"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Few of us are natural-born leaders, according to John C. Maxwell, author of Developing the Leader Within You. Fortunately though, "the traits that are the raw material of leadership can be acquired," he promises. "Link them up with desire and nothing can keep you from becoming a leader. This book will supply the leadership principles. You must supply the desire." True to his words, Maxwell offers a detailed and inspiring primer on becoming a leader. Even the Table of Contents reads like a motivational poster.
Maxwell (The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader), who is the founder of INJOY, a Christian-based leadership program, debunks the myth that strong leaders must have big egos and spend all their time harnessing personal power. Instead, he elevates leadership to a spiritual act of service: "The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership." Maxwell relies on real-life anecdotes, short paragraphs, charts, and numerous lists to make his wisdom accessible. As a result, his writing often seems simplistic, with a self-help tone. Nonetheless, in teaching readers how to bring out the best in themselves as well as others, Maxwell offers a worthwhile life lesson that extends far beyond the workplace. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

To the point, direct, with questions that probe, inspire introspection, and cause personal identification of strengths, weaknesses, and character. I found myself highlighting good material throughout.
The style is inviting, while deceptively hard-hitting. Not necessarily a page turner in the beginning, but it picked up a solid head of steam towards the end.
The book feels open-ended, and expectedly so, considering the breadth of literature penned by the author.
There is more than a smattering of other’s work/quotes; were it not for the established integrity and success of Maxwell, I’d be more inclined to think of their inclusion as filler vs applied life lessons or manuscripts of personal fondness.
A great resource for individuals and organizations to adopt greater leadership principles in a systemic way.
I look forward to bringing this to my focus/men’s bible study group, and seeing the response it generates.
A solid four stars.
