Book Description

Life Without Limits is an inspiring book by an extraordinary man. Born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic overcame his disability to live not just independently but a rich, fulfilling life, becoming a model for anyone seeking true happiness. Now an internationally successful motivational speaker, his central message is that the most important goal for anyone is to find their life’s purpose despite whatever difficulties or seemingly impossible odds stand in their way.

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. “For the longest, loneliest time, I wondered if there was anyone on earth like me, and whether there was any purpose to my life other than pain and humiliation.” 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. He encourages the reader by showing how he learned to accept what he could not control and focus instead on what he could.


“I do believe my life has no limits! I want you to feel the same way about your life, no matter what your challenges may be. As we begin our journey together, please take a moment to think about any limitations you’ve placed on your life or that you’ve allowed others to place on it. Now think about what it would be like to be free of those limitations. What would your life be if anything were possible?”
—Nick Vujicic, from Life Without Limits



Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Glancing at this book’s cover, it takes a moment to register that the smiling young man staring back has neither arms nor legs. That’s fitting, since Vujicic’s story is about how, despite extreme disabilities, he wants to be seen as a normal person. Readers might find extraordinary a better word, as they learn how Vujicic, born limbless (but with a tiny foot), lives what he calls “a ridiculously good life.” By learning to be a help and resource to others, and choosing to dwell on the positives in his life, including a supportive family and friends, he has overcome the despondency natural to a young person in his predicament and become a source of inspiration for those he meets as a speaker and those who see his videos on YouTube. Although much of his account is straightforward biography, he also devotes considerable space to sharing his faith in God and offering practical suggestions for making one’s life happier and more productive. The underlying message is, “I’m happy; why aren’t you?” That’s a pretty good question, as readers will see after only a few pages. --Ilene Cooper

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Without Limits Book Review October 30, 2010
By Amelia
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has creative resources in the back for anyone looking into
humanitarian work.
Also, it's a good resource for anyone who is struggling
and looking for answers. The author is honest and real
about pain but hopeful about it not ending there.
I recommend this book to anyone who might be considering ending
their own life or seriously struggling with having purpose.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish it was a biography! April 21, 2011
Format:Hardcover
* Nick Vujicic
* Doubleday Religion
* October 2010
* 256 pp.

Nick Vujicic has an incredible testimony-he was born with no arms and no legs, and he wholeheartedly believes God has a purpose for the way he was made. I was excited to read this book, because I wanted to hear Nick's story-to walk with him through his childhood, into his adolescent years, and up to his present life as a world-traveling speaker.

Unfortunately, Nick's story was told thematically, and it was intermixed with large portions of reader-directed inspirational speaking. After a few chapters, I felt pretty frustrated by this-I just wanted Nick's story, which on its own would have provided me with boatloads of inspiration. I enjoy biographies of amazing men like Nick, and I assumed that's what I was going to get. Instead, I mostly got Nick's message, illustrated with Nick's story.

Nick's message is extremely positive. Yet, I often found myself wonderful how much of it was derived from God's Word and how much of it came from other motivational speakers that Nick has heard or befriended. Along with Nick, I believe God has made him perfectly for the purpose he has for him, and I believe Nick will continue to impact folks for as long as he lives. However, from the book I sensed a message that is still in the focusing stages-it seemed at times to jump from place to place, at times to cover ground I've heard other motivational speakers cover, and at times to repeat points made in various other places in the book.

I have a hard time saying any of that, because I love Nick Vujicic!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very inspiring and encouraging book November 20, 2010
By Mark B
Format:Hardcover
Several times as I read this book, I thought "man, I thought I had it bad!" This is a very inspiring and encouraging book. Nick tells a lot about how he learned to live with no arms or legs, and how he learned to deal with what many would view as limitations.

I am amazed at what this guy has done - and can do. He rides a surf board, swims, goes scuba diving, and other things that most people with arms and legs don't do.

Scattered throughout the pages of the book are also stories of people he met who had either disabilities or bad circumstances, yet overcame them. He is a motivational speaker, and gives a lot of advice on how to rise avove your circumstances. He is a Christian, an ordained evangelist, so he talks a lot in the book about depending on God and how God has helped him, and does help him.

I found myself to be encouraged, inspired, and convicted by reading this book. It is so easy to get overwhelmed with life, but after reading Nick's story, I realize all too often we give into our circumstances, and lose the battle.

I usually give my "read-in-one-sitting" status to a suspense type book, but this book was so interesting that I read it in one evening, and so I will bestow that status on it. I really recommend reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, it will change your life. October 26, 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is my first review on Amazon, but I felt compelled to post it. I saw Nick in person a few months ago in Salem, VA. His words, smile, laugh, and heart made me reconsider making some bad decisions in my life. I cannot express in words how much I encourage you to read this book. I can't wait until I have it in my hands. God works in strange and amazing ways and my life is testament to that. Please, please please, consider buying this book if you are in a difficult point in your life and it may seem that there is nothing positive. Nick is an amazing person and I'm sure his book will be just as amazing. <3

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration in the Midst of Disabilities June 11, 2012
Format:Paperback
My Review:

I've seen him via Youtube on Facebook, but when his book became available, I had to read it! What a powerhouse of a book! Nick Vujicic (Voy-a-chich) shares with us his many years of experience (27 years) and wisdom as he worked through his childhood, teens and early adulthood without arms and legs. For such a young man, he has much to teach us through his trials and his reliance on the Lord.

Some of the attributes he knew he needed include:

A powerful sense of purpose
Hope so strong that it cannot be diminished
Faith in God and the infinite possibilities
Love and self-acceptance
Attitude with altitude
A courageous spirit
Willingness to change
A trusting heart
Hunger for opportunities
The ability to assess risks and to laugh at life
A mission to serve others first

That's one tall order, and, no, he didn't always succeed instantly in each situation, but with the grace of God and loving, Christian parents and family, he continued on. Nick's book, Life Without Limits, will encourage you to overcome the obstacles in your own life and come out on top. He's convinced "that for every disability you have, you are blessed with more than enough ability to overcome your challenges.
