The Myth of Heroe is a series of lessons that deal with many of the issues that affects adolescents today. The book begins with a discussion about the Italian Renaissance and how that movement was spurred by the youth of that era. I discuss how the adolescent stage is characterized by having an abundance of energy and confidence that if geared in the right direction- can change the world. I then begin with a course of 31 or so short lessons that discuss why having children before one can take care of themselves is a mistake, how knowing who you are and embracing your uniqueness is the path to success, why its essential to discover your talent or acquire a skill when you are young and how we have nothing to do with our parents choices, especially if they are damaging. The book is a supplement to help parents who want their teens to understand life and would like an interesting book to support their efforts. The book is frank in its delivery, yet the mythological story that is juxtaposed between the lessons may be as powerful as the literal lessons. The book ends with the history of man, this is added so that every teen that reads it can have a head start in the world. If those who read this book aspire to the heights that I encourage, they will need to know how to discuss everything from politics to astronomy, so I added it all there for them. This is an unique book, short, but packed with a lot of interesting punches.

The Myth of Heroe, the Art of Living for Adults and Teens was inspired by my work in social services. So many adults are busy working and making a living, while their teens are left to fend for themselves in many ways. This book has lessons about life that are important to teens and adults alike. Interspersed between the lessons is a story about a youth left to survive in the chilling and grave forest of Creeden. This story teaches the reader what beauty and strength is gained when one not only wants to survive, but is determined to become great.
