The beauty of listening to or reading Mr. Stanley's works is twofold: the clarity is never lacking, and he communicates some other principles in his illustrations that feels like getting a getting a bonus learning principle. Somewhere along the way of learning about the 5 essentials to make me a better leader, I also learned some other life principles that would work in all areas of my life, if I am willing to apply them.
I will also add that I enjoyed the audio format. Though I usully read and make notes in the margain when undertaking books like this. Having it in audio allowed for easy repeated listenings, and I could listen on the way the work, which has been of great benefit for application. Turn off CD, get out of car and apply immediately.
It pushed me in the right direction and it has given me some tools to use in my life as a worshipper, husband and doing ministry.
This is the second book I read by Andy Stanley and I have just started the third. I am so satisfied about his books, and it is surely books that are good for young leaders because he speaks our language, we can identify with him and the things he write about.
Great book that has to be read over and over again
Would like to give this book my highest recommendations
So happy that I could enjoy this great book
That said, there's nothing in here that I would call revolutionary or that completely surprised, as there was in, for example, Bill Hybel's "Axiom." This book is a very useful, solid read, but if you've been leading for any amount of time, this will probably come as a support, a reminder about some first principles, and an encouragement. I doubt that you'll be scratching your head thinking, "I never would have thought of that!" Still, the value is the many cases where you will think, "I had intuited that, but this is great to see it laid out clearly and succinctly."
This book belongs on any leader's shelf, and it won't collect dust. From here, move to Hybels, Maxwell, and the other works on leadership, and you'll be pleased.
