Intentional Living by John Maxwell (A REVIEW)

Intentional LivingI’ve not always been a John Maxwell fan, but his more recent books are really good. This book, Intentional Living, is by far one of his best. Maxwell is older than I am and typically is read better in my parents generation. With this book though, his focus has changed and he comes across as more approachable. He shares stories and details of his life creating a brilliant synthesis of autobiography and life principles.

Maxwell also offers a seven day online video encouragement course (for Free) that pairs quite nicely with this book. He shares a brief (usually 5 min or less) message and then issues a challenge (that usually takes less than 10 minutes to complete). It’s a great course that complements and extends the value of the book. To be sure though it also leads into a 30 day course that costs to participate. Nothing wrong with the cost of the 30 day course, my guess is that you are more likely to complete it if you paid something for it.

Over all I thought that, Intentional Living, was a great read and well worth the time it takes to read it. If you had to pick one John Maxwell book to read, I’d say pick this one. In the mean time check out some of my other reviews of John Maxwell’s books.

“Beyond Tallent” by John Mawell (A Review)

Beyond Talent: Become Someone Who Gets Extraordinary Results by John Maxwell is a great book about maximizing potential.  Of all the Maxwell books I’ve read, I like this one the best.  The book is full of wisdom and insights that are intended to challenge the reader to maximize their potential.

I found this book to be very readable, practical and to the point.  I really appreciated the candor and self-disclosure of the author making the hard points palatable. This book has deffinately earned a spot in the leadership section of my library.

Over all its a great read and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in maximizing their potential.  This book is especially good for young leaders and professionals. I wish I had read this book at 18. The retail price of Beyond Talent is $16.99 (Paperback), and is available around the web in places like Amazon.com for $11.55.  I gave it five stars.
