Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

His previous 21 laws of leadership were "irrefutable"; his 17 law of teamwork were "indisputable"; and the 15 laws of growth in his new book are "invaluable." But however you describe them, John C. Maxwell's principles for business success win adherents and spark sales.

Stedman Graham
"I salute John Maxwell for being a pioneer for leadership throughout the world. In his most recent book, he has successfully distilled the 15 most invaluable laws for personal growth. To read this book is to receive the essence of John's expertise, which will help you take your personal success to the next level."
John Calipari
"As a coach and leader, I am always looking for way to teach my players how to grow. Thanks to my good friend John Maxwell, you hold in your hands the instruction manual for taking next steps of growth. Embracing these laws will cause you to grow individually and in your contribution to those around you. This book is a must-read for anyone responsible for helping others to grow."
Elizabeth Dole
"Millions of individuals--myself included--have been inspired by the words and works of John Maxwell. Now, in The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, John again shares his remarkable insights and wisdom into how each of us can reach our full potential and make a positive difference in the lives of others."
Publishers Weekly
02/18/2013
Surprisingly, Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) views tension as a positive force in one's life, the difference between those who settle for the status quo and those who experience growth and thrive. Growth, Maxwell asserts, is key to achieving success, and here, he provides a realistic roadmap for getting there. In addition to professional development, his wisdom extends into the personal realm, including discussions regarding improving relationships and obtaining wisdom. His laws range from the most basic (having self-awareness) to the more challenging (being consistent in how you pursue goals). By exploring curiosity and how to cultivate it, from believing and adopting a "beginner's mindset" to his suggestion to "partake in the fruit of failure" and "getting over yourself," Maxwell offers invaluable advice. Each chapter closes with helpful tips on how to incorporate these ideas into your life. Maxwell's advice is relevant to even the most successful among us, and his fans will likely delight in this inspiring new book. (Oct.)
Joel Osteen
"My good friend John Maxwell has been a great source of inspiration and encouragement in my life and has motivated millions of people around the world to achieve new heights in their lives as well. In his new book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, John does what he does best; inspiring people to find and unlock their true potential and fulfill their God-given purpose. Regardless of where you are in your life, the principles outlined in this book can help you to forge better relationships, grow spiritually and become all that you were created to be."
