Review by bexaplex
Self-help books are kind of like horoscopes; they're general enough to apply to almost anyone and yet still personal enough to feel a little eerie. This one did its job - it was uplifting, but not specifically helpful.I bought this book after listening to a talk on leadership inspired by it. The author is a former minister, and his writing style is in tune with that background. He litters the text with parables and anecdotes.
