Fast forward to the present!
There is a Great Teenage Myth alive in this world! All of my personal and professional encounters have lead me to the discovery and uncovering of a TRUTH, which I call The Great Teenage Myth. I have shared this story of The Great Teenage Myth with hundreds of teenagers and adults over the last ten years, and frankly it has lead to the beginning of great success in the lives of many.
This Myth is alive in the hearts and minds of many preteens, teens and young adults walking around this planet. Although most myths are harmless, this one is destructive. When one believes and lives this Myth (and most are unaware that they believe and live the Myth) it keeps one from experiencing and having in their life – True Freedom, True Independence, True Personal Power.
Young people are not only living The Great Teenage Myth, they are perpetuating it each and every day, keeping its destructive power alive by sharing it with their friends and classmates.
Here are two Key Points to consider:
Key Point #1: The whole idea of “play” as teenagers’ experience it today is a relatively new concept.
Key Point #2: Before 1940, just over 65 years ago, there was technically no such thing as a teenager.
Only if you are willing to understand and shatter The Great Teenage Myth will you have given yourself the opportunity to experience and live what you truly desire and need in your life: Real Freedom, Real Independence, and Real Personal Power!!

What others are saying about The Great Teenage Myth:
“The teenage years can be a turbulent time for a young person as you solidify your personality, ambition, and life goals. Gandolfo has taken a brilliant look at how teenagers can attain their dreams by overcoming the myths that are often applied to their age group...
I have witnessed magnificent transitions of thousands of our students at High Point University where I serve as president. I teach a required course to all freshmen and seniors on life skills and developing positive life habits. When students submit their personal essays throughout the course of the semester, I have realized that young people are far more brilliant than they receive credit for by the world.
Gandolfo’s book is a must for understanding how to reach your goals efficiently and impress the world with your talents. Study this book and benefit from the expertise and experience he outlines. Apply relevant concepts to your life, and prepare your mind for what lies ahead.”
President, High Point University
Chairman, Great Harvest Bread Company
“Twenty Years of Operating the Free Enterprise Accelerated Systems Training retreats or FEAST for teenagers world wide, I have never seen something so important as The Great Teenage Myth by Joe Gandolfo. Every parent and teacher must make the MYTH required reading for Millennial Teens moving into their destiny as an urgency.”
Berny Dohrmann – Chairman www.ceospace.net
"Dear Joe, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading. The Great Teenage Myth. It is a very insightful work. As a high school English teacher, currently at Sprayberry High School, I am always on the lookout for literature that the students will truly benefit from reading and actually like.
I recently had my SAT Prep class read it! The students really enjoyed reading it, and our class discussion was great. They said that they know several people that need to read this book, people that are truly living the myth right now. Thank you for your amazing insights into the teenage mind."
Sincerely, Rebecca Salvatore – HS English Teacher
"This book gives motivation & confidence to the teenagers who are struggling through school, family and most importantly responsible choices that they have to make as they are physically & mentally maturing. This book shows a great view of teenagers from a historical perspective & acknowledges the differences between teenagers now and teenagers back through time. Also, it proves the teenage myth is just a myth by telling us in real life experience and logical notion that helps put teenagers in a right place & shows a better way for those teenagers who are seeking to be a better person."
Yong Won Kwon – HS Student
"The Great Teenage Myth is about how most teenagers believe that their parents are in control. Also, it is about how the word “teenager” has changed throughout the years.
I agree with pretty much everything in this book. I always thought that my parents were in control & when I do something bad … I have blamed it on my parents. But now I realize that
I control my choices & actions so therefore
I have to face the consequences."
Jenna Kim – HS Student
"Gandolfo goes into great depth on how generation “Y” or the youth of our time have gradually increased to separate themselves from their parents. He also hits on many key traits of how teenagers of my time, and some adults, act till this very day. This book was extremely suspenseful yet did not leave me feeling “empty” or longing for more when all questions where answered. I appreciated the head on approach.
A very nice book."
Alex Crawford – HS Student
"This book is about teenagers who feel as if they have no real freedom, real independence or real personal power.
They believe as if their parents or some higher authority has control of them. This book is teaching them that this is just a myth, The Great Teenage Myth. This book also explains ways to shatter this myth in one’s life.
Personally, I enjoyed the book. I believe that this book can change certain people’s lives if they took the time to read
The Great Teenage Myth. It would be great if everyone knew they were in control of their own life & stop blaming others
for their mishaps or their situations."
Condretta Brown – HS Student
"Gandolfo brought up some good points which can empower those of us who feel “under” control by others. This book actually made me stop, think and realize that only “I” can control myself. The Great Teenage Myth has helped me understand that I have a lot of opportunities ahead of me, and to capitalize on those opportunities I need to shatter the Myth!"
Meaghan Ramesy – HS Student
