Someone loaned me this book. They told me that they had enjoyed it and that it had lots of interesting insights into leadership for churches and businesses. Well, I need good insights, so I started to read it. I tried, I honestly tried. But it drove me up the wall.
The writing style is fragmented, the pages use multiple typefaces and the text is scattered with weak jokes. It could be that this book is amazing, it could well be full of leadership secrets that would transform my life. But, the whole presentation is so frustrating that I gave up only about a third of the way through.
I suppose the problem could be that I’m just too old for a book which was written for a younger generation. I certainly have a headache from trying to get to grips with it.
It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get It and Keep It has numerous five star reviews on Amazon and lots of famous people think its great. I’m just glad I’d borrowed it and not paid for it. In case I sound too rude, I’m also very grateful to the person who suggested I read the book. I do need stretching and pointed to new things – even if I can’t always finish them.
