Fun Friday: Writing YA Fiction For Dummies?

If you're a YA fiction writer you'll get a giggle out of this site: Writing YA Fiction for Dummies. While the age range breakdown and word counts seem useful, some of the advice seems almost insulting. But that's just me. What do you guys think? Would you find something like this useful?

I have to admit that I find some of that advice to be wrong. Are many teens self-centered? Sure. Does that mean teens want to read about self-centered people? Nope! Making your main character self-centered seems like a guaranteed recipe for disaster to me.
