On a seemingly ordinary day, 17-year-old Lia Haddock hears news that will change her life forever: 300 men, women, and children living at a research facility in Limetown, Tennessee, have disappeared without a trace. Among the missing is Emile Haddock, Lia’s uncle. What happened to the people of Limetown? It’s all anyone can talk about. Except Lia’s parents, who refuse to discuss what might have happened there. They refuse, even, to discuss anything to do with Emile.

The story began with two compelling protagonists. Their separate storylines more and more obviously converging as the chapters unfolded. Unfortunately, by the end of the “story”, both protagonists evolved into such unlikeable, self-centered, angsty caricatures that I was praying for this torture to, mercifully, terminate. The story of a mysterious human research facility never came together. Lives destroyed all around by ridiculously young smart-asses for no apparent or ever truly revealed purpose. A cheery holiday read, eh? Do yourself a favor. Read ANYTHING else. This was among the worst dreck I’ve ever endured on audible. A lot of people thought this was good. I am truly baffled as to why. If you choose to ignore this and go with the prevailing 4.5 star rating, remember I warned you...

True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Excellent leadership manual. No one could live up to level 5 expectations but the world would be great place if enough people tried. Practical guide to the principles that not only make great leaders but, more importantly, make great human beings. Must read for any student of leadership.

Don't miss the example of John Wooden as the quintessential Level 5 leader

What about John C. Maxwell’s performance did you like?

Clearly believes what he says

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Best to listen slowly and take notes.
