Praise for A Message from Garcia
"Every page bursts with new ideas and concrete steps to help you achieve a happy, satisfying, and successful life."
—Harvey MacKay, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
"First we read Charles's clear and insightful book . . . and then we gave it to our college- finishing son. We recommend that you do the same two things. This book is a terrific road map for anyone on the path to success."
—Richard and Linda Eyre authors of Teaching Your Children Values, #1 on the New York Times bestseller list
"People who strive for success are junkies for wisdom. Charlie Garcia's book is just the fix they need. It distills the wisdom of the ages with stories that provoke action towards success. Want to make it big? Read this book. By the time you finish it, you'll not only say, 'Yes, I can,' you'll say, 'Yes, I will.'"
—Lionel Sosa, media advisor to President George W. Bush author of The Americano Dream: How Latinos Can Achieve Success in Business and in Life
"Charles Garcia's A Message from Garcia provides both inspiration and message. The inspiration comes from his own story, effectively woven throughout the book; the message comes from his demonstration that success is neither born nor given, but earned through effective education, careful understanding of self, and fundamental expertise in the work you choose to do. Garcia got it right. Reading his book helps the rest of us get it right too."
—John V. Lombardi, Chancellor, University of Massachusetts Amherst
"America is the land of opportunity. I came to this country with empty pockets, a head filled with dreams, and a desire to succeed. I tell young people all the time that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything. A Message from Garcia wonderfully echoes these thoughts and more, explaining principles of success in a lighthearted manner that will pump you full of energy and excitement to dream big and achieve your goals."
—Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California

A big "different" -- The book was augmented with a website called Success Compass which helps you set goals and then e-mails you a reminder at whatever frequency you wish, even several times a day. I guess the key to success is not allowing yourself to forget what you want, and the Success Compass website doesn't let you forget. I liked it and I think you'll like it too.
NOTE: I really wanted the book A MESSAGE TO GARCIA; the selection was my fault. I did not recognize the difference at the time I ordered. I was following up on an oral recommendation I heard at a recent funeral. :-(
