2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By T. P. S. on December 18, 2013
Format: Paperback
Q: Why did you decide to write your book on this particular topic?

JG: This book is a tool to help you achieve your goal of becoming a Chief Petty Officer. As a Sailor, there are many precepts you can use to guide yourself as you work your way to achieve your goal of becoming a Chief Petty Officer, but none are as specific as what you will find in The Chief Petty Officer Guidebook. I believe it’s important to have specific information Sailors can obtain to set and achieve their goals. After all, setting and achieving goals are essential to your success; not just in the Navy but in any organization. In writing this book, it’s my goal to help you achieve it.

Q: Why would someone want to become a Chief Petty Officer?

JG: The Chief is required to be a technical expert, a fountain of wisdom, and a leader for personnel under his or her charge. The satisfaction you receive knowing you’ve helped Sailors set and achieve their goals is just one of the shoes a Chief fills everyday.

Q: How did you prepare to become a Chief Petty Officer beforehand?

JG: In order to become a Chief in today’s Navy, you must set realistic goals that will make you more competitive among your peers. One way to do this is to have a Career Development Board with your Chiefs. By doing both, I was able to achieve the rank of Chief. It’s not an easy task, but at least you’ll have a roadmap to guide you along the way, instead of driving blindly.

Q: What makes your book unique from other books on the same topic?

JG: Although there are several other books written about becoming a Chief Petty Officer, this is the first book written in detail and the most up-to-date.

Fantastic read! Informative, helpful, and a must have for all candidates going up for Chief Petty Officer. Not only does this book showcase the path to success, it also provides guidance in becoming a well rounded sailor. A must have in today's Navy if you plan on advancing up the ranks.

Format: Paperback
This book is not only informative for prospective Chiefs, but a great read for those already wearing anchors. Mr. Glass covers all aspects of what it takes to be selected, and of what is expected of a Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy. I have no doubt that a young Sailor, after reading this book and after focussing on his or her weaknesses, will be on a road to success.

I highly recommend this book for all Sailors that aspire to "wear the anchors". I already bought this book for three Sailors of my very own.
