Insightful and Engaging December 10, 2006
Reviewer: LeAnn Bradshaw from Laurel, Maryland, United States

Maxwell and Dornan give a wonderful look into breaking down the traditional roles of a leader and are able to present a step by step guide that anyone could read. Anyone who wants to improve their lives and the lives of others needs to put this on their "must read" list! Superb!

Rebuilding the Basketball Program December 12, 2006
Reviewer: Troy Noble from Chicago, Illinois, United States

I was a head college basketball coach who inherited a program that had been a losing program for years. After reading and implementing John Maxwell's book with my team our success grew and grew. In year #2, we went to the NJCAA National Tournament for the 1st time in school history. In year #3 we set school records for wins and team grade point average. I highly reccommend this book for all coaches, and athletes as well who wish to uplift the people around them and themselves in the process. It gave me a better understanding of how to motivate and allow others to self-govern and influence their peers. Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.
