Author John C. Maxwell follows his solid 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork with this book, which provides 25 essential “principles” for fostering interpersonal relationships. Maxwell uses poems, quotations and stories about such varied individuals as Benjamin Franklin, Martin Luther King Jr., Dale Carnegie, Barbara Walters, Pete Rose and Billy Martin to enliven his short chapters about the small, important steps that build better relationships. Unfortunately, the book seems slightly forced, stretching its theme to cover overlapping and somewhat arbitrary principles. Still, its broadly based, motivational stories make it spiritually uplifting. While this entry is not as compelling as Maxwell’s work on leadership, getAbstract believes it will be very useful to those who want to build stronger friendships and aren’t sure how to start.
