So when Thomas Nelson Publishers released A Leader's Heart 365-Day Devotional Journal I quickly downloaded the ebook and started including it in my daily reading. I'm sorry I did. Not because it's not filled with Maxwell's signature insights, gleaned from works such as the above-mentioned books, along with others like The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork and The Maxwell Leadership Bible, but solely because I wished I had bought it in hard copy instead (both for its elegant design and for the space following each entry that allows for the reader to jot notes and interact with the day's reading, aspects that cannot be fully used or appreciated in the ebook version).
A Leader's Heart is a helpful addition to the Maxwell canon. While it's not the best way to discover John Maxwell's writings on leadership (without his trademark stories, some entries will seem lacking in depth or emotion), it is a fine tool for anyone who has read and appreciated any of his previous works. It will recall, refresh, and reinforce some of the strong points of those works, and help any reader keep key, critical leadership principles in the forefront of his or her mind. And, its attractive design makes it a perfect gift purchase for anyone in leadership.
