The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player: Becoming the Kind of Person Every Team Wants

The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player: Becoming the Kind of Person Every Team WantsThe 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player: Becoming the Kind of Person Every Team Wants by John C. Maxwell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It quotes a man’s inspiration to believe in bible and then fight because he interpreted ” If a man can make peace by fighting, he is a peacemaker”. This on the initial few pages may put off any peaceful reader.

On further tolerance and reading on,
It quotes
” It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of he crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Such quotes makes you feel that you can write something and leave your name behind as a quotable quote.

The book is small and readable. If you care about baseball , there is some example from that. Quoting movies in a leadership book was strange. This book does that too. On the preface you see that there was someone to write and proofread this small book. This makes me believe that you need a bunch of quotes and movies and let someone else write the book and proofread and put their names in acknowledgement. Not Ghostwriting!

In sum total this book is a miracle, as it has very little to offer but still makes it to the shelves of leadership skills collection in university.
