Publisher's Summary

"The Commandant showed the demographics of the Prepster class by SAT scores...all I could do was lower my head in shame as the curve was ruined by one dot on the lower left side."

We all have dreams. Too often, those dreams seem out of reach to us for so long that we lose hope that we will ever achieve them. Fortunately, there are three key steps that anybody can take to making their dreams a reality.

In this book, Dave Swanson details how he used these simple principles (who wrestles goats anyway?) to overcome staggering odds and graduate from the United States Military Academy Preparatory School. Despite being an academic laughing stock and having a rudimentary understanding of math, Dave beat the odds and earned an appointment to West Point. Through Dave's inspiring story, you will stop and consider all those dreams that you have long put on the shelf and then make a plan to go after them as if your life depends on it.

Because it does.

Inspirational book from a proven combat leader

This book is well written and can be undertaken (like I did) in a single sitting. Great book for commuting or when you just want to find your limits. Dave has found the limits and perseverance in spades. His insights are far ranging and are a lesson to us all. If life isn’t going the way you once dreamed, this is the book for you. Dave’s common sense lessons will jump start you on the path of your dreams and away from life’s harsh realities.

This book is well worth the cost and invaluable to any self-help library
