Smart Books for Graduates

Most of us want to give our graduates a good gift. I think giving books is a smart choice.

The first book that I would like to recommend is perfect for a high school or college graduate. It is called "Most Likely to Succeed at Work: How to Get Ahead at Work Using Everything You Learned in High School" by Wilma Davidson and Jack Dougherty. This book can be found at Amazon.com. It is $12.95 plus shipping. Order early though because it takes one to three weeks to ship. I think it is true that you have to take the skills that you learned in school and to apply in your every day life. This includes the work place.

The next book I am recommending is definitely a keeper, and it is good for both a high school and college graduate. It is "Personal Finance for Dummies, 5th Edition" by Eric Tyson. It can be bought at Amazons.com for $13.95 plus shipping. I think one of the biggest mistakes that people make in their life starting out is that they do not understand how to handle their personal finances. Help the graduate you care about by buying this book to help them succeed in their future.

"How to Survive in the Real World: Life after College Graduation" by Andrea Syrtash is a great book giving tips, advice, and stories from about 800 people about life after college. I think this is perfect for a graduate because they get to see the stories of people who have gone through it before them. This book can be bought at Borders.com. It sells for $13.95 plus shipping. It can ship within 24 hours.

Another great book to give to a college graduate is "The Turbulent Twenties Survival Guide: Figuring out Who You Are, What You Want, amp; Where You're Going after College" by Marcos R. Salazar. This book is about a psychological look at life after college. Sometimes college graduates feel a little lost once school is over, and this book should help them find their way again. This book can be found at Borders.com. It sells for $14.95 plus shipping. It ships within 24 hours.

The last book I recommend to give to a high school or college graduate is called "Tree of Life Leather Journal". It can be found at Target.com. It is $14.95 plus shipping. It ships within 24 hours. This is probably the most important book to buy out of all the graduation books out there. The reason why is because it is a writing journal. Journals are important in all stages of life, but I think it is the most important when you are just starting to figure out your life. You can write out your thoughts, and figure out what you truly want. Could there be a greater gift then figuring that out?
