I had bought 12 Developing the Leader Within books many years ago and when I would meet people who talked about wanting to become a Leader or even how to Lead themselves better, this was the book I would pull from the shelves and give them a copy to read and then follow-up with the questions/activities over lunch with them.

This book is powerful for identifying how to lead, what leadership is, what this journey will take and give to you and its done so in the Maxwell way of making it easy to digest and powerful to grasp.  2.0 updates the original content with more lessons from Maxwell and his readers. Am going to buy more copies to keep around and continue to help others develop their leadership.

I was able to read Developing the Leader within you 2.0 for free from Netgalley, the publisher and the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 
I did not read version 1.0 but I know that John Maxwell presents new leadership insights with having over 50 years of leadership experience.
The one thing I will remember from this book is to keep asking myself "How far can I go?".  This question reminds you that success is a journey and we will continue to grow.  The book has excellent advice and it will have everyone focusing more on success and their future.
Recommend it to everyone who wants to have their own business and start their own business.

Indeed this new edition of Developing the Leader Within You is much better compared to the previous one. As someone who continuously growing, John Maxwell presents new leadership insights given his 50 plus years of leadership experience.

One of the best ideas that resonated with me is about growth. Leaders continue to grow. I like the concept of asking yourself “How far can I go?” This question reflects the idea that success is not a destination but rather a journey. As long as we are living, we never stop growing.

Moreover, this book made me feel the humility of John in the face of success he attain internationally.

One of the best books I've ever read on leadership!  I have pages and pages of notes and quotes... I could not put it down.  I'm grateful that this book gave me a giant boost of personal growth and ideas to focus on in the future.  I've already tweaked several things for the week ahead as a result of reading this book
