    " I appreciate and second the sentiment. Beyond that...meh. Thankfully it is incredibly short. "

    " My plebe year Military Science teacher, CPT Uptgraft recommended this book to us. It helped me understand why soldiering is the best profession in the world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 8/12/2009

    " Very short, very well written. But, I couldn't shake the feeling that the moral of the story goes against everything that I believe in. "

    " I don't know what I missed but didnt' get the fabulous info I was supposed to get, or maybe I wasn't impressed with how it was delivered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 12/3/2008

    " it's so short that it would be criminal if every person didn't read it through "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 11/28/2008

    " Somewhat inspirational, but really seems an awful lot like some form of corporate propaganda. Work hard, do good ect.. I work in a cubicle so I think that I am naturally susceptible to this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 4/5/2008

    " Great message. Would have liked to know more of the story, however. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wachlin007 | 2/22/2008

    " A mentor gave this book to me as a motivator. Not so great at that. It is a quick read, provides a sense of owership but scratches the surface and doesn't make you think. You could pass. "

    " It was recommended by my mentor and I found it to be a quick read, good book, and uplifting. "
