Don't we all wish we could go back and relive our youth armed with the knowledge we now have? What I Wish I Knew at 18 is Dennis Trittin's handbook for the young on what he wish he knew before he went out into the real world.
He began compiling a list of things he wanted his son to know before going off to college and that turned into this book and ultimately fulfilled a lifelong desire to do something relevant, lasting and more fulfilling than his career in the Stock Market. He has imparted his wisdom to all in this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and agreed with all he said. It is very organized in it's content and covers a wide variety of subjects from finances to marriage. I wish I had read this at 18. However, I see one fundamental problem with it. I'm wondering how many eighteen year olds (and younger) would actually pick up a book like this and read it? Most kids that age think they know it all and are ready to conquer the world. Not many are seeking wisdom from those that have already been there. I know I wasn't, as much as I hate to admit it.
It seems that those wise enough to pick up a book like this, aren't the ones that really need to be reading it. I hope that I'm wrong and I will be saving this book to show my kids at that age because I see it's value. It is full of information that would benefit anyone starting out on their life adventure. I just hope there are some wise enough to read it and follow its instruction.
I think that part of living and learning is making mistakes and often the hard knocks are the lessons we remember, learn from and grow by. If there are those out there wiser than I was at that age then What I Wish I Knew at 18 is an invaluable tool that will contribute to their life success.
