Nick Vujicic

I just realized why I have been avoiding bookstores — I spend way too much on books. 😦 I tried going electronic but it doesn’t seem satisfying reading that way.

And you cannot imagine how difficult it was to get tickets!  I was one of the lucky few who got tickets for free through terrific connections (Thanks Ate Tina Peiji!). BUT our family had to leave for Bangkok then (so had to give the tickets to friends). 😦 So had to settle for the videos of the event instead.

Back to the books — so when I visited the bookstore, I found a couple of his books in English! YES! This Limitless book costs:

Can you believe this? Just around 11 USD for all 3 books!!!

Oh and Nick Vujicic’s book, Unstoppable, is also available but it would cost me 15 USD more! *sigh* Now, I wish I know how to read Vietnamese!

    The large public events, featuring Nick’s motivational talks, were very powerful in themselves. Who better to talk about overcoming obstacles than a man with no arms and no legs? Nick has learned to swim, surf, and skydive, is married to a beautiful woman and has a son, has traveled to speak in 44 countries, has authored best-selling books and is the epitome of purpose, joy and gratefulness.
