Book Review: Put Your Dream to the Test by John C. Maxwell

I've read/own several John C. Maxwell books, but Put Your Dream to the Test is by far my favorite.  While most books by Maxwell are aimed primarily at leaders, this book is for dreamers, and specifically, dreamers who really want to see their dreams become reality!  I've read a number of books of this type and by far this is the most practical, helpful and honest book I've seen.  By answering his ten questions, your dream becomes clearer and more tangible to the point of finally just following through and making it happen!

Working through the ten questions in this book is not easy, but it is helpful to have such a clear game plan to follow.  It is also widely applicable, whether you want to start a new business or work toward being a better parent, or in my personal case, laying the foundation for a ministry.  While I have grown tired of reading stories and quotes from other people in Maxwell’s other books, the ones in this book were particularly helpful and time allotted for them was better balanced with his practical advice.  This book is going to become the graduation gift that I give to all graduates, especially the ones with big dreams.  I can’t think of a more useful book to give!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com  book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
