    "Good ideas that just make sense"
    Where does The Way of the Shepherd rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is a book about management but written in the format of a novel. I loved the ideas but the novel aspect was a little cheesy. No regrets reading the book as the info was excellent.

    "The concepts just stay in my head"

    This book really packs a punch. The concepts make so much sense. Even now when dealing with people, pictures painted in this book pop into my remembrance which helps me deal with the situation.

    I highly recommend this book for business and church (and any) leader.

    "Great Book!"
    Would you listen to The Way of the Shepherd again? Why?

    This was a great book. The reading was believable and easy to listen to. I did have to listen to a couple of the chapters twice because my background is not in management and the ideas were so new to me. I like the way the writer incorporated chapter summaries into the book.

    Story
    "An Incredible Message"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - Here is why - this teaching is profound. It gives examples of handling people in a way I have never been taught. It also teaches that a leader has a lot of responsibility but provides a very proven path to leading people well. Also, from a Christian perspective, it gives an idea of how God looks at us. Every person so far, who I have been teaching about this or given books away on shepherding has reported that they have gained in life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite Character was Dr. Neuman. He is the man that taught Ted McBride, the man who wanted to have this book written so others could get the benefits and the great life he enjoyed. Mr. McBride worked his way up through the ranks and moved into the helm of a fortune 50 company with the highest retention rate of the all the fortune 50 companies. The reason was, he lead his people like a very good shepherd leads his sheep and Dr. Neuman taught him.


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

    Marc, has a good voice and seems to appreciate what he is reading. This helps us to absorb the teaching. I rarely want to master a topic, but this book being read to me has me wanting to become a professional in leadership, not just for my own benefit, but to give the best experience to others who I lead.


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

    No, only because I am not that way. I limit my time and listen when it fits.


    Any additional comments?

    There are only a few books I have read in my life that are must reads to me and this is one of them. I have a successful business and I am also a Pastor. My application is a bit different than many but when I gave a similar book away to different people going through hard times, all reported they got a better understanding of who God was. On another side to this book, it presents a message that lies hidden in it about who Jesus, the good shepherd is and what he has to offer our souls. My entire life on that plane alone has been changed. Hard ship no longer hurts like it used to. All of my people in church are seeing life in an improved way. My customers and friends who were hurting all reported gaining in perspective on their hard time and got comfort seeing God in a better way towards them. I noticed one lady in particular became a lot more settled in life. For today this is the best I can share.

    "Really Great Book on how to manage people"
    Would you listen to The Way of the Shepherd again? Why?

    The book uses analogies of a sheep herder that can be easily applied to all management situations and personalities on any team. I must read for any manager/leader.
