I wanted to let you know your book has helped me have very positive conversations with my boys about emotions and the challenges of growing up.

Teenagers often say " nobody understands me ". They may change their minds if they read this book.

I bought this book for my daughter who is 14 and I have to say it is the best purchase I have made! I suggested to her when we got it that we read a chapter a night together which I was shocked she agreed to!

Jenny Parent to a teenager daughter aged 14

It's the type of book you can come back to and dip into. The bits I have read are very good and useful. It's like a bible for adults and teenagers.

Therese Murphy-Cahill Customer who bought The Teenager's Book of Life

I know it’s called The Teenagers Book of Life, but after reading, I can’t imagine anyone in the world that wouldn’t find comfort in this book.

Moira Curran Head of Communications, SOAR Foundation

I loved reading the Teenager’s Book of Life and I think it's terrific! It is an impactful combination of deep spiritual/psychological truths with straightforward down to earth language.

Dr. Sidra Stone Ph.D. Pioneering Psychologist, Co-creator of Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves

A great book full of useful reflective tools and stories for young and old(er) alike! I certainly will be recommending it as part of my work with young and older people.

Jutta Greve, PhD Clinical Psychologist & CAMHS clinician

There is real stuff in this book. I'm 50 but with your words I was easily able to be back as I was when I was a 16 year old. Males of any age are generally not good at going to some the places in our heads and heart that this books takes you...

Tony Griffin has spent ten years going to schools all over the world to work with groups of teenagers with the single aim of opening their hearts and minds to their own potential. This is a gift.

If you have a teenager or know a teenager and wish for them have the resources to live their fullest life and not have their awesome wildness tamed get this book for them.

Tom Harkin Melbourne, Australia Author the 'We Are Young' quote in The Teenager's Book of Life

I believe parents need to read this book to understand what it is like to be a teenager in these crazy times and to learn what we need to learn to step back and let our children grow.

Christopher Brown Parent to two teenagers.

My daughter and I have begun reading this book together. She appreciates it’s truthful approach and how it’s clearly written for her age group rather than mine 😀

Dr Maret Dymond-Bassett Clinical Psychologist and Mindfulness Trainer, Hampshire, UK.

The Teenager’s Book of Life is an important book to read, but also a complete and utter joy. It shares experiences that most of us will relate to at some stage.

Tom Cribbin Father and Grandfather

Tony has successfully achieved what is a very difficult task – an adult writing a book for teenagers. He succeeds by not patronising or underestimating the reader.

Mark Mc Donnell CEO, The SOAR Foundation

I enjoyed reading the book because Tony has more of an insight into the average teenager's life than most adults.

C.J, Aged 15 Teenager

People must pay attention to this book. As someone who has been a parent to teenagers and coached many in sport, I feel this is one of the most important books I have come across.

Dessie Farrell Parent to three teenagers

A beautifully crafted book that avoids talking to teenagers the way adults often do.

Ruairí McKiernan Bestselling author of Hitching for Hope and founder of SpunOut.ie

Every teenager in the country needs to read this book. I would go so far to say that every parent in the country needs to read this book too.

Martin Glynn @pebble-tree-2020

Tony Griffin has the knack of knowing how to speak to youth, so they'll get it. As a parent of three teenagers, it'll be a book I'll be sure they read.

Margaret Parent to three teenagers

I want to highly recommend this book to teens, parents, teachers, therapists and everyone with a passion for ensuring our younger generation develop good mental health and their potential to live a full and rich life.

Dr. Angela Griffin Lead Clinical Psychologist, University Hospital Southampton Children's Hospital

I really enjoyed reading The Teenager's Book of Life. It is a book I definitely could have used in my own teenage years. One part I really connected with was the chapter on friends and finding your tribe. It made me appreciate how lucky I am in my own circle.

Emer Slein Youth Worker

Who am I? Where am I going? I am not [ ] enough. These are the questions and statements I hear most as a coach. Tony's writing, empathy, compassion and framing transports us back to our formative years, where these questions emerge and often remain unanswered.

Siobhan Earley Parent and Coach

This book reinforced my belief that being yourself is enough and helped me see the steps to take to learn how to fall in love with myself when I feel lost. This is a must read for all young people.

Amy Bermingham, aged 19 Teenager

This book is amazing. Things that need to be said and heard are now down on paper so it'll do great favours for anyone who reads it. Overall I think the book makes me feel seen and heard and understood.

Jack Goodman, aged 19 Teenager

I believe parents need to read this book to understand what it is like to be a teenager in these crazy times and to learn what we need to learn to step back and let our children grow into the person they want to be, not the person we want them to be.
