Written for teens, applicable to all

When I was younger, the Dick and Jane books were around as basic readers for children. This book is a take on those books but specifically pointed at how to be a good person in general! This is written with a great amount of humor and just enough snarkiness to keep you reading. Some of the topics covered include: in relationships, at work, at play, and on the internet. One bit that I took away from the relationship chapter was, "Before speaking, think": 'If I typed this is an email and sent it to my entire address book, would I be embarrassed?' If so, save the conversation for a more intimate setting. It's great to be honest, but show some tact and discretion." A quick read with a lot of information.
