More About Elbert Hubbard

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Elbert Hubbard was born in 1859 in Bloomington, Illinois, and never received more than a grade-school education. A self-made man in many respects, Hubbard filled in the gaps in his knowledge through voracious reading, a passion which became manifest in the founding of the Roycroft Shop, a publishing house specializing in deluxe bindings. He wrote a series of 182 biographies under the series title Little Journeys to Homes of the Great and also published two magazines, The Philistine and The Fra, producing much of the content himself. Elbert Hubbard and his wife, Alice, were traveling to England on the Lusitania and went down with the ship when it was struck by a German torpedo on May 7th, 1915.

Elbert Hubbard lived in Bloomington, in the state of Illinois. Elbert Hubbard was born in 1859 and died in 1915.

A Message to Garcia  Mar 24, 2008
This is a terrific essay published very badly by Filiquarian Publishing. Almost unreadable with awkwardly inserted "sidenotes" and strange formating. An additional prayer, not in the original essay or by Hubbard as far as I can find out, ends the text. Download or buy another version. I ordered two of these before I's read enough reviews of the specific Filiquarian edition to know to get something else. Further it is NOT a military story, though it is relevant to military service. The essay was inspired by the actions of Rowan but do not describe them in any detail. It is thoughts on the superior/ subordinates - employer/employees relationship. I, like Hubbard, have been both employer and employee. Until you've been an employer don't gripe about what Hubbard has to say. He speaks the truth of the value of an employee or subordinate who will carry a message to Garcia. Your best is what is desired and rewarded (or paid for) not just you showing up. It's a joint effort. Put your ego aside. Hubbard's words aspire to a morality that seems sadly in short supply. Or maybe not, Larry the Cable Guy might understand: Just "Get R done".
5 stars for the essay, 1 star for this edition.
Great read for your staff...  Mar 18, 2008
If you are a manager, make sure your staff reads this (but provide context, it can be misinterpreted!). If you are staff, make sure you take the message to Garcia by reading "A Message to Garcia". Easy, half hour read that is worth re-reading every once in a while.
Simple Message - make it happen  Feb 28, 2008
This book is a classic. When I reported to my first assignment as a young Army officer, my company commander had me read this book. I am glad that he did. It is short and to the point. The message of "make it happen" really resonated with me then, and it still does.

I recently purchased the book and am having my colleagues at work read it. Most had never heard of it, and appreciated the content. Therefore, I recommend it is a quick read and reminder that the world is in desperate need of people who spend less time complaining, pondering, posturing, posing, back-stabbing, you name it....but actually get things done.
Download for free  Feb 24, 2008
This is an open source essay and you can download it for free from the internet. Do not buy this.
Timeless  Dec 8, 2007
Hubbard's timeless piece on duty, committment and service to others (versus service to self)should be required reading and fodder for discussion among high school and college students, as well as young military service men and women. The book is perfectly short, meaning those that hate to read can easily work through it without dread and be able to fully partcipate in what would hopefully be spirited discussion.

As a society we've given birth to, and raised, those we refer to a Generation Y (as in Why?). Their willingness to question isn't inherently a bad thing and certainly has its benefits. However, on occasion the inquisitive members of Generation Y find some need to ask questions as to the worth of an assignment or inventing excuses as to why the assignment or mission isn't worthy. In order to be balanced these young folks also need to develop a sense of duty, accept responsibility and tasks without question and frankly, just deliver the Message to Garcia!
