We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive as off limits rather than what's really possible. Could it be that many of us have failed to expand our potential because we have allowed what we perceive as capacity to define us? What if our limits are not really our limits?

John C. Maxwell is a great author and much of his content is worth reading. Unfortunately, the narrator read most of the sentences of the chapters I listened to with uptalk. It became very frustrating and distracting to the content I was trying learn. Since I tend to listen to my audiobooks over and over, I am returning this book rather than put up with a unpleasant reader.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life. But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow's best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday.

My daughter is fan of the author, so on her recomendation I picked up this book to listen to. The premise is undeniably interesting. However I felt that the book went terribly dark and stayed there. In contrast to my current favorite fiction book World War Z, The leads characters seemed to experience events occuring to them, but did not grow or mature or deveolp as did the characters in WWZ. I also didn't relate well to the struggle of the main characters. I can't fault the author's skill, but I am not likely to pick up any other of his writings.
