Review: I've Got Your Back: A Leadership Parable
I've Got Your Back: A Leadership Parable by James C. Galvin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit that I am a fan boy of reading a lot of books on leadership and self-improvement. Sometimes probably I spend time reading that I should be doing. So, having stated that disclaimer (I would probably read the leadership secrets of Hitler....) Here are some themes from the book that struck a chord with me:
1. His emphasis on followership
2. The three levels of leadership followership.
3. Godly good advice about following well.
How would I rate this book? I am thinking it is a solid B. I loved the first part about the story. The story was an A grade. the second half was ok but I am always wary of putting a theme together from Verses all over the Bible. If it were me, I would have built the theological section just around the Paul/Timothy dynamic. But I have yet to write a book so I am just a lame armchair quarterback here. But I am throwing my opinion out there for the 3 people that read my blog to hear....
The bottom line is that I am happy to have it in my library and will use it as a reference much in the same way that I have the Bible and Getting Things Done.
