your road map for success
this isn't usually the sort of book i select for myself, but i got given this copy by my pastor at christmas time, so i thought i'd give it a shot.
john maxwell is a fairly well-known christian author, but this book is mainstream in its approach. it has lots of sensible advice on how to set and pursue your goals etc. i think books like this are written for a particular personality type, and i think that sometimes authors of books like this don't fully acknowledge the fact that everyone in the world isn't like them. the solutions offered by maxwell didn't really capture my imagination - i'd rather read something by john eldridge.
the up-shot of reading it is that i don't think i took anything in particular from the book, but i was left with a sense of wanting to break out of the mold a little bit more and see where it leads - so from that perspective it was worth reading.
i think this is probably a pretty good book in its genre.
