In the way that only he can communicate, John teaches...

What's Your Growth Plan?

Are you missing something from your personal development plan? Do you have a plan? This audiobook is great for anyone who is on their journey of growth and introspection. Maxwell provides great insight about his own personal journey and provides chapter-in-review questions to help the listener dig deep within. I really enjoy listening to John C. Maxwell's voice, which is part of the reason that I purchased the audiobook, rather than than paperback or Kindle version. I recommend this book to everyone who is in search of more challenging ways to become more self-aware, and "add value to their lives and the lives of others," as Maxwell would say.

As usual John Maxwell delivers

If you could sum up The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth in three words, what would they be?

Invaluable, necessary, Insightful

What did you like best about this story?

Mr. John Maxwell has an incredible gift and is excellent at sharing his knowledge and insight in leadership and growth. This book is a great way to evaluate yourself and find the right way to grow in your everyday life.

Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to many of Mr. Maxwell's books and this one is right up at the top of the list. In some ways I wish I had listened to it before some of the others but it falls right in line with his teachings.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth?

I will apply many of the laws into my life, some have already been instilled in me and I will continue to seek every growth opportunity I can.

Any additional comments?

Again. Another incredible teaching book by Mr. John Maxwell.

I really enjoy this book

If you could sum up The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth in three words, what would they be?

The book is really long and it could be condensed, it also has to many "qoutes" that takes away originality. yet the content is really good. I wish this could come with a supplemental PDF download with summary of main rules (laws).

What did you like best about this story?

He used examples in relations to his personal life.

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

it's too dry to listen to the entire book in one sitting becuase it's not a story that it will build up to a climax and have a happy ending....

PRACTICAL TOOL FOR GROWTH

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I have recommended this book to several friends. John Maxwell at his best here. He explores the roadblocks to growth and why many people never overcome them. Each Law is concluded with an excercize to ensure that you recieve specific instruction through your own guided discovery of what steps need to be taken to ensure that you continue to grow.

Who was your favorite character and why?

John himself, and the stories that he uses from his personal life are always fun and interesting to hear him tell.

Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

John has a distinct style to any of his audio books, they have the feel of sitting across the table from his as they are read. Very easy to listen to, not diluted with complicated verbiage or technical terms. GREAT book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Become the best version of you

Awesome

This is a very useful book. I am re-reading it as I am facilitating a Master Mind Group (MMG) and I keep discovering new things. Thanks JM for a very well written, simple to read and understand book. I recommend it as a guide for anyone who truly wants to start a process of personal growth.

Really great if done with a group

At the very beginning of this book the author states very clearly that you need to do with book with a group. Please heed this advice as you will get great information here, but you can get more with others pushing you. I did this book with two friends of mine that are both leaders where they work and in our community. I can’t express in a simple review about this book. I also can’t tell you in the space limited here all that you will learn. Just trust in that you will learn more here in a group then you will as an individual.

Curiosity kills the cat

Where does The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

#1 in my self development category

What was one of the most memorable moments of The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth?

Curiosity is key to life long learning. The little girl keep asking her mother " why" until she get so frustrated and told her stop asking, and added, " no wonder curiousity kills the cat". Few minutes, the little girl went back to ask her mum " what question did the cat ask".

Which scene was your favorite?

Seek out other curious people and network with them. This way we are able to learn something new everyday. Take time at end of day and evualate our experience.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh

Any additional comments?

I used to take down quotes, Interesting statements of value, I copied it down, but after a while lose them.Now, like the book suggest, I am going to keep and organize them, so I know where to find them to re- read them again and again, or pass it along to friends who may need them. Some of the notes or saying had lifted and enpowered me. I can even draw from them when the situation is appropriate and right. Great tip!

The 15 Invaluable Laws Of Growth

As I started listening to this audio book I thought it sounded so much like a lot of other self help books I have read. But as I continued to listen, the book started to rekindle something within me I thought I had lost a fees years ago. By the end of the book this feeling was fully rekindled. I want to say thank you to John Maxwell for a well written book.

Simply amazing ...

Just finished listening to this amazing book. Without a doubt, it's one of the best books I've listened to. Mr Maxwell highlighted essential areas paramount for growth and also provided key steps and necessary actions required to grow in each of the 15 areas he detailed in his book. I'm truly challenged and motivated to do more in all these key areas. Thank you Mr Maxwell for sharing your wonderful gift.

Great Read

it's an excellent book that is well worth a read but make sure to increase the audio speed by at least 5%. It also has a massive amount of religious references.
