"Untapped Potential" is unparalleled in the field of personal development and professional motivation because it contends for a theistic, rather than a humanistic, basis for self-worth. "This is a book of motivation that is based on the personal nature of God," says Jack Lannom. "Humanism teaches that we must work for self-worth, in order to become somebody. Theism teaches that we work from a secure platform of human worth because we are somebody."

Reviews - What do customers think about Untapped Potential: Turning Ordinary People into Extraordinary Performers?
MUST READ! Jan 4, 2006
This book is a bluprint for success for either an individual or a company. The author addresses all spheres of human development - mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and relational. Most other motivational books emphasize one sphere of human development to the exclusion of others - not so in this book. The author clearly explains these concepts in a way that is easily understandable - he "puts the cookies on the bottom shelf," yet without sacrificing the necessary depth to sufficiently treat the topic. It is obvious that the author has distilled his years of study and experience into this handy volume for the busy reader. Another thing that makes this book so valuable is that the author provides checklists that aid the reader to immediately put the information to practical use. I have used these principles in my personal life and law practice with great success. Any person who is serious about understanding the foundation for doing their best in their personal or professional life and motivating others to do so must read this book!
Avoid! Jan 27, 2004
What could have been a decent book is ruined by the author's blatant and offensive attempts to convert the reader to Christianity in the last two chapters. The validity of other faiths is rejected and Lannom advises that "as per the Bible", Christ is the only way to God. Far from being an enlightening introduction to his faith, it seems he is no better than many muslims in that he seriously believes the absurd notion that the billions of non-Christians in this world will not be making it to heaven. Give me a break, you must be joking!
Unique approach to personal and professional development Sep 11, 1999
The descriptions of the three types of companies at the beginning of the book is excellent. Jack refers to "profit-driven," "customer-driven," and "meaning-driven" organizations. He then proceeds to give detailed and practical instructions on developing a "meaning-driven" company.
His foundation is self-esteem. Rather than seeing it as something to be achieved, he says self-esteem is a given. Another great book with a simular approach is Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being.
extraordinary insights and understandable text Jul 7, 1999
Jack is a tremendous speaker and motivator and in just a short time can create an excitement in an individual or organization that is electric. The book is written in the same down to earth communication method that make Jack so exciting to hear in a conference. I recommend it.
