Format: Hardcover
Maxwell’s The Complete 101 Collection focuses on proper leadership principles, including how our attitudes, relationships, and thoughts influence the way in which we lead others.

"Success is...
Knowing your purpose in life,
Growing to reach your maximum potential, and
Sowing seeds that benefit others."
― John C. Maxwell, The Complete 101 Collection: What Every Leader Needs to Know

Filled with inspiring quotes, leadership wisdom, and personal stories, Maxwell has created a resource which is helpful, and insightful. Targeted at individuals in leadership positions or business, this large volume includes all of Maxwell's '101' books, such as:

Attitude 101
Self-Improvement 101
Leadership 101
Relationships 101
Success 101
Teamwork 101
Equipping 101
Mentoring 101

At over 600 pages, this hardcover book is formatted in such a reader-friendly way. The sections of the book are portioned off with numbers + bullet points, and includes motivational quotes in each chapter. Though this book is most definitely geared towards leaders, I feel the truth and wisdom in this book is beneficial for all people throughout life (hey, I love it!). I really believe this helpful resource ought to be on every bookshelf (you should check it out!) - especially the bookshelves of ministry leaders & business people.

Good book for new leaders June 20 2014
By Glenn Hendrickson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Amazing book on key leadership topics. It is perfect if you are (like me) toward the beginning of your development as a leader and want an overview that does not dig too deep on any subject. Maxwell has written other books if you are after depth.

He is a clear author, and uses memorable stories, examples, and quotations to make things memorable.

It was great to have so many books together at my fingertips. I have already read one book several times and use the information often. I want to use the information relating to TEams soon!! Right now working on the book about attitudes. So much useful information!
John C. Maxwell Takes the Reader to School. Aug. 22 2015
By Mr. Geurs - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Leadership. If football coach Lou Holtz wrote the playbook for how to develop an impeccable college team, then John C. Maxwell should be credited with writing the play book for how to develop impeccable leadership potential into straight up leadership awesome. Over the past twelve years, Maxwell published a series of books on different aspects of leadership (attitude, self-improvement, leadership, relationships, success, teamwork, equipping, and mentoring), each titled that trait with "101" after it. All eight of the titles have been collected in one cover, and the book is called The Complete 101 Collection.

I enjoy reading what Maxwell has to say. His works are some of the very few where I can say with honesty that the writing style almost makes up for the fact that he is not present speaking to you. The key points in his works are phrased in a way that the ideas can connect with any reader avid to the topic. This is exactly what you get regarding this book. When Maxwell discusses the importance for maintaining a positive attitude, his word choice conveys this necessity and you can detect the enthusiasm in his "voice." When he talks about how one achieves success, the reader feels like Maxwell has been there many times before. As he describes the necessity to mentor others, the reader feels as if he or she is being taken under Maxwell's wing, and realizes that is what Maxwell has been doing all along.

Having read most of the 101 series before, the big thing I appreciated about The Complete 101 Collection is that the book is organized not by chronological publication date, but by how well the subjects of the books logically flow into one another. If you already have most or all the "101" books, consider reading this anyway (and even buying it to have as a resource and then giving your individual 101 books to others) because the order the topics are arranged creates a new feel for each of the books separately.

The individual who is in a leadership position, may be in a leadership position later, or enjoys working alongside others should consider reading this book. Maxwell's insights are invaluable to any individual as he or she develops quality leadership traits.

The book was provided for free through the BookLook Bloggers program in exchange for it being reviewed. I was not obligated to publish a positive review; the opinions contained are mine.
John Maxwell's "The Complete 101 Collection" - Review Aug. 14 2015
By Bob Allen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This "book" contains 8 books from John Maxwell's "101 Series" — "Attitude 101", "Self-Improvement 101", "Leadership 101", "Relationships 101", "Success 101", "Teamwork 101", "Equipping 101", and "Mentoring 101". A ninth book, "Ethics 101", is not included in this collection. This is a great starter set for a young leader and for an experienced leader who wants content for conversations in a mentoring relationship.

