Easy to read, enlightening and helps raise awareness of the multitude of opportunities in manufacturing. Parents, teachers, students and counselors alike should read and share this book and its powerful message.
There are so many aspects to manufacturing and an incredible variety of ways to make a difference. From designing a new heart valve or bone screw to programming a complex jet engine component. Men and women of all ages are needed to fill open positions and Terry's book shares in unique and understandable ways what some of those are. I will be forever grateful to my father for encouraging me to become an apprentice. I've met amazing people, visited dozens of countries, seen and learned so much of not only how things are made, but how to make them better and more efficiently. This book is a must read, especially if you're looking for a career with stability, potential for growth and endless variety.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Terry's book, Finding America's Greatest Champion. (And not just because he is my brother!) Terry has always had a wonderful talent in expressing his thoughts through writing, and this is evident and shows his passions in the book. There are so many messages to be embraced in reading the book. Not only educating people on the opportunities and benefits in the Manufacturing world, but also in soul searching, work and personal ethics, parenting, mentoring, and "paying forward" to others all the lessons learned along the way. The upcoming generations will benefit from the experiences and words of wisdom that Terry shares in the book. I am very proud to be his sister, and proud of all his accomplishments in his personal life and his career. Well done!
5.0 out of 5 starsShould be a must read in High School Economics Class

This book brings a fresh insight to what a career in manufacturing is today from a direct viewpoint of individuals who have made a very successful career in manufacturing. Unfortunately, there is still a misconception of what a job in a machine shop is like. This book helps bring a refreshing look at the opportunities available to young people considering manufacturing as a career path, not only from a financial point of view but also from a personal accomplishment point of view.
Manufacturing is the spinal chord of our countries economic success. Most young people who will be our future leaders do not realize this yet. This book helps to bring this to light in an easy to read and understand format. Highly recommend this book.
