The next generation stands on the brink of "Rebelution". With over 14 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing movement of Christian young people who are rebelling against the low expectations of their culture by choosing to "do hard things" for the glory of God.
Written when they were 18 years old, Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.
Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life and map a clear trajectory for long-term fulfillment and eternal impact.
Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of revolution already in progress challenges the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Life Changing!| Posted November 17, 2009
My dad gave me this book to read when I was going through a particularly difficult time in my life. The message picked me up and turned me around. It's life changing. It's revolutionary. It's a new mind-set. Did I mention that it is life changing. Also, you can read it over and over and it'll still have the same effect on you. I've read it more than 6 times in a year's span. I recommend it to every teenager, Christian or not.

This book is a life-changer. Not only do they present you with great inspiration, but Alex and Brett go a step farther and tell you ways that you can do your own hard things! If you're feeling scared, weak, or just apathetic, I recommend you read this book. Though it was a tad bit difficult to read at parts, like when they describe lukewarm people and feeling as if they were, in fact, describing me, I'm so glad I did.
Wow. Helped me so much.| Posted June 03, 2009
Before I heard about this book, I had been thinking about how much I want to do, but never feeling like I could do anything. This book showed me that I can do things. I allowed myself to believe I was no more than what was expected of me. It opened my mind to find myself and to see the big picture.

Do Hard Things is a life changing book. It is written for teenagers by teenagers, but everyone should read it.
People have low expectations of youth. The youth meet the low expectations, but do not surpass them. This book shows that even though the culture has low expectations for youth, we should surpass them.

This book is AMAZING! It's totally changed my life. I know that sounds corny, but it's true. I have a totally different perspective on life now. I always thought that being a teenager was the only time that I could just waste my life, so I did, I spent a lot of time on the computer, playing video games, and watching TV but Lately I've been doing hard things and I'm loving it! I'm writing a fantasy series, my cousin, sister, and I started a band, I'm writing songs with my sister, I made a blog and have kept it up, and I'm serving my family and friends. God has shown me the hard things I can do with his help. After you read this book, you'll find that it's easy to do hard things. It's so great to actually do things that really matter and I couldn't do it without God. So you should totally read this book, you definately won't regret it! :D
