Maxwell doesn't know the difference between leadership and success. He makes the distinction when he defines leadership but doesn't recognize his own departure from his defining criteria. Most noteworthy is his failure to recognize the "influence" required to get your subjects to follow you to their deaths. According to Maxwell, leadership is nothing more and nothing less than influence.
Also, nowhere in the editor or consumer reviews did they clue us into the fact that Maxwell's thirty years of leadership skills largely originate in the churches that he pastored. I'd hardly attribute peoples willingness to follow religious leaders to leadership skill.
Don't go here unless you want hear one man's rationalization of how his contribution as a leader created success. Actually, some of those stories were entertaining.
In this book Mr. Maxwell states the obvious and blows his own horn while never giving insight into what it takes to develop into the kind of leader he believes he is. Waste neither your money nor your time.
This is exactly what you need to understand and grow into a great leader. I loved the content because it was thorough and easy to understand. I would recommend this to everyone desiring to be an excellent leader.
Clarity and simplicity.
His personal anecdotes and his own voice in sharing them.
3.5 hours, would love longer :-)
This book was very hard to put down! It pulled things out of me that I didn't even know were there. It was recommended to me by my trainer, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be successful in life.
Right is Right
This is one of the must have books in any leaders library. I have read several (over 25) leadership books over the years and this is in my top 3 of all time.

You can't call yourself a leader if you have not read this exceptional book. It is in the "Leadership Cannon."
