Book Review- Limitless by Nick Vujicic

Title: Limitless
Subtitle: Devotions for a Ridiculously Good Life
Author: Nick Vujicic
Genre: Devotional/Inspirational

You just have to look at the cover to get excited about this book!  You might look at it and ask yourself, "How is that man able to smile so brightly when he is missing his arms and legs?"  You will want to read this book and find out what's the secret.  

Nick Vujicic was born without any of his limbs- no arms and no legs!  His parents had no idea that their son was missing his limbs until the moment he was born.  After the initial shock, Nick's parents raised Nick along with his two siblings and treated him the same as his siblings.  They  did not expect less of him.   They did not treat him as a disabled person.

Nick went through a difficult time as a teenager.  I am sure you can all relate to those challenging and awkward teen years!   I can't even begin to imagine how difficult those years were for him!  In this book, he overcame his despair with God's help.  He knows that his life has meaning and that God does not make mistakes.  God created Nick this way and Nick understands his purpose.
You will find this book inspirational as Nick openly discusses the struggles in his life and how he overcame them.  He will encourage you to believe that anything is possible with God!  Nick's message is strong and true!

I recommend this book to everyone! There is not a person out there that hasn't experienced despair and struggle.  Everyone can learn from Nick's example!  

There are a few, specific groups that I think would especially benefit from reading this book:

The first would be teens and young adults.  Nick speaks candidly about the struggles he experienced as a teen and how his despair led him to attempt suicide.  I think that every teen would benefit from Nick's example and life story.  I think his story would help any teen that is struggling with self esteem acontemplating taking their own life.  

The second would be parents of a disabled child.  It must be heart breaking and challenging to have a child with a disability.  This book would help those parents to see past their child's disability and look for their child's purpose and gifts.    Nick's parents are a shining example of a positive way to raise a disabled child.

If I could give more than 5 stars to this book I would!

  1. Thanks for the review! I watched a short movie about Nick and even that little segment of his testimony moved me to tears. I've thought about grabbing his book... I should just do it! :)
