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.
There are skips and other digital noise in this, so be aware. It's a good book, you know it has "if you can't make heat, get out of the kitchen!" All that leadership rhetoric crap, but hey, lead on.
Audible obsessed lifelong learner.
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.
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.
I love the fact that he give the laws and relates them with stories.
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.
No actual Characters, these are real people. and real situations; But the MacDonald Bros Story is the best.
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.
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.
The book made me understand what a true leader must possess. The ability to care enough about people to make them better leaders by working each day to work on my own weaknesses to grow as a leader.
"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!
"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!
