The book “So, You Are a High School Graduate! The Ways of the World” by J Randall Stokes DMD guides young adults on how to keep their lives on the right track and be successful beyond high school. The author is thorough in his discussion providing readers with thoughtful ideas about different aspects of life. His perspectives run past simple career advice, tackling personal issues such as motivation, attitude, self-love, health, and finance. As a bonus, in the end of the reading, Dr. Stokes includes a self-assessment questionnaire as well as a budget form so that readers reflect where they are at at a personal level and evaluate their finances.

I read this book in a breeze. Dr. Stokes is straightforward in his inputs. At the same time, he touches issues that can be challenges to some such as self-motivation, planning, and keeping up with good habits. I found it delightful that he has included quotes and inspiring pictures in each chapter. That not only makes the book more pleasant, but also helps with its reflection. I enjoyed the holistic approach to the book as well. When I first saw the title, I thought it would suit only high school students and would focus on career advice. Needless to say, I was wrong. Any person in need of overall guidance in life, whether they are a high school graduate, college student or a professional, should read it. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to improve themselves.
