    SEVENTEEN? God himself had only ten.

    It is said that when Woodrow Wilson attended the Versailles conference and began waving around his Fourteen Points, Clemenceau of France turned to Lloyd George of Britain and remarked "God himself had only ten." The author would have done well to learn from this prior to writing and naming this book.

    An inspirational manual on becoming a valuable team member.

    This brief, inspirational book uses a now-classic formula for texts on selling and leadership, although its focus on cooperation and following the leader is unusual. Each chapter starts with a short anecdote about a historic figure¿s accomplishments, and his or her triumph over adversity. The vignettes demonstrate the lessons that author John C. Maxwell then briefly discusses in the rest of the chapter. The ¿laws¿ the author promulgates benefit from the stories¿ afterglow and are less important than the stories themselves. Memorable quotations and sidebars that support the author¿s main points round off each lesson. Maxwell is an expert at wielding this formula, perhaps because he helped make it a classic, and a star in the inspirational self-help genre. We recommend his book as a pick-me-up for team members and aspiring leaders.
