"This is truly an encyclopedia for successful living. The expert advice accumulated herein will be useful not only for students but for anyone who strives to live a good and successful life. "Maj. Gen. Carl Schneider, USAF (Ret). Author of Jet Pioneer: A Fighter Pilot's Memoir and Little House on the High Plains. Honored in the Arizona Aviation and Veteran's Halls of Fame.
"As a former Marine, straight out of high school, I'm guessing many young enlistees now, like I was then, are not terribly well-informed. This book provides an abbreviated liberal arts education that should trigger their interest to learn even more as they serve their country. It is a book of thoughtful ideas and heartfelt advice written by a true patriot." James W. Clarke, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of Arizona, former Fulbright Scholar, and author of five non-fiction books and a novel on criminal violence.
Captain Melvin's book is a critical addition to a young person's education. As someone who left home early and had to rely largely upon formal learning for everyday guidance, I am impressed by how much of the contents fits beautifully into currently neglected lifestyle areas. He provides welcome alternatives to today's increasingly secular viewpoints. Colonel Glenn M. Perry, USAF (Ret). Air Force U-2 pilot, commander, and educator. Graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and Air War College--This text refers to the paperback edition.

As I read chapter after chapter, I began to wish I had this book for my own children, my own students in both high school and college, and for the parents of the many gifted students taught in the past.
Arizona State Senator Al Melvin has captured the essence of what is important for our children to learn as they are entering college. What he has learned as a Captain in the United States Naval Reserves is compiled into meaningful tips and advice for parents, teachers, and students that will help them as they go through education and life.
Student Handbook for Success is exactly that. It is handbook for anyone in business to read and follow his suggestions. There is religion tossed in, and his own outlooks on life, and it is worth a read and discussion with family members.
Each chapter has follow-up questions to see if you understood the gist of each chapter, and gives the reader a chance to reread any missed important points that should be considered.
There are key excerpts from the U S Constitution, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and tips on being “Calm, Cool, and Collected in dealing with others.”
This book is a must have, must read, and must share, in discussions with your children and grandchildren. It covers many topics that are being ignored in today’s text books, and the information is presented in an enjoyable factual chapter by chapter professional manner that may become a classic as teachers and educators get copies and spread the word.,
With experience gained as a Captain with nine years at sea in the bridge of merchant marine and US Navy vessels, and as a two-term Arizona State Senator, Al Melvin has assembled a lifetime of truths and good advice for youth.
May God bless your children and grandchildren as they continue to become the men and the woman you desire them to be. At the right age and time, having them read this book will certainly help. I ordered five for my Great Grandchildren.
Mr. Melvin’s life experience is generously shared for the benefit of the reader. This book covers a broad spectrum of essential tools for success for students young and old.
