Yes, because Mr. Maxwell is probably the best teacher when it comes to leadership and relationships.
I cannot think of a book that I can compare this book to. For a leader, it might rank up there with
I have heard Mr. Maxwell speak often. Mr. Shepherd captured the nuance I would have expected Mr. Maxwell to have.
I always learn something new when reading or listening to John Maxwell. Being a new leader, this book has given me ideas on how to change to meet the challenges of leadership.
I've heard this book in a much longer form years ago read by John himself. Here we have a 'new' version of the audio book and unlike many of the other books this one has a much better narrator. Here I was reminded of what is wrong with our current national and international leadership. I'm also reminded of basic leadership skills that I've forgotten and sometimes not applying and others I am. I found the book very informative about leadership and why we need some real leadership in the government, business, schools and our own homes.
This book tells you that to be a leader you have to be perfect. Basically it describes 21 characteristics that are generally appreciated by others. You could summarize this book in 2 pages. Lot of repetition and quotes, even quotes of John C. Maxwell himself! How stupid is that... I think the author has too much self-love which is obvious throughout the book. He is often describing his experiences and actions as the way to go.
