SaddleBrooke author Albert Anthony Melvin wrote Student Handbook for Success. This is the most interesting educational book that has realistic recommendations for today’s homeschool teachers, high school students, and college students that is so relevant and helpful, and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to all of the above.
As I read chapter after chapter, I began to wish I had this book for my own children, my own students in both high school and college, and for the parents of the many gifted students taught in the past.
Arizona State Senator Al Melvin has captured the essence of what is important for our children to learn as they are entering college. What he has learned as a captain in the United States Naval Reserves is compiled into meaningful tips and advice for parents, teachers, and students that will help them as they go through education and life.
Student Handbook for Success is exactly that—it is a handbook for anyone in business to read and follow his suggestions. There is religion tossed in along with his own outlooks on life, and it is worth a read and discussion with family members.
Each chapter has follow-up questions to see if you understood the gist of each chapter and gives the reader a chance to reread any missed important points that should be considered.
There are key excerpts from the U.S. Constitution, Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address,” and tips on being “calm, cool, and collected in dealing with others.”
This book is a must have, must read, and must share in discussions with your children and grandchildren. It covers many topics that are being ignored in today’s textbooks, and the information is presented in an enjoyable, factual chapter-by-chapter professional manner that may become a classic as teachers and educators get copies and spread the word.
