About the Authors:

Alex and Brett Harris are the coauthors of the best-selling book Do Hard Things, which they wrote when they were eighteen. Today, the twins speak regularly to audiences of thousands on The Rebelution Tour; maintain a large online community through their blog, TheRebelution.com; and have been featured on CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and in the New York Times. Raised in Portland, Oregon, the brothers currently attend Patrick Henry College in Virginia.

My Take:
This is a very good instructional book....for TEENS. I suppose it would also be helpful for any age....but it is definitely geared toward teens. I enjoyed the stories that I read, and the brothers have great insights. I had my 11 year old (tween) read it. He was interested, but when I asked him what he though, he simply replied...it didn't apply to me right now much...maybe in a few years. So...definitely more for teens, then even tweens. It is most definitely a great starting point for anyone looking to further the Kingdom.
