9780578038889: Making The Most of Yourself

Approximately seventy years ago my great-grandfather wrote a book to guide the youth of America. Originally published in 1941, the book offered perspective and inspiration to a country amidst war and social unrest. Today, America faces comparable political, economic and social challenges-yet, I feel confident that my great-grandfather's fundamental principals continue to resonate with truth. Diligence, self-reliance, altruism--and most importantly-unity, remain the solution to a brighter youth and a better America. It is my great privilege to share with you in its original format, Making the Most of Yourself written by, James E. West. My great-grandfather, James E. West, was a man who, despite adversity, dedicated his life to cultivating the Boy Scouts of America. His courage and devotion to this cause helped shape the group into the great organization it is today. Given the pervasive sense of uncertainty and insecurity plaguing the country today, I firmly believe both America and Scouting need this book more than ever. My great-grandfather's indefatigable spirit has served as my model and source of inspiration throughout my life, beginning when my mother read these quips to me as bedtime stories. I hope these short, simple chapters provide you with the same level of faith, motivation and will to ceaselessly strive towards achievement. Most importantly, I hope these short, simple stories provide you with the strength to maintain pure ideals amidst obstacles; for when man strives to improve himself, he strives to improve his country. Yours Truly, Andrew D. West Great Grandson - James E. West James E. West was a founding father and the first Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts of America, serving from 1911-1943. Upon his retirement from the BSA, West was given the title of Chief Scout. In the words of President Theodore Roosevelt: "James E. West was one of those disinterested and patriotic citizens to whom this country stands under a peculiar debt of gratitude." He devoted his life to the youth of American and BSA despite several physical conditions that left him nearly crippled. Through hard work and a lifetime of devotion, he helped to pioneer the Boy Scouts of America from a group of just a few people to an organization of magnificent proportions. Today he is remembered for the ideals and the vision behind the Boy Scouts of America.

About the Author:

The foundation was well laid and the trail well blazed by our first Chief Scout Executive, James E. West. His passion for and commitment to the absolute certainty that the Boy Scouts of America would serve to mold generations of young men to assume their place as leaders, and simply "good men" in every community in the land has had a profound effect on the shaping of America. When I find myself needing to center on what it is we are truly all about, I take great guidance from this wonderful book. It describes the essence of the Scouting movement. I am honored to have been called upon to serve in his footsteps as the 11th Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America as we launch Scouting's second century of service to youth. -Robert J. Mazzuca, Chief Scout Executive
