    Leaderships skills are very important in my line of field. I am always looking for hints and tricks that are going to keep me ahead of the game. I loved this book because it not only explored some new methods that I could use but it explored more with some old methods I already knew but added some new and exciting methods. I am already seeing improvements. !

    "Leading the Pack"
    Would you listen to Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely. It's jam packed with so much information that you could probably listen to it 3 times and not get everything.


    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As always, Mr. Mackey delivers things cleanly and crisply with no mistakes. I seriously couldn't identify a time where he tripped over a word or sentence. It's Impressive!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The section where it speaks on HOW you actually become a leader was specifically striking. Other audiobooks on this topic often just speak about why you should become a leader and how it should benefit you without giving you the appropriate steps to get there.


    Any additional comments?

    Even if you don't work in a corporate environment, leadership can benefit you in almost everything. From parenting, volunteering, and more, learning how to take control of a situation can be highly beneficial!

    "So Many Suggestions, You Won't Be Able to Choose"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The spoken word is sometimes more powerful that reading the word. Joshua Mackey makes it easy to understand and sounds enthusiastic all through the book. It gives you motivation to try some of the suggestions on how to become a leader.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader?

    I really enjoyed the Leadership quotes. I wrote a few down on index cards and glued a strip magnet to the back. I placed the quotes on my filing cabinet at work so I always have some inspiration when I need it at work.


    Have you listened to any of Joshua Mackey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Joshua Mackey is an excellent person to have reading any book. His voice is pleasant and his inflection keeps you interested. The reading of this book was excellent, as usual.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It inspired me. It is a non-fiction book, so it is hard to make one laugh or cry, but I did get a great deal of inspiration and motivation to become a great leader from the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is extremely helpful because it gives you 100 very good suggestions on becoming a leader and doesn't sugar coat it. It gives you what to prepare for and explains success and failure at becoming a leader. Planning, goals commitment, the art of persuasion, negotiation, decision making and other skills are discussed as are things that go on behind the scenes at making a good leader like meditation, physical exercise and mental exercise. The encourages you to make a personal mission statement that you can be true to.

    With 100 amazing suggestions on how to unleash the inner leader in you, there is no excuse for not taking action. Even if you find just a handful of ideas that work fr you it s well worth it! I found so many great ideas that I can apply to my personal and professional life, and many more that I can easily modify to also fit my unique situation and my needs.The book is laid out in a clear and organized way that makes it easy to listen to. Author McCloud and narrator Mackey so a wonderful job with this presentation and I found myself listening with great interest and wondering why it was over so soon! So stop wishing you could be a better leader and start working towards that. Your future is writing and McCloud has the book that can help you out!

    "Excellent book to help you hone leadership skills"
    Would you listen to Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader again? Why?

    Yes, I would. Leadership is a great audio book and can really help those who have little to no leadership skills gain the skills they need for their work. The book also spoke of famous leaders like Martin Luther King JR and even President Madison who had the best leadership skills.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader?

    There were two most memorable moments to me. The first is in chapter one, where Mr. McCloud says how anyone can be a manager, but it takes someone with a positive outlook on life to be a leader. I feel this is true because if you want people to follow you and work with you, you need to be positive and know what you are doing, which most positive people do. The second was in chapter three, where Ace talks about things you can do at home to improve your skills, like reflecting and thinking.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?

    N/A.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I did. It was an incredible audio book with so much information that helped me hone my leadership skills. Chapters one and three especially helped me. I especially loved the quotes by famous leaders at the end of the book. My favorite being "whatever you are, be a good one" by President Lincoln.


    Any additional comments?

    Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader is an astounding and inspiring book that really helps people, whether they are already leaders or those who are more like followers, hone and improve their leadership skills. Its a book I couldn't stop listening to and took notes to help my own leadership skills. This is an incredible book that can help anyone, no matter who they are or what age they are.

    "Leadership is a MUST listen to!"

