The People Factor by Van Moody Book Review

 Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the® 

I have to admit, I'm not a people person. Ever since I was a child I've always either shyed away from people or never really fit in. As I grew older I tended to gravitate toward the wrong kind of people and my life tuned upside down. The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose, by Van Moody is the one book I wish I had during those years. However, I can say since reading his insightful book now as an adult in my fifties, I know where and went wrong and how to change it.

Van Moody happens to be from my home town, in fact his church isn't far from where I live, but I've never seen him speak but so glad to have been able to read this wonderful book he has written.

The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose is filled with many Biblical principles to get your on the right relationship track. It moves you forward from the negative people in your live to the positives. Van Moody is straight forward  in getting the right people in your life at the right time. 

If you're struggling with the people factor and need to make a "relationship" change then Van Moody's The People Factor is the one book you must have. It will make a positive impact in your life!


The relationships in your life will make the difference between happiness and misery.
The right relationship will launch you to the heights of achievement; the wrong one will tether you to mediocrity. Your relationships will be your sources of greatest joy and your venues of greatest pain. Van Moody says, “When people show you who they are, pay attention.” 
We need to undertake the important task of evaluating our relationships intelligently. We need to recognize the people with whom God has called us to walk in mutually beneficial relationships and to identify those who will derail our destinies or hinder His purposes for our lives. It is high time we cultivate our Relational IQs, understanding not only how to build great relationships but also how to avoid or skillfully exit bad ones. 
Van Moody saw this need every day of his pastoral life, but he could not find a concise, practical resource for people who need to become more relationally savvy. He needed a beyond-the-basics study guide for Relational IQ. The People Factor is his solution.
God works in our lives through our relationships. Yet, all too often, we get our relationship advice from the most toxic sources we can find. The People Factor is based on the most effective, trustworthy relationship book of all time: the Bible.
If you hunger for a richer, more fulfilling life, your Relational IQ is the place to start. If you put The People Factor principles to work, you will become stronger, happier, and healthier in all your relationships. You will be a better spouse, a better friend, a better boss, a better parent, and a better person.

You can pick up your copy for only $16.99 at Thomas Nelson.
