    John C. Maxwell combines insights from 30-plus years of leadership with observations from business, politics, sports, religion, and military conflict to bring you a revealing study of the laws of leadership that govern your personal and organizational effectiveness.

    Overall

    I found all these laws concise and logical and worthy of frequent review. However I agree with another reviewer in that it is not a "how to" audio recording. For example, if you don't have a leader you can learn from, or if you have a lid on your vision, Maxwell will not tell you how to compensate and what the cost of not having these laws will be. As a leader or somebody planning to be a leader, you must decide where to put your energy, and this recording will not help you there. Although some people do not like the fact that much of his experience comes from leadership in a church, I don't mind. The only possible shortcoming I see is that in that setting one will find fewer toxic characters. However, with his many examples, I believe you will be convinced he has done a fair amount of research, and that these laws are indeed ‘irrefutable’. Before I take my next job, I’ll listen to this to remind me what to look for. Complimentary reading to this is something like Jason Jenning’s “Think Big, Act Small”, where you will see some of these laws confirmed to exist in the best companies.

    Cialdini provides fascinating insight into how people avoid the work of making decisions and why they comply with requests in business settings. He has identified six principles which are so powerful that they generate desirable change in the widest range of circumstances.

    Overall

    Just what you would expect of an experienced academic. Highly informative and impeccable logic. I am reading his book now.
