Wow what a book.Ever wondered why some people can take groups to incredible heights and other seemingly as capable individuals can,t? Ever thought howcome a team performs completely differently when a new leader is installed? Most leadership books I have previously read dealt really with management. Maxwell has an absolute understanding of the qualities a leader must display. In the 21 Laws.... Maxwell breaks down leadership into 21 chapters each dealing with a specfic 'Law of Leadership'. With insights into how famous leaders performed and with ideas on how to develop yourself as a leader. This book is a must for all budding and fully bloomed leaders alike. Anyone who can take a church congregation from hundreds to over 30,000, who can be instrumental in the success of companies such as Chick Fila must understand true leadership! John Maxwell understands leadership. If you want to understand leadership, if you want to be regarded as a leader, this book is a must.

This is one of the most important books written in the last century. I say this because it demonstrates and explains what real leadership is: influence! Maxwell makes this abundantly clear and there is a contrast between self serving leaders vs those who live to benefit others! In fact the chapters of 'the law of addition ' and 'the law of empowerment ' are priceless. I see too many 'leaders' who will do anything to reach the top including treat people like dogs in the process. Maxwell clearly shows how this in no way constitutes true leadership, which adds to people's lives, rather than taking away from them. The book starts by explaining the importance of good leadership 'the law of the lid', followed by the much needed chapter on ' the law of process ' which sets the record straight - leadership develops over time, and not in the blink of an eye. Some people might be put off by the abundance of anecdotal evidence, but I would counter with the fact that Maxwell must be doing something right considering his vast influence over government figures and ceos etc. I have found so many benefits in my personal life such as increased self discipline etc after reading this book, and a new resolve to benefit those around me. 5 stars

Socrates advised, "Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for."
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.

Love this book, heard it was very good. There's a lot of amazing people in the world and its funny because we don't think about, who is the CEO of Costco or who made McDonalds a franchise. Very good read especially entrepreneurs like myself.

This book has opened my eyes to the possibilities of leadership. I wanted to improve my leadership skills and there are lots of books out there on this topic. In my view Dr. John Maxwell’s books are still considered the best.

You will either love this or hate it!

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.

Frequent motivational author John C. Maxwell, a former pastor, squarely based these 21 laws of leadership on enduring values. These guidelines are meant to inspire, not innovate, as they offer techniques to make leading by principle a practical reality. Maxwell's straightforward, insightful rules are well worth the time you will spend reading them. We recommend this gem of simplicity as a game book for building stronger teams and becoming a better leader.
