John explains the purpose of this book is to help the reader so that they could learn and understand the day to day rituals and habits of some of the more successful people in the world.
There are 8 chapters, totalling about 300 pages in this book. John interviewed 16 people, such as talk show host Wendy Williams, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, musician Carlos Santana and Pastor Joel Osteen. John asked each person to share what their daily habits and routines look like so the rest of the world can learn from them.
This is a good book, but not a great book. At times, I felt like I was reading an infomercial as a great deal of time was spent on explaining who each individual was. There were times the book did not have a good flow to it, and that made an easy book, more difficult to read.
What John is attempting to do is great, but I think there were better ways to accomplish his task. I appreciated learning more about each person, including John, but was left wanting more.
Overall, I would say this is a good book, and worth reading.

While this book is easy to read and just under 170 pages, Mohler has filled this book with wonderful insights into The Lord's Prayer. If read with an open mind, this book will challenge some of the basic beliefs we have had about the Lord's Prayer.
While there is some theology in the book, it is basic enough in that the reader should benefit from reading this book. We are reminded that familiarity with something tends to cause us to lose its significance and that is true with the Lord's Prayer. Mohler is an excellent author and this is an excellent addition to his writing. I would highly recommend this book.

There are 52 weekly devotions based on what Todd learned from the football field and from his father. Each devotion has a unique title and is about 3-4 pages long, and ends with ways the reader can attempt to go deeper in their relationship with God. There are suggested scripture readings and questions to consider.
If you are a sports fan, especially a football fan, or even a coach who is looking for some inspirational stories to talk to your team about, then this book would be a great addition to your library.
Each devotion is easy to read and many of them can be challenging as well.
Overall, I would recommend this book.

Basically there are 2 chapters with different titles, along with different material which has been included in the book. John has a very personal way of writing which helps draw the reader to his books. They are understandable and very practical, which is one of the reasons I appreciate his books.
There are 10 chapters in the book, with each chapter averaging about 20 pages. The chapters are filled with practical advice, illustrations and some theory. Each chapter contains Action Steps at the end of the chapter which is a great summary of the chapter.
Overall, this is an excellent book on leadership. I would highly recommend this for those wanting to go deeper in their ability to lead others.
