Format: Hardcover
Leadership expert John Maxwell is extremely good at expressing complex truths in series of simple sentences that individually seem obvious. As the pages go by, one realizes one is being exposed to a well-thought out comprehensive world view as to how people should lead other people in a manner than benefits society as a whole.

Relationships are important to success, the author writes, because relationships are the glue that holds team members together.

What a leader needs to know about others, the author writes, is that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Leaders can encourage others, the author says, by believing in people before they have proved themselves. This is the key to motivating people to reach their potential.

Leaders can connect with people, the author says, by always remembering that the heart comes before the head.

Leaders can become better listeners, the author says, by treating every person as if he or she were the most important person in the world.

Leaders can build trust with others, the author says, by having their words and actions match.

The most important relationships, the author says, are at home. Succeed at home, and all other relationships become easier.

A leader can serve and lead people at the same time by loving the people he or she leads more than his or her position, the author says.

As the author always does in the many books he writes, he backs up his views with famous historical quotes and anecdotes..

First impression:
"I thought you'd be bigger."
Seriously, this book is just 89 pages. It's not terribly small print and it looks like it is 1.5 line-spaced, so it's not very dense text either. Paragraph and/or topic breaks create blank lines taking up even more page space. Basically if you are a decently quick reader and set out to actually read this book in one sitting, it is likely to happen in an hour or two.

What I think I have learned:
Ronald Regan liked people, Jimmy Carter not so much. To build good relationships you need to make other people think that they are your friend. Maybe even your best friend. You need to love yourself. You need to care about other people. Instead of trying to forward your own agenda, it is better to help other people... then they will help you.

Building a solid relationship takes respect, because if you don't respect someone they can tell, shared experiences because if you share this you can build a bond. Trust because you don't want to connect with people you don't trust. A two way street, relationships built with all the help, love, respect and/or trust coming from only one person in the relationship will fail.

Building good relationships is hard. People have fear. People are self-centered. People fail to appreciate differences or acknowledge similarities.

The heart comes first. You need to think about what people love and help them achieve that, this will help build a bond and they will then want to help you.

To build good relationships you need to stop talking.

This is a great book. Especially if you like John Maxwell books. This is a compilation of several chapters from some of Maxwell's other bestsellers, and it serves as a great refresher on key leadership principles. The chapters on integrity, and family are worth the price of the book. It is a great, and easy read.

I found myself taking key notes while reading the book. I got it from the library and wasn't willing to return when the due date came upon me. I then thought I might as well buy it and always keep with me for reference. We sometimes just tend to forget what's really important and this would be a great reference to go through from time to time and esp. when we are having any possible issues with someone in our life. Or just when we feel the urge to become a better person and refresh our knowledge. I got some great insights from this book - things I hadn't thought of. It was inspirational and motivated me to immediately apply it. I will definitely recommend this. I now also want to try his other 101 series. I already have another compact book of his on success (it's blue in color and has a key on the cover) and I simply loved it. The compact format was another plus point. The reason for 4 and not 5 stars was at some points, I was left wanting to know more. but I realize this was meant to be a short course. Thank you John. This really helped me realize many truths and showed me where I could improve.

Great book. With John Maxwell you can not go wrong. I got this book along with the 5 Love Languages, Love & Respect and How to Win Friends and Influences People. Great companion book to How to Win Friends and Influence People. The author style of writing comes across as if you where sitting in front of your father while he gave you advice. I would recommend this book for any relationships that you may have or are looking to improve upon.
