Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic--Review

Title: Unstoppable
Author: Nick Vujicic
Series: (None)
Pages: 237
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
Genre: Non-fiction, Inspirational
My Rating: 5 Stars (as a book in general); 4 Stars (If I go by my biased-ness...I don't really like non-fiction...)

Summary/Description: Nick Vujicic was born with out arms or legs. As a young child, he wondered what his purpose in life could be and wondered if God really loved him. Now, he sees that God has a BIG plan for his life, and nothing can get in the way. In Nick's second book, he tells us how to overcome obstacles in life such as challenges in relationships, jobs, heath, addictions, bullying, and other issues people face. This book encourages the reader to face the challenges life throws at us and become unstoppable.

My thoughts: Well, first, please know that I don't normally read non-fiction, but I really wanted to review this book because I find Nick's story so inspiring. In today's society, people face so many different challenges. Bullying, for example, isn't just in school anymore. It's at work, and on the internet, too. And so many people face disease and disability. Nick is a great person to address these issues and more since he is disabled himself. Unstoppable is so encouraging and really shows you that nothing is impossible with God and no matter how terrible your situation is, there is always a way out and a way to encourage others with your experiences. This book not only told Nick's story, but also other people-young and old-who had gone through the trials that were being described. There were quite a few mentions of human trafficing and slavery. But that is the only thing that I might have a problem with in this book (And also the time when he mentioned not calling someone "mummy"...I practically freaked out, but that's just my own personal issue :P )
