John Maxwell – Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Learn

25557928

Author John Maxwell writes in his book Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Lose Learn that he has written over 70 books on leadership!!  That seems like a lot.  How does someone write so many books on the same topic without using the same research material?

Anyway, Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Lose Learn is a mistake about failures and mistakes.  Quite literally.  The whole book is about the importance of making mistakes.  Of more specifically, how we can use mistakes to help us grow.

As a volleyball coach I thought the content of this book was great.  For the coach though, not the players.  I understand Maxwell has other books like Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Lose Learn for teens and Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Lose Learn for Kids which I may have to force strongly suggest for my players to read.

As much as I liked the content, I did not enjoy the author’s writing format all that much – there were way too many lists.  His main points would have a list of the good and bad and each list would have it’s own list as if the entire topic was exhaustively covered by his lists of 6 or 7 bullet points for each.  If that was the case he wouldn’t have needed to write over 70 books!

Nice quick read.  I read it from the point of view of a coach coaching players, but I could definitely see it being useful for anyone whose ever had a setback, so in other words, everyone.
