Is the book simple? You bet. Is it difficult to apply. Of course. But, the framework of the 15 Laws is one model that will help you be more successful in every area of your life. Truly, we cannot lead anyone further than we've led ourselves and this book will give you the tools to lead yourself to your next level.
Enjoy the 15 Laws:
1. Law of Intentionality - Growth doesn't just happen.
2. Law of Awareness - You must know yourself to grow yourself.
3. Law of the Mirror - You must see value in yourself to add value to yourself.
4. Law of Reflection. Learning to pause allows growth to catch up with you.
5. Law of Consistency. Motivation gets you going. Discipline keeps you growing.
6. Law of Environment: Growth thrives in conducive surroundings.
7. Law of Design: To maximize growth develop strategies.
8. Law of Pain. Good management of bad experiences leads to great growth.
9. Law of ladder. Character growth determines the height of your personal growth.
10. Law of the rubber band. Growth stops when you lose the tension of where you are and where you could be.
11. Law of tradeoffs. You have to give up to go up.
12. Law of Curiosity. Growth is stimulated is asking why.
13. Law of Modeling. It's hard to improve when you have no one but yourself to follow.
14. Law of expansion. Growth always increases your capacity.
15. Law of Contribution. Growing yourself enables you to grow others.
Dr. Maxwell shares profound insights and truths using every day simple tools like the Law of the rubber band. If you want to grow, you must stretch.
The Law of contribution. If you want to contribute, you must first develop yourself, so that you can develop others.
A insightful read if you want to intentionally grow, contribute, and give back.

It may also be because I found the multiple quotes per page a major distraction to what Dr. Maxwell had to say. His words were overwhelmed by the quotes.
I also found the quotes to add little value to what Dr. Maxwell had to say. I kept thinking that of the quotes were removed, just how much smaller and maybe more potent the book would be.
While I have no issue with any of Dr. Maxwell's 15 laws of growth, I feel the value of the book was lost by an over reliance on the quotes of others.
Put just a few of these principles into your daily routine and you will automatically see growth.
The narrator is your typical voice nothing interesting very basic, meaning there wasn't an accent or much character in the voice.
