Some Sailors mistakenly believe that reaching this rank is all about who you know. The simple truth is that there are no tricks, gimmicks, or friendships that will elevate you to this prestigious level. Chief Petty Officers come from all walks of life, but it’s much more than just about rank.

Former Command Master Chief Glass’ informative The Ultimate Chief Petty Officer Guidebook is a comprehensive, practical, and easy-to-follow how-to guide written specifically for every Sailor who even thinks about one day becoming a Chief Petty Officer. Glass offers step-by-step instructions and practical solutions, including helpful charts and graphics, to prepare you to reach your goal and excel before the Chief Petty Officer Selection Board.

The Ultimate Chief Petty Officer Guidebook is a must-read for anyone choosing this career path. It won’t guarantee you will become a Chief Petty Officer, but it will provide you with the tools and the mindset needed for success. Simply put, this book is essential reading.
