    "What's Your Growth Plan?"

    Are you missing something from your personal development plan? Do you have a plan? This audiobook is great for anyone who is on their journey of growth and introspection. Maxwell provides great insight about his own personal journey and provides chapter-in-review questions to help the listener dig deep within. I really enjoy listening to John C. Maxwell's voice, which is part of the reason that I purchased the audiobook, rather than than paperback or Kindle version. I recommend this book to everyone who is in search of more challenging ways to become more self-aware, and "add value to their lives and the lives of others," as Maxwell would say.

    "As usual John Maxwell delivers"
    If you could sum up The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth in three words, what would they be?

    Invaluable, necessary, Insightful


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mr. John Maxwell has an incredible gift and is excellent at sharing his knowledge and insight in leadership and growth. This book is a great way to evaluate yourself and find the right way to grow in your everyday life.


    Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of Mr. Maxwell's books and this one is right up at the top of the list. In some ways I wish I had listened to it before some of the others but it falls right in line with his teachings.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth?

    I will apply many of the laws into my life, some have already been instilled in me and I will continue to seek every growth opportunity I can.


    Any additional comments?

    Again. Another incredible teaching book by Mr. John Maxwell.

    "I really enjoy this book"
    If you could sum up The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth in three words, what would they be?

    The book is really long and it could be condensed, it also has to many "qoutes" that takes away originality. yet the content is really good. I wish this could come with a supplemental PDF download with summary of main rules (laws).


    What did you like best about this story?

    He used examples in relations to his personal life.


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

    it's too dry to listen to the entire book in one sitting becuase it's not a story that it will build up to a climax and have a happy ending....

    "Great audio on growth and development!"
    If you could sum up The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, practical and well-organized!


    What other book might you compare The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth to and why?

    This was my first book along the lines of growth, so I can't offer a comparison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So much of the information was valuable, it's hard to choose just one. However, I'm definitely planning to create a "growth plan" which is one of the suggestions from the book. I'm also planning to re-read with notebook in hand to take notes.


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

    The book is pretty long, so I never planned to listen in one sitting, however I travel a lot for work and I was able to knock a couple hours non stop on several occasions, because it was so interesting. I didn't even miss the radio with this audio book!


    Any additional comments?

    Great audio! I'm looking forwarding to listening again, while taking notes as opposed to listening while driving. I really enjoyed it and feel that it provided a lot of information for my growth and development.

    Story
    "Inspiring and thought provoking"
    Where does The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't normally listen to "self help" books so I as far as those types of books go I would put it in the top 10.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth?

    About the chicken's always drowning when the floods came and the wife advising the husband to switch to raising ducks.


    Which character – as performed by John C. Maxwell – was your favorite?

    none really stand out that I can recall.


    What did you learn from The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth that you would use in your daily life?

    Probably the law of intentionality - you have to focus with intent if you want to grow.


    Any additional comments?

    Would like to listen to it again. It is about how you have to take control of your life with purpose and intent and not just let time go by. Not only do we need to take a more active role in our personal development and growth but we are here to help others achieve their best as well.

    "PRACTICAL TOOL FOR GROWTH"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have recommended this book to several friends. John Maxwell at his best here. He explores the roadblocks to growth and why many people never overcome them. Each Law is concluded with an excercize to ensure that you recieve specific instruction through your own guided discovery of what steps need to be taken to ensure that you continue to grow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John himself, and the stories that he uses from his personal life are always fun and interesting to hear him tell.


    Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    John has a distinct style to any of his audio books, they have the feel of sitting across the table from his as they are read. Very easy to listen to, not diluted with complicated verbiage or technical terms. GREAT book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Become the best version of you

    "Awesome."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth to be better than the print version?

    John Maxwell never disappoints and this book is no exception. Extraordinary depth and he nicely ties in his traditional topic of leadership. Maxwell's personal growth is present through the development of his books, and as an author has the utmost integrity. Great read, great knowledge and awesome experience 10/10.
