Here's what leaders are saying about the book:
"This is certainly one of the first books a Christian leader should read. John puts the cookies on the lowest shelf. He speaks from the perspective of 30 years as a CEO, the perspective you have as a Christian leader. Yea God! Yea John! This is a very practical, supremely useful book. It deserves a wide audience."

"Mastering the Management Buckets is simply the best book I have read on Christian management of nonprofit organizations. It is a perfect balance between Biblical wisdom and a Harvard MBA."
Author of the national best-selling book, Joy at Work
"As World Vision helps transform the lives of the world’s poorest children and families in nearly 100 countries, we strive to be leaders and managers who honor God every day. That’s not easy! Mastering the Management Buckets is a fresh reminder of the complexity of the leadership challenge—yet John’s book also delivers practical management insights for our leaders and our in-the-trenches people."

"John Pearson has written a wonderful book that is not only for those aspiring to leadership positions, but those who have been in the management ranks for years. I not only enjoyed it, I learned a few things to boot! So buy the book, grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up, and take notes!"

"John Pearson has just thrown a bucket of cold water into my face…and it woke me up! After reading Mastering the Management Buckets, I was stunned to realize how lazy I had become in my own day to day leadership responsibilities. John has taken all things management and artfully organized them into a system personally honed over the past 35 years, and validates it with scripture. This book is a baptism—a full immersion of management theory and practice—that will enable any leader, seasoned or fresh, to get the results that are not only desired, but critical for mission effectiveness."

John Pearson’s book, Mastering the Management Buckets, is both a great idea-generating tool and ready reference guide for the nonprofit manager. It’s a book I’ll definitely keep in my library.
