This edition helps learners of all ages and backgrounds take control of their lives and improve both their self-belief and self-esteem. A blend of concepts and applications help readers discover and develop their emotional, intellectual, physical and social potential.
The book involves readers in active learning with self-assessment questionnaires, activities that apply concepts to the reader’s own lives, questions that test comprehension, and case studies that foster critical-thinking skills. Profiles of people who have overcome challenges to succeed in life motivate learners, and many new, colored photos and illustrations help reinforce key concepts.
