New Book for Young Adults Attracts Growing Readership and Positive Reviews From Parents

Timely Wisdom as Students and Families Prepare for Graduation Season

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - Released earlier this year, the new book "From Dad, with Love: Everyday Wisdom For Young Adults" is drawing the attention of more than its intended readership base -- which is aimed at young adults transitioning to high school, college, and beyond. Parents, teachers, and adults of all ages are finding the small yet poignantly-written book to be an effective tool for addressing some of life's most important philosophies with their children, particularly as they prepare for graduations.

About the Book

Inspired by a father's letter to his unborn child, From Dad, with Love lovingly captures the essence of everyday wisdom for young adults. Addressing matters of the heart, mind, and soul, this book unveils some of life's most important philosophies in a meaningful, easy-to-read format.

"As graduation season approaches, a growing readership of parents is using the small book as a gift and conversation starter; a communication tool for initiating age-appropriate philosophical discussions with their kids," says author David Woodruff. "Though it's an easy read, it's packed with brief yet poignant insights to help young adults on their path to becoming clear, confident, and open-minded thinkers as they move on to high school, college, and career."
