Motivational author John Maxwell’s warm, insightful book highlights the need for people to focus on something they unknowingly ignore: their attitude. All too often, people examine how they should act without examining their underlying point of view – the attitude that determines their relationship to life. Maxwell combines spiritual inspiration drawn from the Bible and Christianity with information on how to adjust your attitude.
