Reading about the life of one of the most influential people in history is very interesting. Though this book had little information about Luther's childhood (apparently not much is known) the events of the rest of his life were beneficial to understanding his doctrine of justification and why he was such a divisive person. There were some very good leadership lessons to learn from Luther's life: his staunch conviction, how he dealt with rejection and despair and--more negatively-- how he let anger affect the end of his ministry. For this reason I would recommend the book to people who are intereste in the leadership lessons but there are other like John Newton who provide better examples.
