I noticed the book had been tagged "religious/inspirational" after I'd downloaded it. I thought "well, alright, the story of a limbless guy qualifies as 'inspirational' to me." Early on it's revealed that Nick comes from an evangelical background, becoming an actu ...more
Throughout the book he uses examples from his own life and those he has come into contact with to show people how by changing your attitude, helping other ...more
Three reviews from our CALEB reviewers:
If Nick Vujicic’s autobiography Life Without Limits was required reading for every secondary school student I believe that the suicide rate for young people would plummet. If it could be made compulsory reading for every adult I believe the incidence of depression would also drop dramatically. If Life Without Limitswere mandatory reading for all new parents I believe both parents and children would benefit.
Ši knyga išmokė mane pradėti mąstyti teigiamai. Pavyzdžiui, kai kita syki kalbėsiu prieš auditorija, nebegalvosiu, kad galiu užmiršti kalba ir klausytojai mane isjuoks. Galvosiu teigiamai ir žinosiu, kad pasiruoštos kalbos aš nepamiršiu ir ...more

Nick includes lots of personal anecdotes plus a lot of inspirational, motivating and touching stories of others which makes reading the book sort of a roller-coaster emotional ride. At times you have a great laugh at other times your grateful for what you have and sometimes you're somewhere in between.
I liked the part at the end "Action Plan" in which some questions are provided for reflection and that serve as guiding s ...more
His life maxims are encapsulated in many of the chapter titles:
If you can't get a miracle, become one.
Attitude is altitude.
He says the most powerful attitudes are:
1. an attitude of gratitude
2. an attitude of action
3. an attitude of empathy
4. an attitude of forgiveness
Nick has a crazy sense of h ...more
This book not only inspired me, but his quirky comments on his own physical appearance made me laugh and sometimes even shed a tear or two. It reminded me to never underestimate the power of making fun of yourself to lighten up, let go and have fun.
When I talk about him to people I often refer to him ...more

"If you can't get a miracle, become one." -Nick Vujicic, Life without Limits
Life Without Limits is written by Nick Vujicic himself. It's about his life and the hardships he had to go through without both arms and both limbs.
I recommend this book to mostly teenagers and adults because not only does he explain all the life lessons, hardships, how he overcame them, through his words, I as the reader, can feel the encouragements and what the ways he overcame the proble ...more
- I picked this up because I was interested in his story i.e. aspects of his life and how he's living "life without limits". Instead, this book was almost purely what I imagine his speeches may consist of
- Honestly, I skimmed sections of this because it was not engaging and there was no groundbreaking content
Some credit to Wes Smith, Vujicic's writer, who kept the tone and enthusiasm of the videos.
Nick was constantly bullied at school ...more
