Review – What I Wish I Knew at 18

Book_Cover_lgDo you remember when you were 18? If you are reading this and you’re not 18 I’m beyond jealous, enjoy the days ahead! When I think about my life at 18 (let’s just say it wasn’t yesterday), I cannot believe how foolish I was. When I think of the time of my life when I created the most physical and emotional scars, it was in that time period. It’s not ALL bad. I made some great memories in those years…GREAT memories. Yet I wish someone would have handed me a book like the one I just read before those critical years. It might have changed the trajectory of my decisions and ultimately….life.

What I Wish I Knew at 18 by Dennis Trittin is a true gem. I can’t begin to express what a great book this is. Using 109 Success Pointers, Dennis Trittin walks the reader through a road map of life instructions that are critical to the road ahead. I can only imagine what my life would have looked like had a taken the time to read a book like this prior to my late teens and early 20’s. Here’s a little bit about the author:

Dennis Trittin is a successful investment manager, educator and mentor committed to helping young adults reach their full potential. Now retired from managing over $30 billion in assets, he devotes his life to promoting leadership and life management on a global basis. Trittin serves as an advisor to several charitable groups and as a speaker with national and local educational and community organizations. Dennis and his wife Jeanne are parents of two young adults and reside in the Seattle area.

It’s hard to believe that in a few short months we will be celebrating high school and college graduations again. I highly recommend this book as a gift to those you know that might be graduating. They may not read it immediately, but you can know that you gave them a resource that they WILL use at some point. Excellent book. Even though I am no longer in my teens, even I will refer to this book often.

I give “What I Wish I Knew at 18” a 5 out of 5
