Only have the audio book.
Coach Woodson - helping create more great leaders.
The passion on why he published the book comes across very well in the audio version.

Very practical and insightful book. Can use the advice in everyday life.
Very insightful, this book is a practical guide for anyone at any level of leadership. To me personally it highlighted the importance of people and my relationships with them. I'll be reading this book a few times again. I can already see the positive effects at work.
Are you really an effective leader?
Lots of practical advice for becoming not only a leader with influence, but replicating yourself as well for sustainability. Took a lot of great soundbites from this book and had many "aha" moments. I'm encouraging my leadership team to read as well.
Excellent leadership manual. No one could live up to level 5 expectations but the world would be great place if enough people tried. Practical guide to the principles that not only make great leaders but, more importantly, make great human beings. Must read for any student of leadership.
Don't miss the example of John Wooden as the quintessential Level 5 leader
Clearly believes what he says
Best to listen slowly and take notes.
Here is something about myself.
Definitely, this book is situated for everyone. You can learn something whether you are the best leader out there or the least competent one. By listening to this audiobook, you will learn how to identify yourself on the 5 levels of leadership and how to improve upon. There are a lot of details and examples so you won't get lost.
The approach is very people oriented. Even if you're not a manager like me, you will learn some very useful things for your future. This thing is literally saturated with information in a good way.
It's my first audiobook actually!
I picked the audiobook version because it's audio. There's some PDF provided with the Audiobook, they can become very useful for your self evaluation.
If you like to improve yourself, you won't regret this purchase. I will definitely listen to this 7h book a second time.
I haven't seen the printed version yet, but to me seeing and listening are two complementary things. I am from Brazil, so I need to listen as much as I can. When I read, it is more to learn grammar, spelling, those stuff. When I listen, I get a lot more. Other than I can listen in situations in which would be impossible for me to read. Both are important, because the book gives more time to ponder over issues.
Non fictional, no characters.
I haven't. I liked his voice and the speed with which he read: not too fast, not too slow. I would buy another books narrated by him.
It is not that kind of book.
It is an excellent book to buy. I liked his concept of five levels of leadership and that you can have people to whom you are in the first or second level, at the same time while with other people you may be higher or lower. This book has a good basis on human knowledge. It is not a book teaching how to use people. It is rather a book about being humane, passionate, open, frank, loyal, sincere. In three words: a great leader. It deserves to be read carefully and applied in real life. Happy will be the man who can say yes to eight of his ten questions of leadership. If he he can say yes to all of them, he is already blessed. It has something of the spirit of Tao and a lot of the good old school of How to make friends and influence people, modernized to today's world.
I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.
I must confess that I got this book for the wrong reasons. The synopsis that described the "position leader" was a perfect description of my boss, but I'm still glad I read/listened to it. I used to own my own business, and it was poor leadership that brought it under. I see a lot of the mistakes that I made in the past, and now I know what to do differently.
Best of the bunch from Maxwell. You will not regret the decision to use the book to take your leadership attributes to the highest level.

Maxwell's vision is to groom people into talented focused individuals making a difference in their chosen professions. This work is an example of superior thinking and principle application (s).
Love to read, and Audible has made the two-hour daily commute enjoyable!
One of Maxwell's best. Description of the 5 levels of leadership (position, permission, production, people development and pinnacle) and overview of how each level builds on the others.
Maxwell goes in depth of pros/cons of each level, how to build on each level, and how to prepare to go to the next level. Often we are not aware of the transitions needed, but this makes it very clear.
In my work coaching, I see how some of this will help others.
Maxwell reading his own work was wonderful.
