About Jack Shaw

Jack Shaw brings real world experience to whatever he writes. Not many can claim a background in two military services, enlisted in the Marines and an officer in the Air Force, followed by government service. But that's not all. His creativity goes beyond writing books.

He is the author of four books, including his best seller, The Cave Man Guide to Training and Development. His novel, In Makr's Shadow, the first of Harry's Reality series of science fiction adventures, dramatizes what happens when the world gives an evolving artificial intelligence free reign to save the world from its human inhabitants.

Jack received Bachelor of Arts degrees cum laud in both Psychology and English, and dual Master’s degrees (Speech/Dramatic Art and English) focusing on performance criticism from the University of Missouri in Columbia.

What a lucky find for me!
Jack successfully combines humor with his experience to share a wonderful viewpoint on training. Like the other reviewers commented, any one in a training or managerial role could easily apply his tips to their organization. It's a great read!

Jack takes complex theory and breaks it down into its simplest form, just as our ancestor the Cave Man would have done.
First Jack reminds us that on some level we are all "Cave Men"(or "Cave Women"). Then he shows how we can use that knowledge to be better at our jobs.
One of the key roles of a successful leader or manager is teaching. Jack's book helps simplify how you think about that part of the job, the process of training.
Interspersed with Cave Man "isms", Jack clearly illustrates ideas about how to take care of your people so they will take care of you.
While targeted at students of training and development, experienced trainers and training managers, any person in a supervisory or management role would benefit from the lessons taught in Jack Shaw's book.

I have read each of Jack's chapters in the "Cave Man" book, and each provides a no-nonsense, set of practical tips to do many of the most important aspects of training. In this day and age when so many books dwell on the theoretical and the obvious, Jack's book is a breath of fresh air. It should be in every trainer's toolkit.
