Based on this information, I had high hopes for the book because Mr. Hawkins seemed to embody the leader that his book promised and while reading the book, it became clear that even though Mr. Hawkins is very much guided by his religion, the book nevertheless has lessons that anyone can build upon on their path to become a leader or a VIP as the title suggests.
Mr. Hawkins wants to enable his readers to establish a life of Influence that embodies vision, integrity, and purpose. He uses stories derived from the bible or aligned with religious beliefs as well as examples of challenges encountered to show the reader how to become a better person and, more importantly, an inspirational leader.
I found this book to be a good read when focusing on what is important in seeking to build a career or how to reinvent a career. The book may strike some readers as being oriented too much along the bible, but I found the bible references to be hooks for a story rather than the focus. The lessons summarized by Mr. Hawkins are generally applicable and important for anyone that wants to pursue a meaningful career and not just a job.
