What is height bias? Why do taller people tend to obtain leadership positions? What can individuals do to maximize their presence? What can we learn from shorter iconic men such as Audie Murphy, Mark Zuckerberg, José Altuve and Kevin Hart? Books tend to be one-size-fits-all. You will be hard-pressed to find anything addressing the unique challenges of one particular group: short guys. With this in mind, Amazing Heights is the first personal development book dedicated to the short guy fraternity.
“Amazing Heights takes an honest look at the data behind height and success – in careers, sports and romance. It also offers lots of encouragement and tangible tactics men can use to reach great heights.” ~ Brock McGoff, Founder, The Modest Man
Head-to-toe measurements do not dictate the heights we can achieve in life. If you’re looking for education, motivation, or strategies, think of this book as a tool to level the playing field, or at least, to better understand it.

“The best tip I could tell you is to be active. So many people talk about what they want to do and they just love words. Put actions behind your words. Don’t be a talker, be a doer.”
— Kevin Hart, Comedian (5’4″)
Seth Ulinski is a native of New Hampshire and resides in Dover, NH. He graduated from Clemson University, South Carolina, with a B.A. in Spanish and International Trade. While attending Clemson, Seth became a member of Pi Kappa Phi, a national social fraternity. At 5’7’’, he is also a member of the short guy fraternity.
Since he was a kid, Seth has been fascinated with sports. Seth played basketball, baseball, and football until a car accident in his sophomore year of high school. Multiple surgeries and a long recovery process gave him a stronger appreciation for seatbelts and good health. As an adult, Seth was diagnosed with rare autoimmune disorders, requiring thyroid and eye surgery. While educating himself on how to manage these life-altering events, Seth realized the value of self-care. Today, he’s grateful for these setbacks, drawing strength, courage, and wisdom from them as part of his wider personal development work.
