This book is one I would recommend to any of my friends, teen or not. If it doesn't help you, you are lying.

The message of Do Hard Things is going to awaken the dreams and passions of thousands of young people all over the world who will be inspired to follow God's unique calling in their lives. How do I know this? This radical, yet relatively simple idea, has changed my life.

This book is a wake up call to a generation that is down in the dumps. It's like a coach screaming from the sidelines, "You can do it!!!" I'd recommend it to anyone, young or old.

This book has totally changed the way I think and has challenged me to take the hard paths in life and not the easy ones. I recommend it to any and every teen who has a desire to turn their life around and make a difference.

Reader, beware! As soon as you begin reading Do Hard Things you will discover that putting it down is a very hard thing.

I would HIGHLY recommend every youth pastor to read this book and pass it along to every student in their ministry. If we could grab onto the thinking and teaching in Do Hard Things, I can only imagine what our churches and communities would look like.

Alex and Brett have put into clear words what our generation has been needing to hear for years - it is a battle cry that is deeply rooted in the gospel and the cross. I believe and pray that every teen who reads this book will be inspired to take up the challenge to "do hard things." Thank you guys so much for writing this book - I pray that it will make a change beyond any of our expectations. It has changed me - and I pray it changes a generation.

I'm not exactly a teenager anymore. Twenty-six actually. But as I was reading I began to see how this can apply to anyone. It's never too late to start. And I completely enjoyed the diving board and swimming pool allusion to life. So simple to understand! I absolutely cannot wait to suggest this book to the 'kidults' in my life.

The message of Do Hard Things is one that needs to be shouted from the rooftops! This book is a must-read; not only for teens but for anyone seeking to not waste their life.
Age 15, California
Alex and Brett's book will leave you speechless. There is a maturity and excitement running through its pages that you will not find in any other teen book out there. They not only inspire and encourage you to live a life of doing hard things by giving real-life examples, but they give you the tools to live it as well. I walked away with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and determination to tackle the hard things in my life and prepare for my future.

Do Hard Things carries a message that this generation absolutely needs to hear. It caught my interest from the first sentence, and I can only imagine the impact it will have on teens around the globe.
Age 16, Washington
This book is amazing. As I read the chapter on doing 'big' hard things, I came face to face with a hard thing that I've been putting off. I knew that your book was a nudge from God telling me to get going! I'm going to, starting today, and I'm excited! I know God is going to do incredible and powerful things with this book, and I can't wait to see them happen.

After reading this book you feel as though you could run a marathon, swim an ocean, or even move mountains.
Age 19, Oregon
This book is special and I feel God working through this book. I am a mother and will definitely get this book for my 11-year-old son (just in time before teenage years). Thank you for writing such a powerful book to help not only our youth but all of us.
I love the way it is written. It is crystal clear, to the point, interesting, funny, challenging, encouraging, and an easy read.
Age 15, Western Australia
A book written by ordinary teens, with stories about ordinary teens, for ordinary teens, Do Hard Things is such an encouragement. If you are looking for proof that small steps at a time can ultimately make a difference, and change the world, Alex and Brett's book is for you.
Age 17, Idaho
Do Hard Things is perhaps the most needed and most life-changing truth that teens today need to hear.
Age 18, Michigan
Do Hard Things is a must read not only for teenagers, but the whole family. In a society that is so desperately driven by a "just do what feels good" mentality this book is a lifesaver. If the current generation of young people would read this book, they could make a mark on history unlike any generation before them. I pray that every person that comes in contact with this book will take the time to read it.
