    In 2007, Chrissie Wellington shocked the triathlon world by winning the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. As a newcomer and a complete unknown to the press, Chrissie's win shook up the sport. A Life without Limits is the story of her rise to the top, a journey that has taken her around the world, from a childhood in England, to the mountains of Nepal, to the oceans of New Zealand, to the trails of Argentina, and finally, across the finish line. A Life without Limits reveals the heart behind her success.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    Story

    Outliers made me think about my own past. He makes some good points about how certain systems we have in society effect us more than we realize. For instance, the location of our schooling and the age cut off dates when we began school might have caused a beneficial trend or the opposite in our life. These little advantages help to shape our growth within these systems more that we might realize. On the surface these truths may seem obvious but he goes into some detail about how it all plays out and that's pretty interesting.

    Chely Wright, singer, songwriter, country music star, writes in this moving and telling memoir about her life, growing up in Kansas City, the youngest of three children, making up her mind at a young age to become a country music star, making a pact with God - to keep her "sinning" to a minimum if he'd just get her to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. . .

    Story

    Living a secret life for so long was hell for Chely. She really lets you in on all the twists and turns along the way and how it almost led to suicide, literally. I was absolutely amazed at her honesty and courage to share it with the world. I think her story has really made some people think very hard and to review their core beliefs about gays. This is an amazing and important story!!!

  • Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went from Street Corner to Corner Office

    Some people think Jay-Z is just another rapper. Others see him as just another celebrity/mega-star. The reality is, no matter what you think Jay-Z is, he is first and foremost a business. And as much as Martha Stewart or Oprah, he has turned himself into a lifestyle. This audiobook explains just how Jay-Z propelled himself from the bleak streets of Brooklyn to the heights of the business world.

    Story

    I listened without knowing anything about him except that he is a famous rapper and it seemed like he was respected. This book outlines his business mind and how he has used it over the years to be #1 in everything he does. Even his music is only a means to an end to be #1 in his venture to rise to the top of the business world. Unfortunately his story seemed to be without heart and the people that talk about him describe him as wanting nothing more than money and power. I need to do more research if I am to understand him as a human being. Still, it is and interesting book to listen to because you learn about the world of hip hop music and it's culture via his journey in helping to shape it!!!
