“Very useful booklets. Written at a level people can understand but not so basic as to insult them. They help make sense out of complex topics and meet people where they’re at.

Very well-done graphically, reflecting diversity of race, gender, age so everybody can connect with them. They’re more meaty than some other resources, with solid information. They not only present information on the topic, but they include tips and pointers that help remind people of what they can do.

They are the right size for taking along so everyone gets some value from them.” ~ Federal Agency EAP Manager, DC

“I like your booklets because they are fast, easy-to-read, and to-the-point. Sometimes self-help books can be so daunting; they’re long-winded, wordy, and come with many chapters. Yours had such sound advice, I sincerely felt like everyone could learn something from them.” ~ State College, CA

“We get such a positive response from your booklets. It makes the instructor’s job so much easier! Their interactive format really helps when teaching a class. The back cover imprints also help us in promoting our services to the campus community.” ~ Community College, TX

“We built our employability curriculum around them. We were able to pick just the right titles for our needs.” ~ Community College, LA

“Many of the students who come in don’t have a lot of previous employment experience and are just starting their career planning. The booklets are easy to follow and understand, which is important. They’re also very attractive and include lots of helpful tips and guidelines. All of these features make them helpful in our workforce center, as well as in student services or the placement office.” ~ Dean of Student Services, Community College, FL

“Having Native Americans on the booklet covers has been awesome. Our display stand is constantly being re-filled.” ~ Native American High School, AZ

“I love these booklets – especially ‘Depression’ and ‘Finding the Strength: How to Get Past Thoughts of Suicide’! We give them to patients in our mental health and outpatient areas, and use them at outreach events. They come in very handy. No matter the education level, they explain things so that people understand more.” ~ ​Counseling Center, PA

“There’s a wealth of knowledge that’s been collected in LSE booklets. They’re just the right length for many people today who want something that’s quick and gets right to the point. It’s powerful practical information that saves them the time of searching online. And the personalized covers are great for branding our organization and acting as a recruitment tool.” ~ Community Service Agency, TX

“I just read your booklet ‘Mature Resume’ and wanted to call you to tell you that it’s outstanding. I am an unemployed professional and it’s taken me almost a year to learn what I just read in your booklet. There are all kinds of ‘networking groups’ and ‘job clubs’ that I’ve attended but they very rarely have the practical kinds of suggestions that your booklet did. Really helpful stuff! I also read ‘Job Leads’ and ‘Changing Careers’. I can tell you that there are free seminars and professional organizations out there that charge a lot of money for information that’s not that different from the tips and exercises in your booklets!” ~ Unexpected Call from IL Job-Seeker

“I just wanted to let Life Skills Education know that I recently read “Coping with Unemployment” and “Facing a Layoff” and found these books to be extremely well organized, meticulously written and edited, and impressively published. I’ve been a technical writer for more than 20 years (until having been laid off in April) and writing your type of books is what I did for a living. Out of habit I am always closely scrutinizing other works. I’d like you to know that the two booklets I read by Life Skills Education were a phenomenon to me, having been so well put together. Hang on to your writers, and let me know if you ever need more!” ~ Workforce Training Curricula Writer, LA

“The patients and families seem to learn a lot from reading them. I recently sent information to a mother whose son had a serious suicide attempt. The mom was most appreciative and called me to let me know how the information was helpful in educating the family about suicide.” ~ ​VA Medical Center, PA
