Flight Plan

Synopsis: A life of greater possibilities, potentials and passions awaits the emerging young man. Flight Plan is a resource and source of instruction and encouragement for boys, their parents, and other adults who work with boys. This book is written with the aim of offering boys a vision and definition of manhood before they get there, a framework for considering the challenges of adolescence, and tools and strategies for making healthy and appropriate choices during those years.

My thoughts: All homeschoolers and most others should know what I mean when I say this is similar to A Beka health textbook. It gives the facts straight out, and then applies them to daily life. A warning though, at times these facts can be pretty detailed and the parent ought to look over the book first. The questions after each chapter are quite general, but still personal. An excellent feature I found is this: Many quotes listed were from popular figures in society, such as Michael Jordan, Leonardo De Caprio, and George Lucas, but also from prominent and wise leaders such as Ronald Reagan, Mark Twain, Benjamin Franklin, and C.S. Lewis. All the flight metaphors and stories were cool as well.

*I received this book free from TBB Media. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.*

My rating: 4 stars.
