Nick Vujicic and his story about life without arms and legs is incredible and inspiring! He was born without any limbs, the medical condition phocamelia. His parents had no idea, despite two ultrasounds and knowing that he was a boy. Understandably his parents were utterly shocked and they all had to learn to live with a severe disability. Ultimately he has learned to do so many things you wouldn’t think he could – independently get ready for the day, swim, surf and travel as a renowned speaker.
His story takes you through his growing up years while relating lessons and principles he has learned from living (actively) with a disability. He does more than a lot of people with all their limbs! Each chapter is clear in it’s message that living is overcoming obstacles and pursuing God. He writes on a relational level and translates his extreme circumstances to usable lessons for any person. He speaks motivationally and with a self depreciating sense of humor.
The book is an easy read with lots of wisdom written in an easily applicable format.
