About the Author:

This former classroom teacher, past outreach coordinator for at-risk youth, and counselor, left the educational environment to increase his ability to impact and change lives. Specializing in creating an awareness and understanding that changes attitudes and thinking patterns, which Larry refers to as Thought Habits. From studying for the priesthood to being part of the pit crew for Evel Knievel, Larry has risen to the top the hard way. After spending thirteen years learning hard lessons on what he calls his road of personal destruction. He amazingly used those life experiences to propel him to a road of personal construction.

Review:

Every now and then a valuable and much needed book comes along. Larry Tracey has written that book for teens, pre-teens and those who work with youth called The Secret of the Can. Reading his book will develop self-confidence, self-esteem and success in school, while building a solid foundation for life. Larry has a genuine way of transforming an entire school building through the Youth4Youth program and has added another powerful tool with The Secret of the Can. His vision, passion and pursuit of excellence in education are remarkable! I have great respect for Larry and am honored to call him my friend. --Jack Canfield - Co-Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul in The Classroom and The Success Principles --Jack Canfield

Larry Tracey creatively used the entries into a journal of a fictional student to transmit to the student reader ways to find personal freedom from negative influences in life as well as keys to personal success. Using this media allows students not drawn to traditional self-help books to identify with the character while expanding personal insight. I believe this inspirational book needs to be used in classrooms across the country as a springboard for success for our students. Note: Prior to taking the helm of Christian Educators, Finn was a public school educator in Ohio for 32 years: teacher, middle school & high school counselor, middle school & high school assistant principal, high school principal, and the last 11 years public school superintendent. --Finn Laursen, Executive Director of Christian Educators Association

With all the negative influences impacting our youth, Larry Tracey's approach through the garbage can concept offers a new and fresh approach to encouraging and edifying children, adolescents, and even adults. The road to success is not hard to come by when applying these practical life principles on a daily basis. Readers will find this book to be both revealing and rewarding in many ways! --Craig D. Koehler, Ph.D.
