On May 17, 1987, Ty Foster lost his father when an Iraqi fighter pilot fired two missiles into the USS Stark, killing 36 sailors. The knock on the door for 5-year-old Ty was the beginning of an unraveling that lasted into his 20's. In Navigate to Greatness, Ty Foster traces the arc of his life's journey, the life of a navigator. Using naval terminology, he discusses the assets and deficits of the inspired captain in the first half of his book. In the second half he addresses the desperate captain. Desperation and inspiration, says Ty, are two sides of the same coin and ought never to be separated from each other if one is to arrive safely at the appointed destination. Packed with useful stories and helpful analogies, you are certain to be motivated to take the wheel of your ship with a new sense of purpose.
