Great stories and practical action steps June 5 2006
By Lynn M. Griesemer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure of meeting Paul Lawrence Vann on May 6, 2006. It took me just three weeks to read his book and immediately begin applying some of his suggestions, all of which are helping me make improvements. I am definitely seeing and experiencing results.

I like the way Paul shares personal stories and short anecdotes to illustrate his points. Many motivational and self-help books are "flowery" and make you feel good; Paul is honest and tells the reader that it will take effort - sometimes tremendous effort - to make important changes. He inspires and gives you practical ideas on how to implement positive changes. His life story is fascinating and his is a man of high moral character, which gives the book and his message a lot of credibility.

Although this book is written with military personnel in mind, I found it very easy to adapt his strategies to my life (I am not currently in the military).

This is an excellent book and would have gotten five stars from me, but I was distracted by the lack of a high quality editing job.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book!

For those aspiring to achieve greatness July 25 2005
By Keith J. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Paul Vann is a true hero for those aspiring to achieve greatness. Through the use of personal stories, both triumphs and tragedies, Paul Vann demonstrates with passion, motivation, and joy how to obtain one's goals in life. From being raised in poverty to retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel, Paul Vann suffered setbacks, but by focusing on his goals, and with divine intervention, he has obtained and is living his dreams. The book is divided into 13 important and distinct periods in his life. At the end of each Chapter, Paul Vann asks the reader to reach into his or her heart and write down what's important -- to create an Action Plan. Each Action Plan serves as a guideline, a plan to review periodically, a goal to achieve. By following your own Action Plan, you too can achieve greatness, whatever greatness means to you -- Paul Vann has confidence in you.
