergasted. I was amazed at the fact that a sixteen-year-old boy was able to write a practical and comprehensive self-help guide. He is Vietnamese by nationality, but he writes with the finesse of a native English speaker. One quick glance at my Goodreads page would show you that I've read over 12 self-help books during the last 30 days. But I can tell this with absolute conviction that none of the 12 were able to impact me the way this book did. That's because he is someone I can relate to. I felt like we were on the same boat. As a teenager, who is a couple of years younger to me, he talks about the various problems and issues that young adults of today go through in life, most of which I'm well aware of. That's something that the 40 or 50-year-old business moguls/motivational speakers can't relate with.

Vuong Pham Ho is someone of this generation, who understands the functioning of society, inside-out. He talks about a myriad of topics including but not limited to - procrastination, productivity, career, habits, etc. Never does he give off the vibes of a child prodigy. When he shares anecdotes about his personal life, we come to the realization that Vuong Pham is just another teenager like us who was able to transform his life by taking the 'right' decisions and not someone who was born with ingrained super abilities. His suggestions are practical and logical. The intermittent moral stories were thought-provoking. The amount of effort and research that he has put into the book deems a big round of applause and I wouldn't be surprised if I find his books on the bestseller list someday in the future.

I would totally recommend this book to all the teenagers out there who are caught up in their own mess. Not only would the book give them clarity, but it would also "change' their mindset for the better. If there was one thing that I didn't like in the book, it was the lack of chapter breaks and structure. For example, the 5th chapter alone was 89 pages long, which I feel, could have been broken down into a bunch of chapters or sub-chapters. But then again, it would be very harsh of me to call that a problem or something of that sort. It was content-rich and I'm very positive that students and teenagers of today would be benefited by it.