Each of these books is intended as an introduction to its topic. Don't expect to learn everything you need to know as a leader, despite the subtitle, "What Every Leader Needs to Know". However, do expect to get a good introduction to the things that a good leader needs to know and do. There are numerous references to other books by Maxwell, each of which goes into greater depth on a given topic. In typical Maxwell fashion, these books have plenty of quotes from historical figures as well as some of the best current writers on leadership. There is some overlap between the subject matters of the books, so there are sections that are repeated in different ones of these books. For example, a significant minority portion of "Mentoring 101" is included in "Equipping 101". That's not bad because equipping leaders and mentoring leaders have similar characteristics.

I think one of the best uses of these books (or this collection) would be for an experienced leader to mentor a young leader. And, in fact, 5 of these books (Mentoring 101, Relationships 101, Equipping 101, Attitude 101, and Leadership 101) are available as a part of Maxwell's Lunch & Learn series which includes a discussion guide.

Some of the themes that run throughout all of these books are:
• Trust
• Loyalty
• Choosing people based on leadership potential, not followship
• Passing on responsibility.

While every one of these books is helpful, I thought the best sections were:
• Leadership 101, Chapter 9, "How Can I Extend My Influence"
• Teamwork 101, Chapter 2, "What is the Impact of Good Teamwork", especially the section "Great Teams Create Community".
• Equipping 101, Chapter 5, "What Does It Take to Equip a Leader", especially the section "Check on Them Systematically" when Maxwell talks about working with "a person whose progress is repeatedly poor."

DISCLAIMER: In addition to a copy of this collection that I purchased, I also received a complimentary copy from the publisher as a part of its bloggers' review programme, BookLook Bloggers <>. I am free to write the review that I think the book deserves. My only compensation, other than a free copy, is continued participation in the programme.
Reading the 101 Collection is time well spent July 17 2015
By Henk-Jan van der Klis - Published on
Format: Hardcover
John C. Maxwell and his team cherry-picked the essentials in subjects such as leadership, attitude, relationships, teamwork, and mentoring and put them in an easy to read format. The 101 series helped more than one million readers to become better leaders. Now, all 6 titles have been combined into The Complete 101 Collection. A solid 8-10 hours reading can't make a leader out of anyone.
Attitude 101 deals with the formation and impact of attitude. Failure, success and the differences between attitude and character. Admit wrongdoings and forgiveness are important. Having the right attitude to lead, serve and enable growth is core to leadership. Each of us is created uniquely and performs differently, and should be treated as such.
Self-improvement 101 continues building your own leadership traits, before Leadership 101 concentrates on the ones to lead. You can lead, learn how to. Relationships 101 deals with the importance of relationships in every leadership setting. Success 101 focuses on the different perspectives on success and the generic principles to gain success and learn from failures. Teamwork 101, Equipping 101, and Mentoring 101 continue to highlight team formation, equipping people as a leader, and various mentoring possibilities to help your team grow, leave a lasting effect on the team, celebrate successes and develop new leaders during the journey.
John C. Maxwell has a typical writing style. Quotations and examples from other lives make up more than 90 percent of the content. And while his own professional leadership positions are in Christian church settings, you may expect a portion of Christianity injected as well. Leading a organization of volunteers, like a church is more difficult than a regular organization. Maxwell applies the same leadership principles, measures churches' success in attendance or membership figures, plus the lasting effect of the leader. Business, politics, Christianity blended, obviously written from an American point of view. Reading The Complete 101 Collection also reveals a lot of redundancy in the books. Whole sections of stories, examples and principles are copied in titles, sometimes even more than once. Third, the books, and especially the examples and borrowed insights from others weren't updated in the current decennial. Short summary of leadership stayed the same: influence. Reading the 101 Collection is time well spent.
