The concepts just stay in my head

This book really packs a punch. The concepts make so much sense. Even now when dealing with people, pictures painted in this book pop into my remembrance which helps me deal with the situation.

I highly recommend this book for business and church (and any) leader.

Really Great Book on how to manage people

Would you listen to The Way of the Shepherd again? Why?

The book uses analogies of a sheep herder that can be easily applied to all management situations and personalities on any team. I must read for any manager/leader.

Absolutely MAGNIFICENT!

Hands down the best, most enlightening book I've ever encountered! Not only did I learn the way of the shepherd, it was remarkably well written and entertaining. I was so impressed that I decided to write the first book review I've ever written.

Awesome yet simple

As someone who has been out of management for a couple of years I picked up this book in hopes to remind myself of basic management principles. Instead not only was I reminded of things I had forgotten I also learned a lot of new material. The way the story is read, the fact that it's an actual story and not just a set of instructions makes listening much easier and learning a lot more fun. would recommend this book to anyone in management.
