Editorial Rating



  • Applicable


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.
