"I have known Julian for some time now and admire his zeal and zest for life. He has a unique way of injecting life into situations he finds himself. Now he has done that through writing, writing a book. Having written a good number of books myself I know how much work and effort is needed. But because Julian has a zeal and zest for life, that is reflected in his book. This book is easy to read, not complicated but covers complex issue and self-assessing. This book addresses the challenges you will face as a leader and allow you to shift your style accordingly. I particularly enjoyed the chapter 19.13 on Layers not Levels. What a great thought, one that helps leaders shift in their approach to life as we lay down foundations as layers. I can thoroughly recommend this book! It’s for everyone."

"Soooooo much work has gone into this book of yours! I'm taken back by the arrangement, effort, care and attention given to it.
It's humble, thoughtful and gentle in style, yet it's strong and resolute in direction. Well done Julian!!!!"

"This well written Christian leadership book flows from Julian’s personal leadership journey. It is immensely practical and delightfully readable. However, don’t let the title deceive you … this is not just for 19 year old emerging leaders. It is for every leader who once was 19. I’ve been in Christian leadership for nearly 40 years and found it to be fresh, relevant and a wonderful stimulus to help me stay true to my personal leadership journey. I highly recommend it for both you and those you are helping to develop as leaders."

"One of the greatest gifts a leader can have is faithfulness. In the instant generation we live in, full of quick fixes and fast paced changes, longevity is vastly over looked and faithfulness is undervalued. Within the kingdom of God, we especially understand the role it has to play.
In the parable of the talents, Jesus uses the phrase "well done good and faithful servant". Not successful, not highly educated, not famous...faithful! Faithfulness is essential to strong leadership.
With over 25 years of leadership experience, Julian Clark has already done far greater than many others, because he has lead with faithfulness. This book is testament to that.
19 is the story of a faithful leader, who has embraced the challenges & joys of leadership for well over two decades. This book is packed full of great lessons, stories & examples that any leader can learn from.
As a leader, I always want to learn from people with experience, not just education. People who can guide me on a path that they’ve actually walked themselves. The principles given in 19 are not just theory, but lessons that have been learned through real life failures & success. The experiences shared in these pages and questions asked of the reader; will help you to grow as a leader, whatever your current capacity."

"After being under Julian's leadership and guidance for 2 years whilst leading a team of my own, I have benefitted tremendously from the close-up teaching and example of the principles in this book. It helped me be a better man, a better Christian and a better leader. Everything you are about to read truly comes from years of experience, practice, wisdom and thoroughly authentic example. Leadership truths last throughout generations, "19" will stand amongst them."

" "What would I say to my 19 year old self?" That's the question that Julian wonderfully answers as he looks back on years of being found in spheres and positions of leadership. Julian approaches the question with candour, humour, creativity and wisdom.
So, what would I say to the 19 year old Paul Benger? Read a book called 19...start there.
I highly recommend this book to you whatever your age and in whatever place you find yourself. "
Lead Pastor, IKON CHURCH, UK
"This book focuses on the central, but often overlooked, truth that leadership is a journey. When we commit to the journey, our leadership develops into a special gift, one worthy of serving others. This book will inspire young leaders on their own leadership journey to lead better and stay the path."
