Nick Vujicic has written several books about his life as a limbless man. In "Limitless" he offers the reader a devotion based upon personal experiences and the experiences of others. He prefaces the examples with a Bible verse and ends with a personal note of belief. The author touches on subjects such as enjoying life as it is, belief and trust in the existence in God, hope and the power it brings to individuals in times of stress, surrendering to God's will, disavowing negative and destructive thoughts, discarding labels that limit one's ability to hope, and listening for one's calling in life.

One of the sections which caught my eye and interest was the one on the use of the cell phone. Its message was that success comes from failure, assuming one does not dwell on the hurt of failure. Another practical lesson was that of preparing for new experiences. Some of the lessons/devotions are applicable to the general population while others are more specific to those with special needs. The overall approach is that, with trust in God and God's will for any human being, life is simply a matter of living out the plan while making the best of the gifts which remain despite omissions or disappointments. Although I'm not sure whether the wisdom in this book cannot be found in countless other inspirational books, the focus on the positive is a delight and the author is obviously an inspiration to the masses in general.
