I have known E.G. Harvin for over 15 years. It’s because of his integrity and overall character that I agreed to read this book.
I want everyone to know, that as an educator for my entire life, I have never read or seen a book that is more needed in our junior and high schools curricula. It absolutely can prepare our children for the real world in a way that is nothing short of phenomenal.

This book, created for the benefit of students, was written in an easy-to-follow common sense manner. I plan to use it as a guide in my classes, because it touches upon key and important life skills.
With deep appreciation and respect for writing such a fine, thought provoking book,

I have known E.G. Harvin for many years, both as a friend and as a leader in our church.
I truly believe that this work will and should be a powerful training tool for any business. E.G. touches on good business practices through good work habits, moral habits, and fairness to the employee and employer alike.
This book is a tool that I would have used, as required reading for my management team in all 11 stores that I supervised.

This book, Traits, is a nice easy read that has much impact in it.
As a principal of a large elementary public school, I see this book as a guide through all grade levels providing good things to live by! I also would believe ALL will benefit by reading this book.
For children, students, young adults, and those looking to rebound in life, this is a MUST read!

I have known E.G. for 50 years and can truly say he is a man “who not only talks the talk, but he walks the walk.”
His book is a compilation of the teachings that many of us learned in our homes, churches and extended families in our communities. Sadly today that is not the case. With both parents working, or with many homes managing with a single parent, the teaching of these traits is barely skimmed. It is an easy read and organized in a way that is simple to follow.
Thank you, E.G. for providing an easy-to-follow road map through the traits many of us grew up with! This is a must read for companies as well as schools.

Ideas are powerful! They fuel the engine of creativity and production in the business world. E.G. Harvin has identified ideas that every employee needs to succeed in business and life. People are hired for skill sets and fired for their personalities. Mastering the ideas in “Traits” will unlock the unlimited potential in everyone.

As a retired serial entrepreneur/executive, I made the decision to dedicate my life to ending bullying, saving lives, and preparing students for a virtuous life and career. Reading and applying the lessons learned in “Traits” is a big step in the right direction and is a must read for all 6th grade to college age students.

“Both Donna and I have appreciated the great work of E.G. Harvin as well as his friendship, especially this latest book, his greatest work “Traits”. Not since the The New England Primer, introduced in Boston in 1690 as the first textbook printed in America, has there been such a common sense book which every America should be required to read, beginning in our elementary schools and then every year of one’s life. The New England Primer for a century after its introduction, it was the beginning textbook for students; and until well into the twentieth century it continued to be a principal text in all types of American schools: public, private, semiprivate, home, dame, parochial, etc…Today “Traits” is a must read for anyone who desires success in every area of one’s life, filled with proven principles E.G. Harvin beautifully lays out this easy to read inspiring message for us today. Thank you E.G. Harvin”
