    Default Eat Stress...

    Okay, I've heard some good things from/about CaptBob and his "Eat Stress for Breakfast" books and information, but I was wondering what you guys think of it all. I've decided that I'm going to give it my all, and go for a full-time department... and I want EVERY advantage and piece of knowledge I can get my hands on. I want to "win" this job hands down.

    So... what do you guys think? From what I've heard so far, his programs sound excellent. Do you all agree? I would like to hear your input as well CaptBob.

    Thanks guys!

    I made the same decision and "went for it" as well. What's more. . . I got it! The I didn't use the program but I did buy the Eat Stress book and, with no disrespect to Captain Bob, I wasn't too excited about it. HOWEVER, I did go to the web site and get a list of sample interview questions and 'nuggets' (I think they were called) and I honestly think that those two things contributed significantly to my success. I sat down behind my computer and answered all of the questions and I took the nuggets to heart. Concentrate on the interview and good luck to you.

    Thanks GreatPlainsFF, that's what I'm looking for... honesty. I don't mind spending a little money on a program that would help to award me with a carreer like this, but I don't want to get burned either. I think I may go ahead and get some of his stuff. He seems to have his "ducks" in a row, and every little bit that helps will put me that much closer.

    Anyone else have any thoughts?

    Although the book has been translanted into 21 countries, it is not the program. You want to get our Entry Level Program. Over 2,000 candidates have received their badge through this program. It comes with a no questions asked full refund if you not satisfied. You are at no risk except you might get a badge.

    This just arrived:

    Captain Bob
    A thousand thanks. You and Rob have my deepest gratitude. I began processing for our cities fire department last august. It was a grueling experience. I am 31 and felt this would be my only chance.

    I didn't find your web site until after my written exams, which I passed and made the cut mostly due to military preference. I read every article on your web site. I cut and pasted every notable nugget of advice. I studied them and applied your techniques. I found a huge amount information on the site. I passed my physical agility.

    I was very nervous about the polygraph and spoke with Rob, who calmed me down and gave me great advice after reviewing my history. Both you and your son responded with great advice to several emails.

    I ordered your special report on physiological exams and felt so empowered during my exams it was a joke. It was like I was in their heads instead of the other way around. I passed all with flying colors.

    I got my call; today was my last day in my civilian job. I start academy on March 3rd and am the happiest man on the face of the earth. Thanks so much and God bless you.

    Default You'll figure it out...

    I have been in the fire service for awhile (full-time)
    and thought I had the orals boards nailed down. I
    ran into Captain Bob and first thought- "This is
    just another guy making some money off of me."

    I admit I was wrong. Capt. Bob and the eatstress.com
    is just another tool for the Firefighter Candidate
    and current Professional looking to promote. He has
    done some of the leg work to MAYBE put YOU on the
    right track. I say maybe because he DOES NOT give
    you answers, but rather a little mental kick to get
    the mind juices flowing. He is also a nice person
    willing to spend some time on the phone with you ON
    HIS DIME! (free phone call) Go look at the site.
    Who else has pre-done all of that research for you??
    I bet not many.

    So, contact him, check out his program or dont do
    anything at all. I know once you take your first oral
    board and notice you said "ummmmmm" and "ehhhhh" a few
    extra times and not making the A band, you then might
    want to look around for help. Note- If you're
    planning on using "team player", "I like to help
    people" and "I want to give back to the community"
    in your interview, might as well stay home. They
    have been delivered and worked over for decades
    by previous candidates. Help or not, beter get a
    game plan together!

    I can give you my personal account about working
    with Bob. I was in the testing process for Fire
    Captain and applied some of his knowledge in the
    "open box" section. I know I scored higher
    in that section thanks to his insight. I did
    not copy what he told me, but rather used some of
    his thoughts and molded them for my situation.

    LASTLY- Capt. Bob is a Firehouse Magazine authur.
    Yes, he has written articles and is an icon on
    THIUS SITE/ and this site's magazine. WAKE UP!
    The man must have something to offer?

    So, look around. See who is really willing to help
    you. Chances are, it is a slim list of people.

    Good luck!
