I wish I could've read this at 20 years old.

Really great book!I think John Maxwell's greatest gift is adding depth and understanding to commonsense. He states what should be obvious, but he does so in such a way that your understanding is broadened and deepened many times over.

Are you a talent +person?

Great book. We all need to become talent + people. Talent along is not sufficient. There's a seed of greatness in every positive thing we do.
