Jimmie Aussapile, Lovina Marcou, and Heck Sinclair are members of a secret society dedicated to protecting those who travel America's highways from the monsters, both supernatural and mundane, that lurk in the darkness just beyond your headlights. They are the Brotherhood of the Wheel. At home in Lenoir, North Carolina, Jimmie and his squire Heck find themselves drawn into an all-out war between two competing biker gangs. One is led by a rival biker in possession of new found supernatural allies, and the other is an all-female werewolf pack.

In this must-listen book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, students, and businesspeople - both seasoned and new - that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called "grit". Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur "genius" Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success.

Compelling and inspirational book that imparts a lot of information on how success can be gotten through passion and perseverance with or without innate talent. Cleary brings up anywhere that more study is needed rather that misleading the audience. Also gives clear steps and techniques to begin achieving goals. Many case studies and examples of grtty success stories and the mindset and methods used by these people from all walks of life.

I think some of the stories were very good. Yet others were not. The ones that were good more than make up for the ones that are not and this book is certainly worth its price.

Would you listen to For Honor We Stand again? Why?

I would listen to it again because it was very enjoyable and the performance by Ray Chase was also great.

Any additional comments?

If anyone has ever read any of the Aubrey Maturin series or seen and enjoyed Master and Commander Far Side of the World, they would also enjoy this. Great pacing, plot, character development, and I'll definitely be listening to this one and the first book in the series. My only disappointment in listening to it was that at the time I thought there had already been several more books written in the series and I would have spaced out the listening more. Instead I blew through it in 2 days and now will have to wait for the sequels.
