    George Barna has earned the reputation as a respected voice regarding trends and developments in American spirituality. He lends his pen and expertise to his new work, Master Leaders. The book is a collection of insights gathered from thirty of the nation's top leaders. They are drawn from the world of sports, politics, business, and religion. Barna collects quite a bit of information. Barna also includes a couple of helpful appendices. One listing a brief biography of the participants, and another detailing their works. The book is filled with some great insights. Most of them, however, have been presented before. That's part of the problem with books on leadership. After awhile, they tend to sound the same. With that said, however, Barna still manages to inject some great thoughts and insights. The chapter on character as well as the one on faith and morals are particularly good. Many "mainstream" leadership books tend to skirt over these issues. Finally, it's worth me noting that the style of the book is a little distracting. Barna is very open that the book is placed in a fictional setting. All of the comments and insights are true, but they were obtained in separate interviews. Barna presents them as taking place in one large gathering. At first, the concept struck me as interesting. It eventually began to be a little bothersome. I'm not sure if the book would have been better in another format, but I think I would have liked to find out.Overall, the book is well worth the read. Anyone wanting to grow in leadership would enjoy Master Leaders. It is filled with a number of great thoughts and quotes. The appendices offer a great bibliography for additional study. Despite some of the book's drawbacks, I would highly recommend it.

    George Barna, a leader himself in the field of leadership, engaged some of the best minds in the leadership field, to write a book about what he gleaned important from these Master Leaders. These were proven men in their respective arenas of work- head football coaches, ministers, CEO, and etc.- all successful and respected by many.The beauty of the book, in part, lies in how Barna writes it. He tells a story, as if he were the MC (Master of Ceremonies) of a leadership conference that brought together these Master Leaders into one collective forum. Barna communicates the story from the vantage point of sitting in the green room, eating, drinking coffee, and attentively listening for nuggets to be dropped by each one. It is a masterful piece of work.I've found that leadership books can be dry, but such wasn't the case for this one. The crafted messages of Master Leaders are told in such a way as to cause the reader to believe that it all happened that way. That's powerful storytelling that resonates for the long term.For a more extensive review, go to http://douglasryoung.net/2009/11/06/master-leaders-tyndale-book-review/