    Leadership is a valuable skill and quite helpful in the workplace, at school, or at home. I am currently in college pursuing my Bachelor’s degree and I have found that college comes much easier when you have leadership skills. I have always struggled with leadership skills. In high school when we had group work to do, I was rarely the leader. Now that I am about to graduate from undergraduate school I am ready to become a better leader. I have been trying to find a great audio book that I can listen to on the go that is all about how I can become a better leader. I finally found Ace McCloud’s audio book on The Top 100 Best Ways To Be A Great Leader. I saw he was a best selling author, and figured I would try out the book at a great price. Such a great idea that was! This audio book taught me that anyone can become a leader. All I need to do is build up my self-confidence and once I have that, I will be able to persevere and even change the world through my leadership abilities. This book showed me that it is important to have a positive attitude if I want to become a great leader. I cannot wait to apply the leadership skills I learned from Ace McCloud to my remaining time at college and throughout my career!

    Constructive, Inspirational, and Motivational.


    Have you listened to any of Joshua Mackey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have. He is a excellent narrator and I look forward to hearing him narrating books. I only wish he could narrate all the book I purchase. He has done just as well as a job on this book as his others! Always a pleasure listening to him read.

    Unlock your potential to become better, be a leader!

    "Tons of Top Tips for Being a Better Leader!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know how to get more out of work colleagues or just from every day life. There are so many tips here that really struck a chord with me. I've read a couple of guides before that said they would give advice on being a leader but this book really breaks it down for you and gives so many examples of how you can take action. From planning better, setting goals or how you interact with people it all helps and just makes so much sense.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favourite?

    The narrator was excellent and did a great job of making the book come to life. He placed emphasis where it was needed and was always engaging.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened to this all in one go on my commute to work.


    Any additional comments?

    Whether you're in charge of people or just want help dealing with family and friends this book is very good at providing information on how you can deal with situations and provide leadership. It really helps you understand how important it is to try and identify with every individual and be more aware of how best to approach each situation.

    "a useful guide to leadership skills"
    Where does Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am becoming a bit of an Ace McCloud/Josh Mackey groupie - the books are always concise and well written, and beautifully read by Mackey. This one is right up there with my favourite so far which was his great book on health.


    What other book might you compare Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader to, and why?

    I think it is a good book in its own right. I don't ever read books to compare them to another one, I read them for their own individual approach and take on subjects.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Not entirely applicable as this is a non fiction title, but the idea that leadership skills can be learnt, and that with perseverence and the right attitude to learning you can become a great leader is encouraging.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    not as such, but it was thoroughly enjoyable and a great addition to my incar library.

    "Like opening a treasure trove..."
    Would you listen to Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader again? Why?

    Yes, I would. Leadership presents a huge amount of information in a great point-by-point format. Even though I was making notes, the pace is fast and so much knowledge is being imparted that I think this book deserves a second listen. After all, there's no point in being inspired if 90% of what you hear is lost or forgotten.


    What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

    Amazing narration. Leadership is such a fast paced read, which Joshua delivers with a depth of enthusiasm that breeds engagement with the listener. There's a lovely moment where he illustrates a point by talking in a dreary voice, which was such a contrast that it had me giggling out loud.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did!


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent book for anyone who wishes to lead and nurture others, whether at work, in the family or in a social context. Primarily it's a walk through the character traits needed to become a great leader and so much in there is pertinent to all aspects of life. This book is for you if you want to lead, rather than 'manage' people and want to be inspirational, effective and affirming. My favourite of the 100 "ways" was to ask questions of yourself and your people, but to ask questions about *solutions*, not about problems.

These exercises included questions you can ask yourself and strategies you can put in place to maximize efficiency and achieve goals.

    "Great tips on how to be a great leader"
    What did you like most about Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader?

    Becoming a great Leader can completely change your life. Imagine if, rather than following others, you were the one making decisions about the your life was run. That is what this book can make available to you - a way to empower yourself and take control of your life.

    It does this by setting out clear strategies for improving the manner in which you interact with people and these enable you to become a better and more effective leader.


    What other book might you compare Leadership: The Top 100 Best Ways to Be a Great Leader to, and why?

    In contrast to many books on Leadership, this audiobook goes further than the theory, or giving numerous examples or recounting the well-worn anecdotes. Ace McCloud throws in tip after tip, covering everything you need to be an effective leader in any organisation.


    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Once again Joshua Mackey lends his vibrant tones to this audiobook. The result is that the whole reading is a pleasure to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I really appreciated the advice on the core life skills which will enable anyone to form their inner leader first before unleashing it on the outside world. Another great section is that which deals with the inevitable stresses and strains that leadership can throw at you.

    Perhaps the key area that this book covers is about how to foster a productive rapport with those around you and to develop really helpful habits.
