In the tradition of The Bluejacket's Manual, this new guide serves as "mentor" to the U.S. Navy's Chief Petty Officers and "gouge" to those who aspire to be CPOs. It is the result of an extensive review process by a select board of CPOs, including those assigned to the Senior Enlisted Academy in Newport, Rhode Island. The book provides extensive guidance in the four major skills areas deemed essential for today's successful CPO: leading, communicating, developing, and supporting. Among the sixteen useful chapters are "The Moral Compass," "Written Communications," and "Advancement and Professional Development," and there is specific guidance in topics unique to being a chief, including the conduct of CPO initiations, living in the Chief's Mess, and wearing khakis. Both textbook and reference work, the guide is mandatory reading for all E-6s and above.Hagan, John is the author of 'Chief Petty Officer's Guide', published 2004 under ISBN 9781591144595 and ISBN 1591144590.
