Good for leadership

Love when he compares boss with leader. The boss knows how it is done but the leader shows how it is done!

Not able to accept the narrator voice

Anytime love John Maxwell's books and their contents and this one is a must READ book. But here the most difficult part is I'm finding it too hard and distracting to listen to the narrator's voice for John Maxwell. The message and the voice is a mismatch and that takes away the focus becomes prime distraction. Don't mean to distract any other listener but this is just my experience.
5 Start for John Maxwell's book but I will give 1 star for the narrator.

Too much Jesus Christ

I think half of the book is about gods. It’s like I’m studying bible not human relationship.

A little too religious

Didn’t realize it was going to be such a religious book, could have done without that- didn’t realize that’s what I was buying

Much wisdom and soothing narration

So much wisdom in this book ..
it is to listen and repeat - also to have a hard copy book to highlight important new points.

In fact I am writing this review to comment on the lovely calm soothing narrative. His voice is full of peace and calm. I am familiar to his way and voice from other Christian books I listened to.
If you are looking for calming effect with good pacing to allow the ideas and points to sink in - then you will like the narrative and he will be your favourite.Blessings

Wish author was narrating.

The book is good but the narrator is not nearly as interesting as John Maxwell.

Lots of good info

opened my eyes to lots of things that I need to work on. It was a little struggle to finish as it didn't suck me in as some of the books lately have. It could have been because this book drew out some things that I realized I was doing wrong.

Excellent Listen

I am biased to liking pretty much everything John Maxwell writes. This book is no exception. No matter what our walk in life, it is best that we be a "people person". This book serves as a reminder to be just that. Motivating people, loving difficult people, to becoming a person people trust, are all covered in brief chapters that can be read in the morning before you get out of bed or listened to during your commute.

Good book, poor performance

I enjoyed reading this book throughout the year and I thought listening to it will be an enjoyable experience. However, the poor performance of the narrator is just a stumbling block. The pace was slow and the pauses was awkwardly long i had to speed it up to make it sound 'normal'. Otherwise I love the content of the book!
