Women should read this book to sustain the priesthood in their lives.
The responsibility of the priesthood is so much more then I realized. Seeing how men magnify their callings helps me to appreciate the priesthood. They have a world to save in and our of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We all need to "Go to Work!"
Since we all want to meet God we should find out how and reading "Men of Influence" is the beginning to do so.

I would probably say 3.5 stars. I liked it, but sometimes it got to the point of "can I hurry up and finish this book so I can move on" kind of feeling. There were some parts that were AWESOME and really made me think of the importance of the priesthood. The Priesthood really is an amazing blessing and I am grateful that I have been blessed with it in my home growing up and that I will have it for all eternity in my own family.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought Millet did a great job of not just expressing his own opinions, but in referencing them to general authority quotes. Its the type of book that is a quick read and you walk away wanting to do better with your life.

Robert Millet discusses important aspects of becoming a more effective and even powerful bearer of the priesthood. From more meaningful prayer to greater knowledge of gospel truth to stronger faith, men can develop greater power in the priesthood.

This book is really well written and organized and a great reminder of things that I should be doing. I've known men in my life who exemplified the power of God and reading this book reminded me of the feeling that I had around them.
Jim Davis
My understanding of the Power of God and my potential to use that power was magnified after this quick read. It was inspiring and uplifting.
Josh
Really great book about using the priesthood to benefit the lives' of others. I recommend it and also Men of Valor by the same other.
Ridgeline
This book is one I hope my sons will read and take to heart the depth of importance it is to honor and utilize the priesthood.
Shane
I like Millet's writing style and insights, more autobiographical than I expected.
Kirk
A bit preachy for my taste. Men of Valor was better. More inspirational.
Rebecca
Another insightful Robert Millet book. He is such a great author!
Brent
