Maxwell has found a formula that works. Author of the successful The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, the Atlanta-based Christian business guru is back with 17 rules for teamwork. Are Maxwell’s laws «indisputable»? Perhaps. But they’re also obvious and banal: the weakest link will bring down a team, teammates have to be able to count on one another, etc. Maxwell urges readers to find a mentor, «see the big picture» and be willing to work hard.

The cutesy alliteration and rhyme («The Goal Is More Important than the Role») and the tired sports metaphors («The Scoreboard Is Essential to Winning») are uninspired and uninspiring. Maxwell is enamored of his laws, but the sense that radiates from the pages of this book is that he is also enamored of himself; even the acknowledgements lack humility, as he thanks one assistant for «extend[ing] my influence around the world.» He is perhaps to be commended for writing a book that will be accessible to the broadest possible audience.
