Item description for Teach Your Team to Fish: Using Ancient Wisdom for Inspired Teamwork by Laurie Beth Jones...
Overview Why does the modern-day search for romance so often end in disappointment especially for women? Is it something women do? Something they don't do? Are women missing important information about the opposite sex or about themselves? Is there something wrong with them that they long so desperately for 'til death do us part?
Sadly, many women today see their ongoing singleness as a weakness or lack of worth. In truth, women's dreams go unfulfilled not because they do not deserve for them to come true, but often because of wrong assumptions assumptions that can be corrected by learning a few key truths. In The Unspoken Rules of Love, authors Michelle McKinney Hammond and Joel Brooks seek to clear up these misperceptions, giving women the information they need to succeed in long-term, lasting male-female relationships and teaching them how to find satisfaction, value, and fulfillment in their relationship with God, both while they wait and after the wait is over.
Drawing on both the perspectives of its male and female authors, this book deals with the hard issues and the questions women ponder as they consider the dilemma of how to obtain lasting love. The Unspoken Rules of Love will help women adjust their desires, redefine what they are attracted to, set their values in order, and determine their goals freeing them at last to pursue the loving relationships they desire.

Skip this one and find a real leadership book based on Jesus' principles Feb 26, 2008
I have read many books on leadership...many based on Christian principles as this one purports to be. This volume is perhaps one of the worst books I have read from the genre. If this were merely sold as a worldly but principle-based leadership book it would be bad enough, but it is all the more irritating to me given that the author claims to have taken her cues from careful observation of Jesus' actions and lessons.
In fact, it seems to me that Jones first made the list of leadership qualities and practices that she wanted to write about and then bent over backwards to find an example from Jesus' life or teaching to fit the items on her list. Many of her examples are such a stretch or taken so far out of context so as to be an insult to the reader's intelligence.
The author trivializes Jesus' profound teachings and exploits his servant example in order to write the book she wants, not necessarily to faithfully reflect on the kind of leader Jesus was or would endorse.
Perhaps Jones was under pressure from her publishers to follow up on Jesus, CEO, and crank something out for the hungry, lucrative Christian leadership market. Maybe next time she'll pay more attention to her integrity as an author and have more respect for the would-be buyer/reader's time and money. If Jones had taken perhaps Jesus' greatest maxim to love one's neighbor as one's self, then she couldn't have in good conscience foisted this low quality work on us.
Awesome leadership book Feb 21, 2007
This book is probably the best and easiest leadership books I have ever read. Laurie Beth Jones did an amazing job keeping the chapters short, but powerful. This is a book you will want on your desk, like a business reference! Unbeliveable!! A must read for every person who leads anything or anybody!
More wisdom from a crackpot Jul 22, 2005
Ms. Jones is delusional thinking Jesus was a capitalist (remember the story about Jesus driving the money changers out of the Temple). I expect her next venture will be to sell snake oil.
Instead of wasting your money on this book, why not buy a good book on astrology or the bible and skip this hallucinogenic translation.
unbelievable Jul 20, 2004
I am French and for us it is unbelievable how in the US religion and management could be mixed. This book is a good example. It is nice to read it even if some chapters are a bit strange : "He (Jesus) understood mergers and acquisitions" using as an example "a sower went out to sow ...".
Teach Your Team to Fish May 11, 2004
This book is a wonderful tool for focusing on the importance of your relationship with the people in your team or your employees. It gives a simple, easy to read, but important message on working with people using the example of Jesus and his disciples. I highly recommend it to anyone who manages/supervises people including children! Well written and well worth the read.
