It’s about the things a leader must never do. The title hooked me, although a list of “nevers” almost seemed cliche. The writing style was easygoing but the insights packed a punch. Points were emphasized by experience, and then held up against the ultimate model of leadership, Jesus Christ.
I don’t read a lot of books on leadership, but I liked this one. It was fresh. McKenna got me genuinely interested in what he had to say about leadership, his stories, other people’s examples, and biblical principles. And I might forget most of the stuff in the book, but I have a handful of nuggets that I’m most likely not going to forget.
In the Philippines, this book is available at the OMF Lit Bookshop under the title Never Steal a Paper Clip (which, if you ask me, is a catchier title). Get it at a crazy low price if you go to the OMF Lit Bookshop’s crazy sale.
