Small book but worth the purchase

A great way of putting thought into a better perspective. Sometimes we don't stop and think about things and that's a problem. This book has many practical ways of improving lives and businesses by applying the ways of successful thinkers. Worth the price and some.

How Successful People Think review

This is a good book. Maxwell can certainly speak from experience on this subject, and as always, he presents his concepts in his signature clear, concise, easy-to-understand style. The book is well thought-out, and has an excellent call for action at the end of each chapter. A good read. Book shipped fairly promptly, but unfortunately, the high shipping cost effectively neutralized the savings off retail.

Big-Picture Thinking

I had read Maxwell's previous book, Thinking for a Change. This audio is based on that book, and will teach listeners the 11 most effective ways to think. A quick sample includes Big-Picture Thinking - seeing the world beyond your own needs and how that leads to great ideas; Focused Thinking - removing mental clutter and distractions to realize your full potential; Creative Thinking - thinking in unique ways and making breakthroughs; Shared Thinking - working with others to compound results; Reflective Thinking - looking at the past to gain a better understanding of the future.

A top pick for libraries and business-minded thinkers alike

Change your thinking and you change your life: that's the basic concept of HOW SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE THINK, offering a simple treatise on how and when to question popular thinking and how to focus thinking to tap into creativity. Eleven keys in a small book derived from material previously published in THINKING FOR A CHANGE makes for a top pick for libraries and business-minded thinkers alike.

Put Your Dreams To The Test

Excellent. Easy read with ten very thoughful questions that can and should desirve deep introspection. Maxwell's believe in every person's potential is awesome!

Great Little Book By Maxwell

"How Successful People Think" by John Maxwell is a great little book and a timely read, particularly in a day where media and others encourage us to follow our feelings almost to the exclusion of thinking. The book covers thinking in several areas: 1. Focused thinking. 2. Creative thinking. 3. Realistic thinking. 4. Strategic thinking. 5. Possibility thinking. 6. Reflective thinking. 7. Question Popular Thinking. 8. Shared thinking. 9. Unselfish thinking (get outside yourself!). 10. Bottom-Line thinking. Each chapter is around 10 pages and usually contains the following that applies to the area of thinking being discussed: 1. Sayings by famous people. 2. Benefits of the particular type of thinking. 3. Principles to apply to improve your thinking in that area. This is not one of those "touchy-feely" books designed to make you feel good about yourself. If that is what you are looking for, then do not bother to read. Instead, if you want to improve your thinking in any of several areas, then this book is for you. The narrative flows freely and contains great information to inspire and challenge you. Read, enjoy, and be challenged. Highly recommended!
