If you've never read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, you've been missing out on one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. If you have read the original version, then you'll love this new expanded and updated one.

Why would Dr. Maxwell make changes to his best-selling book?

"A book is a conversation between the author and reader," says Maxwell. "It's been 10 years since I wrote The 21 Laws of Leadership. I've grown a lot since then. I've taught these laws in dozens of countries around the world. This new edition gives me the opportunity to share what I've learned."

    "This didn't need to be a book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you want to know what these laws are that's fine but this book doesn't tell you anything about "how to do it!!!"..... You gotta have influence...here's a story..... Okay? so any tips on how to have influence?..... NO!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Explain how to acquire these 21 Laws.


    Did The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, 10th Anniversary Edition inspire you to do anything?

    To find better books


    Any additional comments?

    You don't need to write a book to tell someone what they need to do..... Books should be exclusive to "HOW" a person can learn to do what they need to do.

    "A Great Listen...If Applied Daily"
    Where does The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, 10th Anniversary Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love John Maxwell and his insights. This book is no exception. While studying this, it is good to go thru The 21 Most Powerful Minutes in a Leaders Day also. The two coincide with each other and really help drive the points home. If you really want to progress as a leader, in work or in life, listen to and apply these two books.

    "Great Book"
    If you could sum up The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, 10th Anniversary Edition in three words, what would they be?

    Great physiological tactics on strengthening your leadership abilities.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Influence, connection stories, relationship building with the RIGHT people into your inter circle.


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

    N/A


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

    I like the story about courage to talk with someone and not worry about being "dressed down.' Great example, it stuck with me!


    Any additional comments?

    Using Lance Armstrong is a bad idea since he won via drug use and got supported with tons of free cash from Nike. Nike never has had good relationships within their own people and has had a host of labor relationship issues with large turnover at their logistics chains.

    "Great principles."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It may cover the basics but it covers a lot of basics. It explains why some leaders and managers are the way they are. It also gives you an idea about how to deal with them.


    What about John Maxwell’s performance did you like?

    I love the fact that he give the laws and relates them with stories.

    Story
    "This is a must have for any Leader"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the book is clearly spoken, at a pace that doesn't leave you scratching your head at a "what did he say?" pace. It was spoken in that friendly, down home fashion, and so the stories kept you thinking ahead. And you find Oops, better listen up cause you just went past the point of the story, it didn't always end like you might think.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No actual Characters, these are real people. and real situations; But the MacDonald Bros Story is the best.


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

    Yes, when I heard him speak about "don't think your the leader, just cause you have a title." I have kept that story close to heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I have the Hard bound copy, the Kindle version, and this version, making it a complete set for me. I have been using it to great success of late, getting people to realize "Managers manage things; Leaders build more leaders", and this has nothing to do with the Title.

    "Excellent, better than what I expected"
    What did you love best about The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, 10th Anniversary Edition?

    Exceed expectations. The part about personal growth.


    Any additional comments?

    I remember reading the hard copy version of the book and I didn't get much past the first law: the law of the lid. Made me roll my eyes. When I heard the audio version the same thing happened, and I almost gave up on the book a second time. But the other 20 laws were actually really good and helpful. After I understood the book as a whole I actually came to appreciate the law of the lid.
