About the Author
In a Scouting career spanning more than a quarter of a century, Mark Ray has participated in the program at almost every level: as a Cub Scout, a Boy Scout, a district executive, a Scout parent, a Wood Badge and National Jamboree staff member, and a Scoutmaster. Ray is an Eagle Scout, a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, and a recipient of the Silver Beaver. When he's not participating in Scouting activities, Ray is a freelance writer based in Louisville, Kentucky. His specialties include technology writing and corporate communications.

P.S. I've been bringing up many of the ideas in this book and my troop committee thinks I'm better than I really am.
Overall, I found this book to be very well written. Mr. Ray provides tons of information and plenty of examples and bullet points to support his experiences and research. At the end of each chapter he also provides resources to much of his information.
Although I am not our Troop's Scoutmaster yet, I plan to reference this book plenty in the next few years. Furthermore, when I think about it a little bit deeper, our Troop has probably done many of the things mentioned in this book. Mr. Ray has found a medium to expand upon those activities and ideas in an attempt to keep our young leaders interested in the Scouting movement for years to come. And, he gives both the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) and the Scoutmaster another tool to use in which to do it.
Although this is not an official BSA publication, I would recommend this book to anyone who is considering becoming a Scoutmaster of a Troop, large or small.
I would recommend this to my peers. It is a quick read, easy review of what we learn in training. The author is down-to-earth in the presentation of the materials and I would think this should be one of the tools in every Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster toolbox.
I've finished reading it once, now I'm about to re-read and create a ToDo list from it.
The only thing I think would improve it would be more links to website references. There are a number in this edition, but a new edition should have more.
