Number-one New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell´s latest book will enhance the lives of leaders, professionals, and anyone who wants to achieve success and personal growth. 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? In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity, and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these capacities and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identify, grow, and apply your critical capacities. Once you´ve blown the cap off your capacities, you´ll find yourself more successful - and fulfilled - in your daily life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Sorensen.

From Understanding Poverty to Developing Human Capacity details how schools, churches, courts, businesses, and communities can build resources for people in poverty. With nine articles written by Dr. Payne, along with two co-written with her colleague, Philip DeVol, these writings cover the gamut of Dr. Payne´s efforts in dealing with poverty-related issues. Now educators of all levels, clergy, community leaders, business professionals, and others are better positioned to help raise achievement, grow resources, and aid in the personal and professional development of everyone they work with. 1.

In the early years of the 20th century, restorative waters are a popular health draw for many. Healing Sands Sanitarium, northwest of Hoquiam, Washington, is located on the sandy edge of the Pacific Ocean and is famous for its restorative rest cure, fermented diets, and Dr. Hornsby’s electrotherapeutics. No one has ever died at Healing Sands - until now. When Benjamin Bradshaw, a professor at the University of Washington and a specialist in electricity, is summoned to investigate, he immediately knows that this death was no accident. The only clue to foul play is an obvious one to him but will seem as insubstantial as smoke to anyone other than an electrical engineer. Suspects are limited to a handful whose lives - and lies - must be exhumed and examined. A sinister tale emerges as deep undercurrents turn personal, provoking Bradshaw to make a decision about the woman he loves. And then an everyday object provides the key, alerting Bradshaw that one among them is a walking dead man and that another possesses the capacity for murder. 1. Language: English.

Home is where the heart is. Detective Sergeant Chase Barrington has never forgotten his high school sweetheart. He and Josie Munro planned to marry as soon as she graduated, but fate stepped in and Chase made the painful decision to end it. Unable to find the courage to tell her the truth, he left town without a word of explanation. A decade after graduating high school, Doctor Josie Munro, child psychologist, has recently returned to her hometown. When she´s appointed by the court to provide a report on a child´s capacity to stand trial for murder, it´s inevitable that she runs into the lead detective on the case. Unaware of the real reason why Chase ended their relationship, her anger and grief from all those years ago immediately rise to the surface. Being a consummate professional, she has no choice but to complete the task she´s been given, but she´s determined to keep Chase at a distance and to get the job over with as quickly as possible. As Josie gets to know the child through therapy sessions, she´s torn between doing what the law requires of her against what her heart knows is right. She´s also conflicted over her feelings for Chase. She wants to hate him, but she can´t. Will she follow her head or her heart? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aiden Snow.

Choose a tribe. Watch your back. And don’t stop running. Filled with thrilling adventure and romance, The Forsaken is praised by EntertainmentWeekly.com as ´´a fast-paced novel [that] you’ll get sucked into. You just can’t seem to put [it] down.´´ As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the US, and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet - having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help standing out when she fails a test that all 16-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to the wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up. The life expectancy of prisoners on the wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and a charismatic warrior named Liam concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway. 1.

Expert Book Reviews presents a comprehensive review, analysis and plot summary of Khaled Hosseini´s novel And the Mountains Echoed. This is an epic tale set in the mold of Doctor Zhivago, in which the lives of the characters are determined, often tragically, by great historical circumstances and events that they are powerless to control. Khaled Hosseini´s story tells of a little Afghan girl´s unlikely journey with her family. And the Mountains Echoed is a love story of a different kind. Pari, as she is named, is loved by her older brother beyond words. When she is torn from him and her family at the tender age of three, the stage is set for the suspense that will last as long as the story: will they ever meet again? No amount of factual history can give as deep and vivid a sense of the reality of Afghanistan in the last seventy years as this story gives. Likewise, no mere reporting or film documentary can give as lucid an account of the cruel decisions forced on people living on the verge of destitution, of the nuances and characteristics of such an ancient, complex and reactionary, but proud country as Afghanistan. It´s no wonder that empires, past and present, floundered in their attempts to conquer her. As it was for Hosseini´s The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, Afghanistan is just the setting, the background, for a profound exploration of the human soul, its capacity for good and evil, paradoxically often at the same time and by the same person. 1.
