I'll explain; If you are remodeling your home (in this case our mind) and you go out to your local hardware store to pick up a book on remodeling. What kind of book would you think the average person in your situation would buy? The answer is a "How to" book. You want a book the teaches you exactly how to take apart your bathroom or kitchen and how to put it in your new pieces. You don't buy a book that tells you that you should remodel (you already know that, thats why your buying the book).
This book tells you to "think" then tells you why thinking is important from begining to end but only scratches the general surface on the "how." We obviously already know we should think and by investing in this literature clearly we acknowledge the value (duh).
There needs to be more practices, exercises, and real applicable examples of approaches for thr reader in common everyday scenarios.
Throughout the book there is also plenty of good quotes but these just become meaningless without a proper dissection and then again proposed real life application. This lack of explanation makes the reader feel as if he/she is reading a college term paper for a 6 week class.
In the end the book was not bad and it was filled with plenty of good "quotes" and general concepts but it never delivered what the title promises. Its best suited as a introduction to a real book on "How."
Thank you and good luck.
- Put your family ahead of your own desires. Put the development of people at the workplace ahead of your own advancement.
- To distinguish yourself, get noticed, and advance your career, you need to do and be more. You have to rise above average. You can do this by asking more of yourself than others ask, expecting more from yourself than others expect, believing more in yourself than others believe, doing more than others think you should have to do, giving more than others think you should give, and helping more than others think you should help
Thanks John for being dedicated to GROW YOURSELF.
John writes his materials using his abundant years of experience as a business leader and equally important from a Christian point of view, as he is not only a solid business leader, but is also a Pastor and fellow Christian. He sends the message of and practices what he "preaches" because he is a serving leader and not a self serving one.
He practices and stresses being a mirrored image of the type of person your followers can look up to and he constantly is helping develop other leaders and team members to allow them to constantly grow and improve.
John is one who shares his wealth of knowledge and is a very inspiring person both as a business leader and as a Christian, father and all around friend.
I hope my review of his book helps answer any questions about his material and please feel free to ask about any of his books, as I have all of his literature. I'm a very solid fan and believe in his works as being reliable sources of material for any business leader or person wishing to improve themselves or their team.
I like the format of the book and how I can pick it up if I have a little time, read a short chapter and get something to think about.
