Get Your Teenager Talking by Jonathan McKee

Get Your Teenager Talking by Jonathan McKee should be titled Conversation Starters because that's what it is. There are six pages of "5 Tips to get your teenager talking" and the rest of the book is "180 Conversation Springboads" (see below for an example of one). For me (a mother of a 20 year old and a 17 year old), this book is a little too juvenile. I think it's better suited for very young teens and even tweens. While it's good in theory, I cannot see my daughter answering these questions without looking at me like I've lost my mind. 
Now, on the other hand, this would be perfect for a small group, Sunday school class, or a youth group. I think even older teens and young adults would enjoy these questions and the discussions as a group more than one-on-one.
Here's the back cover so you can see more about the book:
