Dare to Dream… Then Do It

Dare to Dream... Then Do ItDare to Dream… Then Do It
What Successful People Know and Do
Authors: John C. Maxwell
Hardcover: 120 pages, $9.74
Published: April, 2006

I’ve read some of Maxwell’s other books and enjoy them immensely, but was initially disappointed when this one came in the mail. I was looking for something longer and meatier. This isn’t so much of a Maxwell book as a Maxwell compilation. Much of the information is pulled from many of Maxwell’s other books. Though seeing as how I have not read most of his other books, this turned out to be a pretty good read.

The book is broken into nine chapters, with each chapter containing some inspirational stories as well as relevant quotes from famous individuals. Don’t look for anything in-depth, meaty or even ready-to-apply principles here. This is mostly for inspirational purposes only. But if you are in need of a book that gets your creative motor going, Dare to Dream is a good place to start.

  1. Stoney, I find it so common for authors to simply repeat one idea but using different words to do so. After reading that Book “Positioning” for which I wrote a review, I just started reading another book by the same author. Even though the information is good, it seems that he just rephrases what was said in previous books.

    Then when you have an author who has 10 books in print, you notice that a book #11 comes out and you can call it “Poppuri”. It has everything from previous 10 books summed up in one.

    I know what you mean. I think this was a case that the publishers wanted to release another book so it was more them doing it than the author. Lucky for me I haven’t read most of his other books yet.
