Reviews - What do customers think about Be A People Person (Revised)?
The Gold Standard In Interpersonal Relationships Mar 31, 2006
I realize this is not the very latest from the genius of John Maxwell, but it the latest one I read. If I see Maxwell's name on it I will buy it and read it immediately. I could not but notice one review in particular that express disapproval of Maxwell writing a "religious" book in disguise. I wonder if this person ever thought that many of the social graces and principles of success are "religious" in origin?
All that aside this little book plainly, and smartly reminds people that if they are to be a successful leader and reach goals in whatever endeavor they choose within OR outside the church being a people person will bring you success as a leader. Basically Maxwell encourages readers to be other-centered and not self-centered. He shows us that when we help others to become better we all become better and we can achieve great things together.
When it comes to learning leadership principles John Maxwell stands head and shoulders above the rest... He is the real deal
Pro and con Jan 18, 2005
Pro: It gives helpful advice on how to deal with difficult people from a Christian perspective. Con: A lot of the advice is just a re-inerating of what is said in Dale Carnegie's book, "How To Win Friends And Influence People."
