Publisher's Summary

Now that I've retired my Scoutmaster badge I'm able to write what I would have appreciated reading when I first took on the job 30 years ago.

Since I started writing a blog at ScoutmasterCG.com 11 years ago, I've learned something of the power of storytelling.

This narrative loosely follows my own experiences, but the new Scoutmaster in the story begins knowing things that took me many years to understand. I share it with the hope you'll find it useful, and inspire you to discover something more about the spirit of your work as a Scouter.

Great read! Encouragement for all Scout Leaders!

I absolutely loved this book. Clarke really put together a great story to mirror his experience as a Scoutmaster. I am encouraged by this story.

A great listen (...every time). ;) <br />

I recommend Clark Green's So Far So Good to every new scout leader and every parent of an Arrow of Light Scout just crossing over into the Boy Scouts. It's a perfect primer.

Every scout leader and troop committee member should listen to this

This is what scouting is all about--growing boys and girls in leadership and character, helping parents and adult leaders to be mentors and guides rather than controlling instructors fearing failure. Loved this straightforward approach to telling it like it is and walking through a real-life example of shifting the focus from the adults to the scouts.

truly outstanding

I am currently a den leader for my Webelows pack but soon my son will be crossing over into scouting and this book definitely got me excited about his new Journey. I myself I'm trying to become a better leader by going to Wood badge. I want to be the best leader for not only my son but the Scouts in our troop. I have a feeling that I will be ree listening to this book many times in my scouting career.

Good info on Scouting

Very good info on understanding the Scouting "methods " better. I'd highly recommend any Scoutmasters, Assistants, Committee Members, and even parents of Scouts reading to get a better understanding of Boy Led Scouting and how it helps them grow into better men, employees, citizens,leaders when it clicks. It won't happen their first year it's a process. I've been involved with Scouts since the 1980s when I was in Scouts and this is my second time through. I wish I knew some of this years ago.

a must for all scooters and parents of scouts

Clark does a great job of breaking down the boy scout patrol method..This tale is a must read if you want to implement a boy run program.
