"Drawing from a lifetime of experiences, the author of Don't Sit the Bench, Louis S. Sapia, Jr., shares a wealth of knowledge and gives practical advice for young adults starting to pave their own ways in life. Delivered encouragingly, he uses his own real-life trials and tribulations as examples, along with inspirational stories about some successful, well-known names and how they got to where they are today. From high school to college to employment he covers the whole court of life's challenges and gives tips on everything from study habits to creating social bonds, living on a budget to purchasing a car, all the while focusing on building independent, successful lives. While it's a great resource for those just starting out in life, there are lessons here that could be valuable to readers of all ages."
