Being unstoppable is about believing and achieving. It’s about having faith in yourself, your talents and your purpose and, most of all, in God’s great love and His divine plan for your life.

My Review:   
I would first like to say that this book was a very encouraging type of book. And author Nick Vujicic is an amazing author. 

I did enjoy reading how he overcome many many obstacles in his life time. But I will have to say that it is not my type of book and that I had a bit of a time reading it. 

I am not going to get into the book. The synopsis really tells alot about it, so I do not want to give away anything else. 

And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:

Four Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I did receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.
