Love Maxwell, and "Today Matters" offers good direction. However, presentation is uninspiring & flat. Other Maxwell books might be better use of time.

I did not like this audio cd at all. John Maxwell's message and his tone were 'preachy', a little condescending and flat. I usually listen to an audio cd 2ce before I send it back, but this one I couldn't even get through once. There are a lot better books on this topic.

This author gave some great suggestions for how to prioritize your days - he encouraged me not to procrastinate. He also spoke from his personal experiences about the consequences of not handling the important matters first. GREAT LISTEN!!

I have loved John Maxwell's two audio books on this website. He is clear and has great examples. They get me focused and on track of life.

John C Maxwell is not only an excellent writer - he is an excellent speaker. His voice is so comfortable to listen to. I listened to this 3-CD series twice before I mailed it back. I had the priviilege to hear John Maxwell in person earlier this year, and he is awesome. He weaves stories and laughter into his teachings - and as I listened, time flew by without me even noticing. The princicples in this book are easy to grasp - it's everyday stuff. It's colorful - it's motivational - I wish more people would live by them!
