A short but powerful book, How High Will You Climb? is an abridgement of The Winning Attitude, which was first published in 1993. In his latest publication, bestselling author John C. Maxwell provides the tools needed to cultivate the right, that is a positive, attitude. In fourteen concise chapters that are divided into four parts he explains the importance of attitude, how attitude is formed, what makes an attitude crash, and how to change one’s attitude. Throughout, the book is interspersed with Biblical and personal examples. How High Will You Climb? is surprisingly practical: each chapter contains a section on „attitude application“ and additionally the book ends with a study guide.

Although I am familiar with John C. Maxwell and several of his books adorn our bookshelves, I have to admit that this was the first of his books I’ve actually read. But it most certainly won’t be the last one. I really liked How High Will You Climb? and got a lot out of it. It is very motivational and inspiring. I am definitely recommending it but I’d say get the print copy as you’ll want to be able to highlight and comment on passages that speak to you.
