Xuyên suốt cuốn sách là những câu chuyện về những con người bình thường nhưng phi thường vì chính ý chí của họ.
Mình đặc biệt ấn tượng câu chuyện của Eula Hall,người đã không quản khó khăn, cống hiến hết mình cho xã hội và những người dân thông qua phòng khám Mud Creek. Nhờ câu chuyện đó mình càng thêm vững lòng vì biết có những người ngoài kia sẵn sàng hy sinh và cho đi rất nhiều.

I thought this was a very solid book.
Personally, for my taste it was a little "lofty" and not as practical, but nonetheless packed w great solid examples of individuals that have managed to overcome insurmountable ods to achieve success

I absolutely LOVED this inspirational book! It's one of those motivational books with life-changing true life stories in which you feel like you could run a marathon by the time you are done.

The 45 remarkable true life stories were demonstrations of a group of individuals who were determined to make a positive difference in this world. They didn't sit back and take no for an answer. Instead, they persevered through horrendous hardships to overcome unfathomable obstacles.

Unstoppable was EMPOWER

There's so much goodness in this book, it is a 5-star.

Due to the corrosive effect that the mass/major media has on discourse in the nations of the West ( esp. America ), nearly all of these 45 accounts that Ms. Kersey covers in the seven sections of the book were unknown to me until finishing the book yesterday.
( fortunately, the mass/major media no longer has a place in the 24 hrs I'm allotted daily )

There's also an excellent short section on teaching about mastermind groups; being the co-orga

This book offers some inspiring stories in a well-organized context. Also useful was Schuller's Possibility Thinking Game (number 1-10 on a paper and brainstorm for possible solutions). Seven Characteristics of Unstoppable People: 1. Devote themselves to their true purpose, 2. Follow their heart's passion, 3. Believe in themselves and their ideas, 4. Prepare for challenges, 5. Ask for help and build a support team, 6. Seek creative solutions, 7. Persevere, no matter what the challenges.

Work hard, persevere ... and if you just happen to know rich folks who'll invest in your idea, that can't hurt either. Maybe it was the title -- the stories themselves were inspirational, but seriously? Most of these people, seems like they had connections and that paid off at the crucial moment. Well, that and when she mentions that no one is any more than 6 people from the President of the United States. Uh yeah...

An encouraging book about following your dreams. Stories of people hwo failed MANY TIMES before they were successful in their endeavors. Included specific ideas to get your "project" going and keep it going - involves having an accountability group of friends - something I would not be interested in doing that formally.

I didn't end up reading this cover to cover as I soon discovered that I am completely burnt out on 'follow your dreams, you can still succeed if you never give up' type stories. I guess I've just read so many of them in the past and am no longer that surprised by them.

I did like the bit I read about the founder of Dominoes though, so this probably is a good book if you're in the mood for it.

This book will give you a swift kick and pick me up when you read it. Each story is about overcoming huge obstacles and doing something that was once seemingly impossible. Read just one and you'll start thinking that things are indeed possible. You can achieve your dream!

I have read this great work more than once. Each story reminded me of my own greatness. I have often said when asked what is my most favorite book, my response continues to be Unstoppable by Cynthia Kersey.
