A Scout Is …
by Todd Shaw
With a forward by Zig Ziglar and endorsements by Tom Ziglar, Pat Williams (of the Orlando Magic) and CEO Michael Norton among others, A Scout Is… explores the impact of the Boy Scouts of America organization and scouting on the lives of successful men across the country. The truth is, we all need tools that will energize us and propel us into the winner’s circle. A Scout Is… captures the essence of Boy Scouting and the characteristics that continue to produce winners in life! Author and Eagle Scout Todd Shaw explores the influence of Scouting and the principles that are found in the Scout Oath and Law: principles that define why the Boy Scouts of America has had such a huge impact on our society for 100 years. A Scout Is… includes Shaw’s own stories and those from others who have experienced the Scouting way of life such as legendary drag racer “Big Daddy” Don Garlits and Dirty Jobs own Mike Rowe. Shaw is a master storyteller. He’ll have you laughing and reflecting as he shares: The twelve character traits that can strengthen you throughout life; the importance of duty to God and country and of service to others; and the challenge of passing the values and virtues of Scouting to the next generation.
