Whether you like him or not, there's no denying that John Maxwell has a handle on leadership principles. This book boils down more than 30 years of Maxwell's life of learned and applied leadership to 21 laws. If you could condense 30 years of a man's life into one book of basic principles that you could learn and apply to your own life, what would it be worth to you?
Although they all combine to form the foundation for leadership, each of the 21 laws stands alone. As you read through each law, take a personal inventory to determine which areas are working for you and which need to be improved.
This book is not particularly good at showing how to apply each law to your own situation, but it does give excellent real-life examples of what happens when these laws are (and aren't) applied. Maxwell likes blowing his own horn to illustrate the laws in some cases, but he also uses many other "big name" examples from the world of business, politics, the military, sports and the church.
Each chapter will enable you to understand a key facet of your leadership ability, assess it for yourself, and begin the next step of filling in the gaps that have held you back from being the leader you could be.
Larry Hehn, author of Get the Prize: Nine Keys for a Life of Victory
I picked up this book based on the amazon customer reviews which, for the most part, are spot on. However, on this occassion, I felt very let down.
As with many leadership books, authors sometimes use their personal experiences as examples for the reader to learn from but the number of times Maxwell refers to himself makes this more of an autobiography than a book on the "Laws of Leadership". By the end of Law 2 I felt like throwing it in the trash.
To my mind, leadership laws are timeless principles whose examples should be taken from great leaders of the past and not the cliche-ridden, self-centred motivational speakers of the present.
