At the very beginning of this book the author states very clearly that you need to do with book with a group. Please heed this advice as you will get great information here, but you can get more with others pushing you. I did this book with two friends of mine that are both leaders where they work and in our community. I can’t express in a simple review about this book. I also can’t tell you in the space limited here all that you will learn. Just trust in that you will learn more here in a group then you will as an individual.
I can has read
Practical, convenient, concise
Many of the books that I've read have been vary narrowly tailored. They have been focused on a more particular outcome such as getting promoted at work or hired or having a great marriage. This seems to be the first, or maybe second, that focuses on becoming growing your value as an individual.
I would have read the book like it was an instruction manual. Maxwell reads it like it is a mentoring session. There is a texture to his reading it that I would not have gotten reading it myself.
The Law of The Rubber Band, 'Growth Stops When You Lose the Tension Between Where You Are and Where You Could Be.' Honestly, this idea isn't new to me but it gives a positive context to a trait that I kind-of felt guilty about. I like that feeling of stretching toward a goal and sometimes feel that my stretching makes other people feel uncomfortable.
I enjoyed the book but John Maxwells narration is a bit slow and boring.
none..its not that kind of book.
Sean Van Zant
Definitely in the top ten.
I liked the law of intentionality because it is so foundational for all the other laws, and anything else for that matter to stand on.
He was refreshing, lively, and knew how to emphasize the right points of all of the stories in the book.
To see the laws like strong guidelines to be followed, and to always be intentional about following them.
I listened to this book more than three times. I have given away several print copies of this book also. This audio book is a must listen to if you are serious about growth in any area of your life!
