Good book with focused audience
I have read many of John's books and this one is definitely good from a character building standpoint. Even though the material within can be used in a variety of careers, it's angled with emphasis towards those who work in ministry, such as pastors or other church leadership. Just keep that in mind. I was reading this book to grow in my corporate America leadership and found out early it was heavy on ministry. As I stated, the principles still work and I took a lot of notes specifically for ways to build character. If you need to learn how to deal with all kinds of people better, this is a good read.
I have had the pleasure of reading nearly all of John's books and jumped at the opportunity to add this to the collection. What is always refreshing is the consistency of the principles, with insight regarding application for the culture. I have recommended John's books to many many many people, and have given several as gifts, many to my sons. Thanks John.
This book has a ton of great teachings to help you grow in your everyday life.
