    6. I purchased this book several years ago, wrote my maxims, and shared them with my team. In the daily chaos that can often engulf the corporate world, my published maxims, based on Mike's book, have been of great value in providing consistent guidelines to follow - both to myself, and my employees. It has been extremely valuable in leading through those turbulent times. Putting something down on paper is more powerful than relying on what's in your memory, especially during stressful times. An ex [...]

    8. Mike Figliuolo single handedly exposes leaders to their own habits of baffling with bullshit while igniting a passion for authenticity. This idea has the potential to move managers from self important mediocrity to inspiring mentors. If you read one book in ten years about leadership, make this the one. Figliuolo points out that it only works if you actually do it.

    9. Let the record show that this corporate drivel was assigned reading by my Senior Director. Over 200 pages of knuckle-dragging, self-aggrandizing, corporate speak could have easily been reduced to, you guessed it: One Piece of Paper. Only useful for those living their lives without an ounce of introspection, but if that's you, then really, what's the point of living?

    10. The central idea of this book is this: if you can create a core set of maxims that direct your actions as a manager and leader, then your actions will be more consistent and more understandable to the people who work for you. The bulk of the book is devoted to helping you figure out what your maxims should be.As a piece of general introspection it was interesting and fine, but having finished the book (and its exercises) recently, I did not walk away with the feeling that this would something th [...]

    11. I thought the book was really good. The author helps makes things simple when creating goals in life. I agree that we often over think goals, and they often look like something that was stolen from a seminar or book on goals. He challenges you to create memorable statements that keep you focused on what you want to accomplish in life. I'm going to go back and think through creating some of my own maxims.

    12. I had to select a book that interested me in "leadership." Although it was somewhat required reading for my Master's, I really enjoyed it. I liked it because it makes it personal to the reader. The author helps you discover what kind of leader you are and want to be. He helps you discover the "authentic you." And I did, in fact, walk away from the book with my one piece of paper!I highly recommend this book!

    13. The basic concept/premise of the book could have been explained in half the number of pages. Repetitive, over-indulgent, and over-rated. The author is so full of himself. Don't bother buying this book, just "Google" it and whatever summary that comes up is more then enough to know what this book is all about.

    14. Just one more piece of hierarchical top down leadership drivel. I had to really look to find anything useful in the book. The one concept that drew me in is still valuable. It is a good idea to articulate your personal leadership philosophy concisely and powerfully - and to share it. Download the worksheets off the website and save yourself the cost of the book.

    15. I enjoyed this book. The biggest benefit is that it forces you to put into words things you already know about yourself and your leadership. Some things you may not even realize until you try putting them into words. Well worth the quick read and the effort required.

    16. Good stimulant for personal introspection as it applies to leading yourself and others. The book encourages using maxims that can be written on one piece of paper to remind you how to live and how to lead.

    17. It was ok, but for a book that decries buzzwords I found it light on substance. I didn't walk away with any next steps other than to take a piece of paper and right down inspirational and helpful sayings on it.
