What an excellent book! Whether you seek to enhance or even simply define your leadership this book will challenge you and give you practical wisdom and tools to soar above mediocrity and take those who follow you, (and they will) to achieve your vision and purpose. The true stories will open your eyes to famous successes and failures and why they happened as they did. Strong leadership is neccessary within families, business, volunteer work, ministry and in our society in general, which lately seems to record much of weak leadership, often taking us down destructive pathes.
Read this book and be inspired to be all you were born to be!

OMG. I am not sure how people have given good reviews to this book. I have read so many books on business and leadership. This is first of John's book I bought (along with his other book "good leaders ask great questions") but planning not to buy any of his books again. His writing style is not engaging at all. Also, I feel he starts on giving an example or comparing one situation with other but fails to do it effectively. He may be a good trainer but as an author I am totally not impressed. I find the book extremely boring. I would not .... totally not recommend this book to anyone.

This book is very well written. John has also written several other books about leadership. If you love quotes, this book will delight you. Each chapter speaks to one of the laws of leadership. At the end of each chapter, John discusses how that particular law applies in your life. At the end of the book, there is a questionnaire you can fill out which will then help you determine which law you need to improve upon. VERY good book.

The clear truth about leadership broken down into 21 bite-sized components that are easy to read, understand, and put into practice. The book is written in a very engaging manner that draws you in and makes you want to keep on reading. It is very well adapted to training sessions, or reflections sessions. Applicable for anyone, anywhere in any organization. Buy it, read it, apply it, and you will never regret it!

This book is for anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills. It's easy to follow, and the concepts are easy to understand. The quiz at the back of the book points out areas of strength and weakness for you personally as a leader.

this book was thorough, very encouraging as well as precise steps to move forward in your leadership growth. Focused on far too many american "leaders" more of a world view of leaders would be better illustration.

One of the best books on leadership I've read. These 21 laws make sense and seem intuitive but will take years (if not decades) to master. This book will help you find your way to leadership

Very good primer on Leadership attitude and the work of John Maxwell. There is ALOT of material, but would you expect from the world's premier guru on the subject. Strongly recommend.

Just didn't like it. Others might. The way it was written is painful to read.
