I love this book. Sterling Sill was an incredibly studious man, and what a blessing for him to share his studies of great people with us. Each chapter includes an inspiring look at people that have worked hard at their different talents, so when the time was right, they were ready to give themselves to greater things.

The original book has 13 more chapters (disappointed those were taken out for this version), but this book has two additional chapters by Dan McCormick on Socrates and Sterling Sill

A great read and I enjoyed every story. What a powerful premise behind both the original edition by Sterling W Sill and this re-release by Dan McCormick with his updated data and perspective. The legacies of great leaders are timeless and these simple yet profound lessons inspire me to study more deeply these great lives. In our world today we are too often taken by the flash and glitter of our contemporary so called "heroes" and while some are truly great men and women, many are empty suits who ...more
This one was hard to rate. I really wanted to rate it 4 or 5 stars, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. I really wavered between 2 and 3 stars, but ended up at 3 because I was really glad I had been exposed to this book.

I love the idea of this book. I love the premise. I love the lessons that we can learn from great lives. I loved reading about these powerful people and what drove them.

Unfortunately, the book is not well written. It was painful to have to slog through the endless moralizing
I loved the exposure to many great and inspiring people that I knew so little about. It makes me want to read their autobiographies or a biography of their lives and glean more. There is so much good in this book. I highlighted things that impressed me. I can't wait to go back and study my margins and thoughts again. I personally have gained much from the lives of these people. In the chapter on Job (p.144) the authors state, "many of our greatest blessings are frequently lost", because of misha ...more
Loved this book, very insightful and interesting.
There are some very inspiring people in our history. I am in awe of what people are able to accomplish and the impact they have on history. A few people talked about in this book are Jesus, Benjamin Franklin, Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln, Socrates, The Prophet Job, and many others.

Attended a Successful People Seminar through my home-business. The co-author Dan McCormick presented on this book and gave great insight on why we should all be studying lives of great people. I am excited to read it and will post information when I have finished.

I LOVED this book! I plan to read it again--maybe a chapter a day. It inspired me to want to learn from the best who have lived and become more like them.
I enjoyed this book and learned a lot about great leaders, some of whom I didn't know much about.
