MY REVIEW: If you need to be inspired, this is the book for you. Life Without Limits is one of the most inspirational books you will ever read. I can't say it is the most inspirational book you will ever read. That would be silly. I have no way of knowing. But I can say, without reservation, that this book is one of the most inspirational you will ever read. So again, if you are looking for inspiration--get this book. Nick tells the story of his physical disabilities and the emotional battle he endured trying to deal with them as a child, a teen, and a young adult. He shares how his faith in God has been his central source of strength and explains that once he found his own sense of purpose--inspiring others to make their lives and the world better--he found the confidence to build a rewarding and productive life without limits. Nick offers practical advice for realizing a life of fulfillment and happiness by building trust in others, developing supportive relationships and gaining strength for the journey. Life Without Limits is filled with inspiring stories not only from Nick's life and experiences but from many others around the world. You know I'm going to say it so I might as well get on with it: Nick's faith in God is the thing that inspires me the most. How easy it would have been for him to have railed against God and refused to believe in God's goodness. But he didn't! He believes in God. Trusts God. And lives his life for Him!
