Four Books with Simple Messages that Will Help You to be a Better You

BedA friend of mine is sending her son off to college this year. We recently talked about books she could give him to help him prepare for college and life.

"I want to give him something other than Oh, the Places You'll Go," she told me.

Since he was taking it with him to school, we agreed the book should be short and sweet. And, most importantly, the message had to be simple-- something useful that he could absorb quickly. I offered up the first book on this list.

But there are other books to recommend as well. Here's a short list of books with simple messages that will help your student--or you--to be a better you.

Putting yourself out there--being vulnerable--is a show of courage. And if you're not putting yourself out there, you can't be the best you.
