Publisher Comments:

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.

 

But how does that happen?  In Unstoppable Nick addresses adversity and difficult circumstances that many people face today, including:  

 

·         Personal crises

·         Relationship issues

·         Career and job challenges

·         Health and disability concerns

·         Self-destructive thoughts, emotions, and addictions

·         Bullying, persecution, cruelty, and intolerance

·         Balance in body, mind, heart, and spirit  

·         Service to others

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?

Emma Engel, December 9, 2012 (view all comments by Emma Engel)
Unstoppable is the sort of book that’s hard to review. It’s tempting to just say, “You really need to go read this book,” and leave it at that, trusting the book to speak for itself. But of course, the point of a review is to encourage the reader to try the book in the first place, and after that, it’s always up to the story.

The trouble I have with many non-fiction inspirational books is their tendency to offer formulas or blueprints for how to succeed. And if you disagree with one point, or one step doesn’t apply to you, the rest of the information can seem equally invalid. Rather than take this approach, Mr. Vujicic takes a very conversational approach. He tells stories of problems he’s faced and questions he’s struggled with, and he shares what helped him. At that point, it’s up to the reader whether the book is an amazingly inspiring story, or a source of inspiration.

You might think from the cover that the focus of the book is overcoming the obstacle of living without arms and legs, but most of book focused on much more mundane issues. Handling failure, overcoming depressions, coping with bullying, dealing with financial trouble, and falling in love are just a few, and Mr. Vujicic weave his own stories through the big picture issues with humor and humility. His constant conclusion that the answers lay with God and a relationship with Him never came across as trite. Rather, they seemed a gift.

Some people possess the rare ability to make themselves completely vulnerable to others. Telling stories about their lives and their trials isn’t egoistical, it is an offering. It gives us a chance to learn from them and since they have no way of knowing what God can use, they give it all. One person might take comfort in the fact that another person has overcome childhood bullying. Another might be consoled that moments of doubt aren’t signs of a weak faith. Mr. Vujicic is one of the people who can extend this grace, and I would encourage you to give Unstoppable a try. You have no idea what might be waiting.
