“A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.”
Summary: The “Obstacle Course” referred to in the title is what one would normally think of as the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Dr. Acton, an elderly and wise professor, developed a course composed of 100 maxims which, if understood and applied would, indeed, help his students meet life’s promises and challenges. This is a fictional story that weaves in real-life concepts that teens can take to heart.
