Description: Being unstoppable is about believing and achieving. It’s about having faith in yourself, your talents and your purpose and, most of all, in God’s great love and His divine plan for your life.

Millions around the world recognize the smiling face and inspirational message of Nick Vujicic.  Despite being born without arms or legs, Nick’s challenges have not kept him from enjoying great adventures, a fulfilling and meaningful career, and loving relationships.  Nick has overcome trials and hardships by focusing on the promises that he was created for a unique and specific purpose, that his life has value and is a gift to others, and that no matter the despair and hard times in life, God is always present. Nick credits his success in life to the power that is unleashed when faith takes action.
Through stories from his own life and the experiences of many others, Nick explains how anyone wanting a “ridiculously good life” can respond to these issues and more to become unstoppable. What’s standing in your way?  Are you ready to become unstoppable?

I have heard a lot about Nick Vujicic over the past two years. I have seen a couple amazing and inspiring interviews with him and was excited about getting to read his book.

I have to say that I was disappointed in this book. Nick Vujicic is such a dynamic speaker, the book fell short of his style. He touched on many topics in the book, but didn’t seem to have a common thread to pull them together. At times it read like a personal narrative, at others like a inspirational book, and yet others a call for action without anything that made it flow well together.

Another thing that was annoying at toward the beginning is over use of the word I. If this book had been my introduction to Nick, I would have to think he was very prideful. As it is, I think he just overused the word.

This book wasn’t all bad. I don’t think you can come away from reading about, watching, or listening to; Nick’s life without being inspired by his attitude. Choosing to live a full life despite his handicaps is an encouragement to all of us. Reading this makes you realize that there are no excuses for us. We should be out living our lives on fire for God.

I also appreciated his honesty about the ups and downs of his life. Too often people with ministries feel they have to appear perfect, making the rest of us feel like we can never measure up.

Overall this was a fine one time read and I would be willing to read his other book and see if that one is better.

I received this book from WaterBrook Press in exchange for my honest review.  I was under no obligation to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
