"The first time I met John Maxwell, I could tell that he and I shared the same values. He cares about people and he wants to help them. One of the best ways to do that is to teach people how to overcome failure and adversity. That ability turned my life around. If you read Sometimes You Win--Sometimes You Learn, you will learn that valuable skill.

There are two primary reasons I didn't give it a higher rating
1. I found a lot of the material to be the same or rehashed from other Maxwell books.
2. In my opinion, the book is too story driven, which made it overly long and sometimes boring. (Some of the stories were really funny though like the one were maxwell got arrested for having a gun at the airport CLASSIC)
But there's a lot of hard work to be along the way, so start learning how to profit from the lessons in Maxwell's book. It isn't the end all, but it is a great beginning!
In less than a week's time, I have produced a remarkable change in attitude and profit from unfortunate events and circumstances.

I recommend this book to anyone in a leadership roll, especially one where those being led must also become leaders for the leader's goal to be realized. Your potential leaders should read it in its entirety too!
I gave 5 stars because I gained so much. I'll be tweeting the chapter titles and and a few quotes from book using hashtag #maturity since that is where all of our losing "with" learning ultimately leads!
