Format: Paperback
I've read dozens of inspirational and self-help books, and still think that "Be All You Can Be" is a must for all who want to make their life worthwhile. John C. Maxwell is not trying to impress the reader with strange and unheard ideas. He is far from adverting any of controversial methods of "self-realization". In this book you will find sound approach to success, combined with down-to-earth common sense and a heathy dose of humor. The author does not believe that there are shortcuts to releasing of our potential, so those folks who are looking for quick-fixes could be disappointed. However, if you are serious and willing to work, this book will prove to be an outstanding tool of your personal transformation.

Books like this one never grow out of date. In the opening section we're told of the timeless value of principles when Dr. Maxwell writes, "...there are principles of success and there are principles of failure." Obviously if you want to learn the principles of success you learn from someone who has mastered them such as John Maxwell.
He moves from this introduction to the matter of abiding in Jesus. He talks about the Scripture of glorifying the Father by producing fruit. Fruit is produced as we abide in Jesus. We're admonished, "Feed your mind on things that will help you think right and then reproduce."
The section on dreams is quite thrilling. Dr. Maxwell helps us grasp how real, how vital, how life-giving dreams are. Goals coupled with passion lead to success. In writing about prayer he tells us, "We need to look at prayer as taking hold of God's eagerness, not overcoming God's reluctance." This book will fuel the passion of anyone wanted to live a life of significance in the light of God's standard. It is food for thought for the person consumed with being excellent.

I found this book encouraging and caused to me to look at how I spend my time, to make goals and then start steps to complete these goals. Also to spend more time with the Lord in prayer and reading His Word to be aware of what God's plan is for my life.

This book is full of great wisdom and advice. It is especially helpful for those in leadership positions or those who desire to be in leadership positions. I especially enjoyed the lessons of leadership drawn from shepherd parables - know them, grow them, and show them. However, the author would sometimes full the chapter with too much information. He will have a chapter that explains four concepts, and have six or seven explanations of each concept, with some of those c concepts having for our five concepts of its own. Other times, a paragraph would be filled with sentences that don't make sense and do not even seen to relate to search other. Still, I believe the book is worth reading, and you can take a lot back from it.

There are few books that I would recommend to reread every year. This is one of those books! In addition, the audiobook is very well done. My only regret about the audio is that it was impossible to highlight and listen at the same time. Perhaps that is a good thing, I would have to highlight most of the book. It is that good. Get it. Read it.
