Why you should read How to Influence People

John C. Maxwell has sold more than 19 million books. Jim Dornan has mentored hundreds of thousands of people. This leadership tome, co-authored by Maxwell and Dornan, reflects their larger-than-life perspective. As one reviewer said, it functions as a “coach’s playbook, a pastor’s guide and a parent’s lifeline.” Any Maxwell book is a trove of inspiring anecdotes, and he and Dornan pepper this easy-to-read, sincere volume with memorable, uplifting stories. getAbstract recommends their warm, old-fashioned advice. While neither new nor controversial in any way, it offers pleasant reading that will inspire you as it teaches you how to exert a positive influence.
