Always positive

I met Jon on a flight to Mississippi of all places and got the chance to hear him speak to the athletes at Mississippi State University. this book dives deeper into his public speaking topics and give a clear picture of what it takes to be a effective leader.

The message is good

The message is good with many good points. However, the reader is hard to keep up with and seems in a hurry where inflection and pause would allow the message to better resonate. This is probably more enjoyable in hardcover print.

Best Jon Gordon Book !!!!!

This is my 4th Gordon Book and as much as I enjoyed the others including the Energy Bus, this was fantastic. His examples of how to be a positive leader were made relevant with his stories during his presentations. Will be listening to this again.

I was surprisingly impressed by this book.

As the book started, I thought I had made a mistake. I felt the voice was going to grate on my nerves and the story would be slow. None of that was the case. The book finished too soon. I want to share this with several people.
