Publisher's Summary

We all face obstacles. Whether physical, spiritual, emotional, or financial, we are all working to overcome a roadblock ahead of us. When Shay Eskew’s roadblock - a splash of gasoline and a lit match that set his body ablaze - came as a child, he had the choice to either succumb to his injuries or to rise above them. 

In What the Fire Ignited: How Life’s Worst Helped Me Achieve My Best, Shay shares the trials and tribulations he was forced to face while recovering from his burns and reclaiming his life as an athlete. Despite being told to give up on sports, Shay began training for and competing in IRONMAN Triathlons. By sharing his story, Shay hopes to help those struggling with life to realize the greatest tragedies are often our greatest blessings if we have the faith to stay the course. 

We are all facing something; we all have the odds stacked against us in some way. In What the Fire Ignited, listeners should take comfort in knowing others have been there and not only survived, but thrived.

Join the Ride in This Remarkable, Must-Read Story

Shay Eskew's personal story is a gem filled with grit, determination, setbacks, triumphs, positivity, faith, and even some light humor mixed in. Yes, it is all in there. The book provides an affirmative kick-in-the-pants that you can succeed at your goals despite sometimes incredible odds and obstacles. While it is inherently motivational (if you are seeking that), it worth a read simply because it is a truly remarkable story. The author's narration is solid and his story maintains good momentum throughout. Sometimes you feel as if you are right beside him during some of his grueling IRONMAN races, as well as other experiences. If you are even slightly considering this book, definitely take the plunge and get it. It is worth your time. The performance for the audio book is also a great match for the style and topic of the book.
