Loved the way this book was written--clear and concise, yet very readable. I agree with Muff:

Meh...I don't really like parables like this. Just say what you want us to know - disappointed and didn't even finish this book.

Got this as a gift, an easy read. Think it would be good to go through with a group. Good book - and the Lead Like Jesus material they have is very good!
