A Message to Garcia is a very short book, it is about a man by the name of Rowan, and he is given a mission to bring a message to General Garcia. Hubbard teaches a lesson. When a superior asks you to do something; no matter how difficult, crazy or impossible it may sound, just go get it done. As the book teaches the lesson, to do what you are asked to do; that is what made me want to read the book. I was asked to read the passage, and write this report on it. So that is what I am doing. Yes, it lived up to my expectations because it taught a meaningful lesson that people should live by. Honestly, I didn’t learn anything new. I have always done what I was told when a superior asked and that was the whole moral of the passage.
The part I found most interesting was when they were trying to find and decide who would be fit enough to carry the message to Garcia. There is not really much more research you can do on the subject of doing what you are asked to do. So the book did not make me want to research into the subject more. I would recommend this book to the Marines who have a habit of not doing what they are asked to do. Maybe this would open their eyes and get them to do what they are asked. This book would affect everyone’s life, I think. Teaches you the lesson of doing what you’re asked to do. To gain trust, respect and responsibility from others so they know that they can count on you to get the job done. So yes, this book affects my life. If you do your job, no questions ask unless need be, you won’t lose trust. You will gain the respect from your employer and fellow employees and then they can trust that you will get the job done, whether they are there or they are away.
