I owned "Killing Cockroaches" for about 5 weeks before getting a chance to read it, but it has quickly become my new favorite book. Here are some things I liked...
1. There are no chapters // This sounds odd, but this is the "scattered musings" part, as best I can figure. Author Tony Morgan shares his thoughts on a myriad of subjects concerning leadership and there is no rhyme or reason to his though process. Some might find this irritating, but allowed me the freedom to read as time allowed and not feel pressured to finish the chapter I was reading.
2. It's practical and applicable // To address issues and problems within any organization without an opportunity for resolution solves nothing. Morgan is careful to provide practical and applicable teaching to his ministry experiences. It's honest and genuine, as well.
3. It's creatively thought out and designed // This has nothing to do with the content of the book, but I enjoy creativity. Printed on the edge of the pages on the non-bound side are little cockroaches, printed in such a way that when you flip through the pages, the roaches appear to run all over the page. Again, it has nothing to the book, but like I said, I enjoy creativity.

Some things I didn't like...
1. The ending // The lasting leadership musing printed seemed to be a plea to readers to not cast judgment, as if it had already happened. In the the grand scheme of things, it's not a bad thing, I guess, but it left me with a negative last mental image. I would have liked to see this included at the beginning so there's time to say what needs to be said, but then win readers back with solid leadership insight and honesty. Don't take it out, just move it.

2. Some of the musings from Morgan seem to be written from a "business of the church" (administration first) standpoint instead of an overall "ministry of the church" (teaching the Gospel) standpoint. His background is in the business world, so I'm not surprised to catch an air of this every once in a while.

Overall, I did enjoy reading "Killing Cockroaches" and would recommend the book to any Pastor/Lead Teacher in a church setting. Morgan is willing to share his knowledge in an open, honest, and sometimes hilarious manor.

I enjoyed reading Tony Morgan's questions and stories about leadership. If you are interested in the difference between ministry in theory and ministry in reality, then you want to read this book.

Hear my heart - I love being a part of people changing their lives for the better! There are lots of my job that I love.

However, cockroaches literally make my skin crawl and there are parts of my job I greatly dislike. I accepted responsibility for the icky jobs when I accepted leadership position for the parts of my job that make me excited to wake up in the morning. Being aware of the reality is to be forewarned. I accept opportunities because of the good parts, and also because I can live with the bad parts (Thanks Tony for this wisdom!)

My favorite line in the book is "So the moral of the story is this: you get to decide where your time goes... And if you don't decide, others will decide for you." Profound, huh? So if you've heard it before, are you really practicing it?

When I'm feeling discouraged, I check to make sure I'm not believing a lie somewhere - look on pp. 90-91

Above all, use this fine gem of a book to start the conversation about what stirs your heart. Check in with the other person involved to ensure that you're having a conversation WITH them, not talking AT them. Here's to serving well!

Killing Cockroaches is the product of Tony Morgan's work on the subject of leadership and observations of life. Much of his work has appeared in various forms on his blog [...] or in some other similar format.

Each section is short, direct, and intentionally transparent. Morgan is the Chief Strategic Officer (a strange title for a "church staff guy") at NewSpring Church in Anderson, SC [...].

Morgan's conversation style and quick wit makes the book an easy and entertaining read. His insights serve to cause the reader to pause and consider "cockroaches" in his own life. As a pastor, I enjoyed the book. It reminded me about the tyranny of the urgent and how often I can lose sight of the big picture and get caught up doing something less meaningful.

I recommend the book to any leader, but especially those who lead in the context of church. The questions that Morgan asks will cause you to argue with the book...only to pause, raise a white flag, and look at the issues which were already in front of you.

Bravo Tony!! An incredible resource and well worth the time and money I invested to learn from you.

I like Tony's blog...I like other writings of Tony....but this on was not my favorite. I think many things could have been said in a more succinct way, thus making it more appealing to me. The topic was good, don't get me wrong. I just felt like it took to long at times to get to the point...but that is my preference. Again, Tony's material is great...and I love his insight and writings....but this one did not grab me as others did.

I was one of the few hundred that had a chance to read this book early. I love a good leadership book. Killing Cockroaches is no execption.

First off, Tony does share how to kill a cockroach. That should put that myth to bed right now.

What I loved most about Tony's book is how he was able to take some really great leadership ideas and techniques and apply them to real life for me; instead of reading about a leadership theory and trying to figure out how to apply it to my life, which is the case in most other leadership books.

Why is that important? I went from reading to implementing with no need for translation.

This will be a book that will be referred to repeatedly as a leadership tool and not just a book I read.

Thanks Tony!

P.S. Sorry, I don't give out 5 stars. I am saving that for when I write my own book some day... :-)

interesting and unique with great food for thought, but not the read you want if you know nothing about leadership
