Publisher's Summary

If you've never read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, you've been missing out on one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. If you have read the original version, then you'll love this new expanded and updated one.
Internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, and author John C. Maxwell has taken this million-seller and made it even better:


Every Law of Leadership has been sharpened and updated
Seventeen new leadership stories are included
Two new Laws of Leadership are introduced
New evaluation tool will reveal your leadership strengths - and weaknesses
New application exercises in every chapter will help you grow
Why would Dr. Maxwell make changes to his best-selling book?
"A book is a conversation between the author and reader," says Maxwell. "It's been 10 years since I wrote The 21 Laws of Leadership. I've grown a lot since then. I've taught these laws in dozens of countries around the world. This new edition gives me the opportunity to share what I've learned."

Good Use of an Audible Credit

This is a great listen for someone who is interested in learning more about leadership. I put off buying this book because it was "only" around three hours long and I always want to get the most for my credits, but I really appreciated Maxwell being succinct. If you can communicate an idea clearly in a minute, do me a favor and don't take ten, amiright?

One nice thing about this book being short is that it basically hits the high points and there aren't any slow spots. I've listed through it twice and have found each listen to be beneficial.

Definitely worth a credit if you are interested in expanding your knowledge base on leadership.

Comprehensive and practical guide with great examples

This book takes a comprehensive view of leadership principles which seems overwhelming and illustrates through real life examples, some from the author and many from other examples in recent history, their importance. The author provides the audio for this book so you can here his emphasis through the tone in his voice when he urges the reader to take action and the consequences of doing so or not doing so in some cases. The chapters are not long so they are easy to complete at one sitting of 15 min per chapter or so. If you want to become an effective leader, listen and then act.
