I recently attended the book release party for this book. I was there more for networking as I didn't recognize Lisa Nichols' name as someone who was involved with The Secret (which I've read), nor did I know any of the other authors. Nichols was an excellent speaker, and her presentation influenced me to buy a copy, but I haven't been inspired much since then by this book. I'm about halfway through reading it and I'm forcing myself to finish simply because I would hate to miss (or be) a brilliant author stuck at the back of the book that didn't get read simply because of unfortunate placement.

Each chapter is written by a different author, and they tell their individual stories in approximately 4-6 pages. The throughline they share is having had an extraordinary experience, and it seems they were all students in Nichols' writing seminar. So far, the only author whose story I was truly interested in was Skyler Madison. Her tale of internet love and almost falling into a very expensive trap stood out because her writing very plainly says she refuses to be a victim despite her experience. Good on her! That is energy I can relate to. (I was not surprised to find that she invented the Nirvana Diet - healthy body, healthy mind). Personally, I prefer a story of someone who has truly moved on from their circumstance, and can view (and therefore write) about it objectively.

The opposite seems to be true for the rest of the tales I've made it through. I still hear/feel the victim in the other authors' voices, even though they claim to have risen above their troubles (hence the "unbreakable spirit" theme). I don't say this to belittle their episodes, but to offer constructive criticism in noting that I can feel the difference of where they're coming from in their writing.

So many times I've been disappointed with collaborative books, but this one truly was difficult to put down. The stories are brief yet intense, courageous, and boldly revealing. I learned a lot about faith, perseverance, and the power of never giving up. "The Unbreakable Spirit ...Rising Above the Impossible" is a complete inspiration!

There are a number of stories of people in this book that faced obstacles or unfortunate events in their life. All are overcommers and their stories are very inspiring. It is well written and easy to read.

Though there were inspiring stories, I was hoping for something actually written by Lisa Nichols. All that Lisa wrote was the introduction and conclusion; all the stories were written by other people.

The beauty of Unbreakable Spirit rests with the people - those who have encountered darkness and yet have risen above their circumstances. Quite emotional and inspiring stories. Although the format of the book and the sheer volume of stories does dilute the overall impact, these stories are worth telling, and indeed may help others seeking comfort, camaraderie, and inspiration. Well done to those who participated in this anthology for your courage and willingness to let go, move onward, and help those in similar circumstances.

There are many times in life when we feel like we want to give up, times are too hard, things are never picking up, finances are holding you down, no one seems to be on your side, your spouse speaks ill of you, your boss shows no respect, your teachers told you that you never going to make it, or you have been told that you have a life threatening disease. When you are feeling like the only thing left to do is give up, take a minute and open this book. It has amazing stories of women who have overcome various obstacles and have succeeded in achieving their goals. They did not let circumstances or others determine their fate in life. These stories inspire success. They show you that you should never allow ANYONE OR ANYTHING BREAK YOUR SPIRIT. Thanks to all the contributors of this book for showing me, just when I thought I couldn't take it anymore, that I CAN and I WILL make it!!!

Each chapter in this book gave me strength to live an empowered life. It taught me that everyone's 'rock bottom' can be different, but it's truly not how you fall but how you get back up, and get back up they did! The stories in this book will deepen your own perspective as well as show you that no matter what your circumstance, we're ALL capable of miraculous things.
