Listener Opinions

    " The subtitle is: How Anyone, Anywhere, Can Make a Positive Difference. This is such a fine little book; clocks in at 100 pages. Everyone should read it. It gets kudos from such heavy hitters as Ken Blanchard, Lois Frankel, and Marcus Buckingham. I like this comment by Jeffrey Fox (author of Secrets of a Great Rainmaker): "Read this book if you want to lead a better life, lead an organization, or lead the way." I especially recommend it to anyone seeking a meaningful gift for a recent graduate. Here is a quote from the book: "Each of our lives is a leadership lab. We don't need a title, or an organization, to lead. What we need is nothing more nor less that a burning desire to make a positive difference and an awareness of the opportunities to lead that present themselves each day---at work, at home, with our friends and relatives, within our communities. If each of us chose to lead at the right time in the right way, what might our companies be like? Our communities? Our world?" "

    " Quick read that I actually enjoyed. Most books of this genre I find redundant deserving an article and not an entire book. It was short and to the point. A good reminder that being a leader is an important skill that can be fine tuned in the most "mundane" of tasks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 2/6/2014

    " This book is good for inspiration but there is not really anything new or revolutionary in the information. Lots of quotes if you are into that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hergalee | 1/23/2014

    " Great book! I would recommend this book to anyone that is working on becoming a better leader. I liked the way Mark relates the stories/examples to the workplace and life in general. I've learned many things that I will incorporate in my life in order to help make a difference. I was waken by few things but one thing that stands out is "without focus, it is impossible to move forward to achieve your goals". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toby | 1/13/2014

    " this will be another one i read over and over again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 1/10/2014

    " This quick read is excellent. He shows how to make the subtitle really work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robb | 12/12/2013

    " A story of how people exemplify leadership in their daily lives, and yes you don't need a title to be a leader. I like how the author gives plenty of examples through stories to bring home the message and has leader takeaways at the end of each section as well. Quick easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn | 12/2/2013

    " I really liked this one. I like to keep up on leadership topics for my nursing leadership class I teach. I gained a bit more valuable insight that I hopefully will instill in the future nurses that I am teaching currently. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 11/29/2013

    " Cue book about leadership. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 11/16/2013

    " The books provides insights on being a leader regardless of your position. A fairly easy read, the book provides good ideas and suggestions. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scott Freeman | 10/8/2013

    " You may not need the title but it sure as heck doesn't hurt. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 10/6/2013

    " Not horrible, but there are a lot of much better books out there. Fortunately it was a quick read. Had it been much longer I would have given up on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyddie | 4/14/2013

    " At first, I thought the author's message was vague and generic, but I got more into it in the second half. There aren't many specific actions or ideas I'll take from it, but it's the kind of book I'd be willing to reread every once in a while to see which ideas resonate at that moment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 3/15/2013

    " The title says it all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 3/7/2013

    " I liked The Fred Factor better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Iliff | 2/18/2013

    " The leadership book for people who do not know they are leaders. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri | 12/30/2012

    " Some good ideas, but in general, I felt that was not much to be excited about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Caves | 12/21/2012

    " Simple leadership concepts. I like the way Seth Godin articulates these concepts in his book Tribes. "

    " Easy read and so much wisdom in this little book... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 7/20/2012

    " haha, I have to read this book for my class this summer. Parts of it are good and somewhat inspiring...other parts are just plain lame. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steelman | 7/6/2012

    " Good, solid advice to motivate any individual to better leadership in their work or personal environment. Easy to read and understand. It's not rocket science - discern what needs to be done and go do it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephen | 1/8/2012

    " the author got some issues with me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 12/20/2011

    " There's nothing groundbreaking here, but Sanborn manages to write about tried and true leadership qualities in an inspiring way. It's just a good reminder that it is in everyone's power to make positive choices, as hard as it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 P | 12/20/2011

    " Really great book. Practical advice for those who want to lead, who realize that leadership is everyday, and for those who just would like to garner some great insights into leadership in life generally. Also great just for some super life lessons. Highly recommend! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryann | 8/29/2011

    " Great book! Very practical suggestions about how to "take charge" in the office even if you don't hold a position of authority. Fantastic examples. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Carretto | 6/30/2011

    " This book is just full of Truths. It is a book about truly being a leader in what you do everyday. If you have read his other book, Fred Factor, then you will love this book. One of my favorite for the year! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Terri | 5/30/2011

    " I'm shocked how many positive reviews there are of this book. I wasn't expecting much...another generic leadership book written by another white male "motivational" speaker sales-type guy. Unfortunately this was worse than my low expectations even. Forgettable. "
