"Youthful, dynamic and engaging from start to finish."
Michael Webb, St Ignatius' College, Riverview
"As a principal in a Positive Education school, his message spoke to me and will touch the lives of young people, parents and educators alike. His personal accounts of being bullied give this highly readable and accessible work true credibility. Written from the heart, as a young man who experienced the effects of bullying, his brutal honesty is inspiring and his practical exercises will give young people from all walks of life relatable scenarios and strategies to move from 'victim to victor'. A compelling read."
Peter Wade, Principal, Patrician Brothers' College, Fairfield
"I would heartily recommend this book as an enlightening read for adults, educators and young people seeking to discover the best version of themselves."
Dr Steven Middleton, Head of Berwick Grammar School
"As a high school teacher with many years of experience and as a mother of two teenagers, reading this book gave me many new ideas in how to manage the various curved balls that life throws at our kids these days. Especially the newer problems, such as cyber bullying and internet addiction. I think I even built a little more 'emotional muscle', as Daniel calls it, myself!"
Rita Fin, Assistant to the Headmaster, Sydney Grammar School
"Daniel has provided an inspirational, practical resource for teens to see the light in any situation, build resilience, develop self-awareness and 'get the monkeys off their back, ' so they can truly thrive. It's modern, readable and the personal stories make it real and provide hope for any teen facing challenges. This is an important book for any teen."
Amanda Rootsey, Youth Mentor, Author and Founder of Teen Academy, 'Shine From Within'
"Filled with real life stories, from himself and others he has interviewed, this book is emotional, raw, relevant, and most of all, it is practical. With summaries at the end of each chapter and practical application exercises, so it won't just be another nice book you read, it will be something that you can apply to your life - to change your life, literally! Young people need to read this, as should older people. Bravo Daniel, a brilliant book that will impact the next generation."
