    " John Maxwell is one of my favorite non-ficton authors. He has inspired and helped me become a better me! Just finished it and will review it again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel Ballew | 2/19/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Serger | 2/6/2014

    " This book is one that communicates about how to talk, share and most important influence others..it does not need to be at work or at home--this can be in the airport, hotel lobby, or anywhere one can be seen talking with others, interacting with others, or assembled with others. It is like, big brother is watching only big brother is others--365 days a year we can help others--great book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stefan | 1/28/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robb | 1/22/2014

    " Pretty good book, but so practical that it's a little boring. Some stories are interesting, but a lot of it is common sense. I listened to it on Audiobook with both of the authors reading it, and one them has a boring voice. I'm sure I picked up some tips that are helpful in the way I relate to other people, but as I write this I can't really think of something specific that I learned. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Canas | 1/12/2014

    " John C. Maxwell doing his usual song and dance essentially, nothing particularly special about this one if you've already read some of his other books. I would recommend "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership" instead. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney | 1/11/2014

    " This book is really amazing because it shows that everyone has influence of some sort, we just don't realize it at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rusty | 1/2/2014

    " This book is a must read because we all have influence on someone else. The question is is it going to be for the positive or the negative. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone. Most of us have no idea how much influence we have and how important it is to manage it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 10/5/2013

    " One of the best John Maxwell books. Unlike some of his others, this book has a manageable number of points (10), and is a quick read. This makes a really good reference book for anyone looking to improve their lives. This is especially helpful for people looking for a job promotion or advancement. "

    " His points of view fit right into the way I see relationships with others. This was the first book I read that filled in the holes that I didn't understand in human relationships. I loved the book and keep it like a social bible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phil | 10/23/2008

    " Maxwell does a nice job but it seems to simple to me. It is more like a good religious read rather than great content on how it will apply to the leadership world.
    I recommend it but don't expect it to cause you to think much. Just a lite read. Decaf coffee not good Cuban Expresso. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 10/7/2008

    " I've listened to the audio version 4 or 5 times. Anything by John Maxwell is well worth the read. "
