John C.

Find out why Henry Ford nearly sent his own company into bankruptcy; why Princess Diana was loved by millions while her husband couldn't persuade people to give him the time of day; why Coca-Cola's stock held strong even when its CEO suddenly died; and why some entrepreneurs receive plenty of money from venture capitalists while others can't get a dime.

21 Laws of Leadership?

This is a good general outline, but when it comes down to it there is not enough information to be helpful. The author spends the whole book talking about too many different people to go into any great detail as to why they were good leaders. He just touches the surface in most cases

An excellent check list

I found all these laws concise and logical and worthy of frequent review. However I agree with another reviewer in that it is not a "how to" audio recording. For example, if you don't have a leader you can learn from, or if you have a lid on your vision, Maxwell will not tell you how to compensate and what the cost of not having these laws will be. As a leader or somebody planning to be a leader, you must decide where to put your energy, and this recording will not help you there. Although some people do not like the fact that much of his experience comes from leadership in a church, I don't mind. The only possible shortcoming I see is that in that setting one will find fewer toxic characters. However, with his many examples, I believe you will be convinced he has done a fair amount of research, and that these laws are indeed ‘irrefutable’. Before I take my next job, I’ll listen to this to remind me what to look for. Complimentary reading to this is something like Jason Jenning’s “Think Big, Act Small”, where you will see some of these laws confirmed to exist in the best companies.
