See Details

Item type: Book

Attention "Young Men" and those who parent and love them! If you asked the "average" man "What is a real man?" the responses might literally shock you.

Most men (including society) would have us believe that a "real man" is defined by his physical strength, perceived power, professional position, income level/bank account, personal possessions, potential or actual sexual conquests, and/or his level of public respectability.

All of these definitions offer a misguided and somewhat distorted view of manhood. But the real issue isn't how OTHERS define a "real man"; the more important question is how do YOU?

In "Are You the Man?" award-winning author, speaker, and educator, Professor Joe allows you to eavesdrop on his spiritual and emotional journey through manhood - by sharing with you 201 lessons his dad never taught him about being a man.

Through tough lessons, and sometimes painful confessions (that were originally intended for his own son), Joe will help you (or the son you love) re-examine and re-evaluate everything you've been taught (or not taught) about being a "real man."

ATTENTION: High School Teachers, Parents of High School Seniors, and/or Parents of College Freshman!

Do you feel like your students are capable of making better grades?

Does your student sometimes lack the motivation he or she needs to earn the grades you know they can make?

Do you see your student working harder for better grades, but with not getting the results they expect?

Does your student feel like he or she just can't cut it academically anymore?

Well, there's a way to change all of that, and Professor Joe guarantees the results or your money back!

Let's face it, students can't keep doing what they're doing and expect to get different results; so let Professor Joe teach them the "Tricks of the Grade: Street-smart Strategies for Acing College." These are the same "10 Tricks" he's taught thousands of students across the country every year for the past nine years to help them achieve better grades in college.

There are no boring chapter skimming gimmicks, note-taking skills, memorization techniques, or study strategies. If those techniques were so great, everyone would be graduating with honors.

In only 98 pages, (also available as an E-Course at, Professor Joe shows students in a funny, straight-forward, no-nonsense, eye-opening way how to:

Get "inside information" from their professors about acing their course (Trick #5)

Position themselves for higher grades on the "first" day of class (Tricks #3, 5)

Stay motivated in spite of being bored (Tricks #1, 2)

Gain an extra advantage over your classmates (Tricks #4, 5, 9, 10)

Get their professors to treat them with respect, instead of neglect (Tricks #5, 6, 8)

Avoid the most fatal mistakes that most students make (Trick #6)

Ace tough courses and tame tough professors (Trick #7)

Professor Joe teaches students the same strategies he used as a college student to transform his low SAT scores and average high school GPA into "Student of the Year" honors at his university.

After graduating from college at the top of his class at the age of 20, Joe became the youngest professor ever hired to teach at a state university in Florida at the age of 24. He credits his academic turnaround to "Tricks of the Grade," and now students can learn them too!

Dear Professor Martin:
A few weeks before the Fall semester began, I purchased your book "Tricks of the Grade" from the RWU website. I really enjoyed reading it, and I did my best to implement all of the strategies that you outlined. I am proud to say that I received my first 4.0 of my college career this semester. I have a renewed since of confidence in my schoolwork, and I just wanted to thank you for sharing your secrets with myself and many other college students. The website and the book have meant a lot to me, and I just wanted to thank you for your help, hard work, and inspirational messages.

Item type: eBook

As a teacher (or parent) of a teenager, have you ever found yourself uttering any of these (or similar) phrases:

  • "Why do you refuse to listen to me?"

  • "I feel like I'm talking to a brick wall"

  • "You really think you know everything, don't you?"

  • "I'm just telling you this for your own good"

  • "I'm just trying to stop you from making the same mistake I've made"

  • "You think I don't know what I'm talking about"

  • "Why do you insist on learning the hard way?"

If you have, and you're the teacher or parent of a teen or pre-teen, then this E-book is for you. Having educated, addressed, and successfully "motivated" more than a half million teenage students over the past 14 years, Professor Joe has decided to share his secret in cracking the code in communicating with teens: the strategic use of QUESTIONS!

In his E-book, "When Students Just Won't Listen," Joe shares with you 21 of the most powerful questions you can use to "get through" to almost any teenager. Each one is tried and proven - and Joe gives you specific instructions on how to use them and when to use (and why they work).

This is a MUST HAVE resource for anyone who has to instruct, inspire, influence, and/or interact with teenagers (including pre-teens). Here are just a few of the 21 student behavior issues Professor Joe attacks head-on in his "no holds barred - tell it like it is" style:

Students with bad attitudes
  • Students who negatively influence others

  • Students who waste time (yours and theirs)

  • Students who think they know it all

  • Students who hang around the wrong crowd

  • Students who are angry and bitter

  • Students who make excuses

  • Students who are bored with school

...and much much more.

And since the book is in digital format (.pdf), you can have it on your computer in less than a minute. So download your copy TODAY so you can "get through" to your teens tomorrow.
