What I Wish I Knew at 18 by Dennis Trittin

What I Wish I Knew at 18 by Dennis Trittin is the perfect book to give to the high schooler's who are graduating this year. It's everything that we wish the person we are now could go back and tell that young whippersnapper before life became real.
I appreciated the time managements lessons in this book (cleverly disguised though they were) and the urging to make every moment count.
I also appreciated the author's candidness on driving and how a personal tragedy made him passionate about sharing with others the mistakes that are easily avoided while behind the wheel. 
Tritton even has chapters on how to study in college and what to look for in a mate.
Make your life matter! You can accomplish a lot in the 70 or so years that you're on this planet. This little book could very well be the thing that'll set you on the right path.

Dennis Trittin is a successful investment manager, educator, and mentor who is committed to helping young people reach their full potential. Now retired from a 28-year investment career during which he helped grow his firm's assets from $1 billion to $220 billion, he devotes his time to promoting financial literacy and life management skills. Dennis and his wife have two children and reside in Gig Harbor, Washington.
