This fantastic new book by Alex and Brett Harris officially releases on April 15. Amazon’s regular price is 32% off the $16.99 list price. But until Tuesday (04/15) an extra 5% pre-order discount applies. I was grateful to read this book in manuscript form and offer these words in response:
“In a culture of low expectations, non-stop entertainment and short attention spans, teenagers Alex and Brett Harris provide a voice of reason and a stirring exhortation to productive action in the name of Christ. As a university professor, I am not unaware of the Gen Y propensity to demand more recognition for less effort and to associate self-esteem with mere being rather than for actual accomplishment. Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations is a clarion call to teenagers everywhere to put away childishness and the fruit of immaturity and channel the energy of youth, in small ways and big ways, into world-changing activity with eternal significance. I highly recommend it.”
At California Baptist University, we’ve already pre-ordered 55 copies for the inaugural class of engineering students. Personally, I think every high school and college student would benefit greatly by reading this book.
Do Hard Things is also available here (where you can view the Table of Contents and Chapter 4). And here’s Chapter 1.
