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.
Internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, and author John C. Maxwell has taken this million-seller and made it even better:
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."

"Our nation and its institutions are crying out for leaders. John Maxwell...shows us the true path to leadership through the application of timeless principles supported by the bedrock of personal character." (Edward C. Emma, President & CEO, Jockey International, Inc.)
"An irrefutable must-read on leadership that is a simple and powerful list of guidelines to help build leadership in many areas." (S. Truett Cathy, founder and chairman, Chick-fil-a, Inc.)
"John Maxwell understands what it takes to be a leader, and he puts it within reach with The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. I recommend this to anyone who desires success at the highest level, whether on the ball field, in the boardroom, or from the pulpit." (Tom Landry, former head coach, Dallas Cowboys)
I'm a reader, but I've been finding myself on the go a lot more lately. Audible to the rescue.
This is a great listen for someone who is interested in learning more about leadership. I put off buying this book because it was "only" around three hours long and I always want to get the most for my credits, but I really appreciated Maxwell being succinct. If you can communicate an idea clearly in a minute, do me a favor and don't take ten, amiright?
One nice thing about this book being short is that it basically hits the high points and there aren't any slow spots. I've listed through it twice and have found each listen to be beneficial.
Definitely worth a credit if you are interested in expanding your knowledge base on leadership.
This book takes a comprehensive view of leadership principles which seems overwhelming and illustrates through real life examples, some from the author and many from other examples in recent history, their importance. The author provides the audio for this book so you can here his emphasis through the tone in his voice when he urges the reader to take action and the consequences of doing so or not doing so in some cases. The chapters are not long so they are easy to complete at one sitting of 15 min per chapter or so. If you want to become an effective leader, listen and then act.
To be a more effective person in life in general this is a must listen! Leadership is present in a lot of different areas in life to moving around in business and to even raising kids. And the audio isn't that long so it's short and to the point.
I was introduced to the 21 Laws when I signed up for a leadership class at my church. So to get a head start I wanted listen to this version before the class started and I'm glad I did. It's so phenomenal! I've learned so much and look forward to the class and applying new leadership skills in my life.
Awesome book...listened once..extremely valuable. .listened twice. .took notes...will continue to listen in the future and will be purchasing the book tomorrow
Digs into the qualities of great leaders with real life examples. Gives the individual who wants to be a better leader guidance on how to continually build their knowledge and skill set through intentional self development steps. It was a very inspiring read.
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 physiological tactics on strengthening your leadership abilities.
Influence, connection stories, relationship building with the RIGHT people into your inter circle.
I like the story about courage to talk with someone and not worry about being "dressed down.' Great example, it stuck with me!
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.
"How to become a better leader?"
This is number one leadership book I have read up till now.
I read this book in one day. This is all about how to start the process of becoming the better leader in your organization and in your private life. I recommend this book for all managers but also for all parents!
Apart from 1 book on leadership... I believe this book is the best! I recommend it for every human being.
"great thought provoking peice for the development."
A really useful book for a developing leader, there is alot that you can take away and analyse your own leadership with.
"some useful observations"
A well narrated piece. Content-wise it could do with some updating, reference to Larnce Armstrong for example. otherwise I found it provided some useful anecdotes to describe observations on leadership characteristics. However don't expect this to tell you how to be a better leader. Hope this helps!
