Teenagers aren’t the easiest people you can find yourself dealing with. It’s the word of an expert, meaning someone with long-lasting experience not someone with an answer to any question. As a teacher to teenagers, I’m still and continuously looking for answers, tips and suggestions to help me cope with their complexity. This is why I found this little book (17,000 words), which is meant to help teenagers, quite helpful to myself and my purpose. The Jawbreaker: Unlock the (U)niverse by Jolene Stockman is a guide aimed at leading young adults to self –awareness and self-confidence with a step-by-step analysis of their most common attitudes to themselves, to others and to life in general ( You, Change, Knowing, The Glow), which also includes a set of practical exercises and activities (Mind Games) targeting single specific goals. “You are a million moments. You have created yourself bit by bit and layer by layer, every day since you were born. You are a jawbreaker” … This is the starting point, a really spot on image chosen by the author. She wants the readers to figure themselves out like jawbreakers. And jawbreakers are sweet, colourful but really hard to break. I found it a brilliant metaphor.Honestly, I think this book might help any reader, not only demographic audience, to build up their strength and it might show them their own story in a whole new way. Try it yourself!“You can help others in the world more by making the most of yourself than in any other way” (Earl Nightingale)
Jawbreaker (Unlock The Universe) by Jolene Stockman5 StarsJawbreaker is a positive thinking self-help book, which encourages the reader to try to see their life in a more optimistic way. By describing us as a sweet (a jawbreaker) that has thousands of layers all in different colours, Jolene’s words allow the reader to visualise and evaluate their life, putting every event, whether good or bad, into perspective, explaining that the past is the past and we cannot change it, but we can choose the direction of our future and Jawbreaker (Unlock The Universe) is the how to guide.As usual I found Jolene’s work inspiring and her up beat manner comes across in this easy to read book. Though aimed at teenagers/young adults I really don’t think this book should be ignored by those of us that are past that stage in our lives, people of all ages could benefit from the teachings in this book.

Full review at: http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress...I received an ecopy of this book in return for an honest review.Jawbreaker: Unlocking the (U)niverse is a short but substantial read aimed at young adults and focused around the tools required to create your identity the way you want and/or need it to be. Divided into short chapters centred around a theme, the book covers a range of personal development concepts in easy-to-understand language, with the added benefit of suggested activities that can be dipped or delved into depending on how deep the reader wants to go.I was initially slightly put off by the chirpy, cheerleader-style language of the initial chapter, but quickly got over this as it swiftly became apparent that the content of the book was both relevant to the target age, and easy to apply to one's personal circumstances. One of the notable things about the content was the author's repeated acknowledgement that personal growth takes time. This is an important concept to grasp for the intended audience and it was reassuring to know that the book was not touting the suggestions as a quick-fix, two-minute solution to a perfect life.This book will greatly appeal to the target audience and in particular, young women who are ready to undertake some basic introspection regarding how they want to be in the world.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.Jawbreaker is for young adults and is all about making the most of your life. Jolene Stockman is full of encouragement and motivation and her energy leaps off of the pages.There is some good advice in Jawbreaker. Just a couple examples: it encourages you to change things if you’re not happy and it suggests visualization, which is a great tool.There seemed to be one mixed message. Jolene says that all you have to do is order what you want from the universe and, if you believe, you will receive it; but she also encourages planning for your future. The ordering what you want message makes me nervous because I know teens who would read that and focus only on that part of the message.Something that stood out for me: “find something that you love with all your heart” when you’re deciding what you want to do as far as work. I’ve always told my kids this. It doesn’t matter how much money you make if you’re miserable making it.This is a good book to help young adults find their way.
It's a book for young adults. It is about finding yourself, your passion and who you are.Jawbreaker teaches you accountability. Your brand (who you are) is a very important part of the equation. The metaphor of Jawbreaker is actually very fitting. Everyone has layers like an onion, or in this case, a jawbreaker. Sometimes, it is not always easy to open those layers. But they are what makes you who you are!I think Jawbreaker is the perfect book for youth who are undecided on their future or who are graduating from high school. Its message is very important.read more at my blog: http://ashleighgfg.blogspot.com/2013/...
I think every young adult/teenager should read this book. It's about finding out who you are on many levels and trying to better yourself. It was motivational without being preachy. If you want a pick me up/self help this will be a great. We do have lots of layers to uncover within ourselves. WaAR
