Impact is the best leadership book I’ve read in many years. This book has a profound depth to it, but is surprisingly easy to read. The personal stories Irwin tells are fantastic. I recommend it for leaders but really anyone who has influence over others. Craig Gaskins

Tim Irwin's book, "Impact," is one of the most profound leadership books you will ever read. It cuts to the core of what makes great leaders - a high level of self-awareness and the ability to develop and guard one's "core." There is something very real about this book - you will find yourself laughing one minute and deep in reflection the next. "Impact" will change the way you think about your leadership and your life from every angle. It is thought-provoking, insightful, and full of wisdom. Every now and then, a truly exceptional leadership book comes out that changes the paradigm of what makes leaders great - "Impact" is one of them.
