As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my latest major book project for the Boy Scouts of America is volume 2 of the Troop Leader Guidebook, which focuses on the needs of experienced troop leaders–something the BSA has really never done. The book should be hitting Scout shops in the next month or so–ScoutStuff.org is promising July 9–and I hope it’s on your shopping list. (Volume 1, which focuses on the needs of new troop leaders, is already available, by the way.)
A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to sit down (via Skype) with bloggers and longtime Scouters Clarke Green and Walter Underwood.to discuss the book in detail. We walked through the entire book, which gave me the chance to highlight my favorite parts.
Clarke recently posted an edited version of our discussion on his website, ScoutmasterCG.com. If you have an hour or so, give it a listen to learn more about the book:
And if you’d like to find out more about volume 1, check out Clarke and Walter’s take on that edition.
Clarke calls the new book “a real game changer.” I hope it will change the game in your troop starting this summer.
