I wish I could've read this at 20 years old.

Really great book!I think John Maxwell's greatest gift is adding depth and understanding to commonsense. He states what should be obvious, but he does so in such a way that your understanding is broadened and deepened many times over.

Are you a talent +person?

Great book. We all need to become talent + people. Talent along is not sufficient. There's a seed of greatness in every positive thing we do.

Very well written

I really enjoyed this book. John Maxwell carefully disassembles the meaning of talent and through that process reveals great insight as to why it's just not enough. This book will strengthen your understanding of what talent is and what it isn't. It will also help you discover weak areas that you can become aware of, while helping you embrace your strengths.

An excellent book for building yourself

This book really drives home the point that as the title says, talent is never enough. John Maxwell provides examples from a number of industries and walks of life, in various time periods, and different countries, and shows that talent Plus hard work is really what it takes.
