    Continuing the inspiring story begun in his first book, Every Second Counts captures the mind-set of a man who has beaten incredible odds and considers each day an opportunity for excellence.

    "Review from a non cyclist"
    Overall

    I am not a cyclist nor a cancer survivor, and I think this is a great book. I enjoyed it thoroughly, I listened to the whole unabridged audio in just a couple of days. It is very motivating and down to earth. Many of Lance's principles could be applied to many disciplines in life. I love the part where he talked the readers through his personal accounts of the Tour de France in great details. Unlike many other audiobooks that weren't read by the authors, I think this book is very well read by the narrator.

  • 3: 16: The Numbers of Hope

    Story

    A 26-word parade of hope: beginning with God, ending with life, and urging us to do the same. Brief enough to write on a napkin or memorize in a moment, yet solid enough to weather 2,000 years of storms and questions. If you know everything in the Bible, return here. We all need the reminder. The heart of the human problem is the heart of the human. And God's treatment is prescribed in John 3:16. He loves. He gave. We believe. We live.

    Overall

    Great book but it could've been better if it was read by Max Lucado himself. I have read most of Max' books and have also listened to Max Lucado. Although this is a great audio book, somehow it just doesn't have that "Max Lucado's magic". The text seems dead when it's read by someone who doesn't share the same passion as the author. The content is great, however if you've heard Max reading his book before, you will be disappointed with how this book is read.

    In this enduring volume, which has already sold over 500,000 copies, Maxwell shares his heart for developing exceptional leaders. Timeless principles applied in your life - and the life of your organization - will bring about positive change through personal integrity and self-discipline.

    Overall

    This is a great book but has been poorly cut down. It has been "abridged" too much; and the top quality audio is unsatisfactory. It is still a great simple book nonetheless. If you enjoy other John Maxwell's stuffs, you will enjoy this one too.
