Be prepared to take notes

A very thought provoking book. In many cases, Col. Hubbard reinforces lessons which my parents taught me, however, his experiences as a POW in North Vietnam lend an unparalled level of credibility. A must read for anyone in leadership roles, from industry to parenthood.

All you will ever need to reach your potential....

This was the most inspirational and life-changing book I have read in quite some time. I have read nearly everything the market has to offer on success, and have grown tired of the endless formulas, to do lists, gimmicks and phoney positive thinking concepts that you forget as soon as you put the book down. Colonel Hubbard's philosophy was forged in the hell of a North Vietnamese prison camp and applied, WITH RESULTS, in the real world when he got out and finished his career as an Air Force officer. His simple, no b.s. approach drove the bureaucrats and his superiors crazy, but it worked. To sum it up, Colonel Hubbard believes that regardless of your endeavor, there is something you can do today to improve on yesterday's performance. Human potential is controlled by two things-what you think you can do and how hard you are willing to work to accomplish it-that's it! Why should it be more complicated? He discusses attitude, work ethic, stress and courage with real life examples anyone can relate to. As he puts it, reaching a goal is one percent talent and ninety-nine percent effort. If you want something different from the rest of the books in this genre, buy this book now!

What can you accomplish?

There isn't anything in this world you could not do, physically or mentally. Read his book, if he comes to speak in your community go listen to him. Let him prove it to you. As he says, our potential is controlled by two things . . .Read it and find out how to maximize you potential.

Think you are having a bad day?

What about getting shot out of the sky over enemy territory? How about 5 years in solitary confinement, with your only communication being taps on the wall? Could you learn Spanish without ever seeing it written or ever hearing it spoken? Ed Hubbard did! A great book written by a man who has seen what potential there is in the human mind, and who overcame adversity. Read this book!

Excellent Motivational Book

This book is great for someone that just needs some direction or motivation in their life. The author puts everything into perspective, and gives hints on what life is about, and what to concentrate on to be happy and successful. A recommendation to all!
