Definitely yes! I'd recommend this book because Nick Vojicic's story was unusually inspiring to me. I heard about it thru my 12 yr old son who couldn't wait to tell me about this cool guy he learned about at school! So I'd love to spread this guy's story the same way to my family/ friends. Nick uses great humor & charisma (through his own narration) along with extreme openness & trust, letting the audience in on his greatest fears & lowest moments of despair. Therefore, he kept my attention start to finish. I could hear his raw emotion about his life & past. He has such determination to reach his goals, & living for God & for others rather than himself....... without overdoing the religious parts/ bible quotes, & without judging others. He related his experiences to everyone's real life problems, & not just how it relates to him. He brought me to tears a few times which is rare:)
Nick Vujicic........ Becuse I can't imagine handling his situation with such a great attitude. & after hearing his story, I think that more now, than ever, maybe regular people have great strengths deep down which we're not necessarily aware of..... yet. (probably given to us somehow by God)
This is an easy question...... Nick's shows his true-self all through this book & it shows constantly in his voice. He doesn't hold back, & even broke down in one chapter, but kept talking right thru it.
Absolutely yes, when he talked about his thoughts of suicide.
Great book, awesome narration & message for all people of all cultures & religions.
Maybe young, very simple people may enjoy this book.... I really don't know.
He just rambles on & on..... some angry, simple-minded ranting, as well. I shouldn't judge the whole book, as I couldn't get beyond the first few chapters.
Very dry, almost monotone voice
I don't know. I couldn't finish it.
Very disappointed, as I love many personal accounts of the paranormal/spiritual
Yes I'd love to listen to it again, especially with others (like with my family). Jackson holds nothing back about his painful life, full of intense successes & failure. He is hyper sensitive to life's everyday hardships, & seems to make life choices that challenge his soul in the most heartbreaking areas. His struggles (many which are self-inflicted) apply to painful truths, & his determination to find the answers, then come to peace with them, then pass it on! Most of us can relate to his life in some way. He's bruuuuuuutally honest about his every emotion & opinion, & inspired me to think more of others, & to consider life from a very harsh, different, & more open-minded perspective.
To me, his story is more in the genre of books dealing with human psychology & addiction.
His emotion is so incredibly intense. He grabs your attention immediately & never lets it go...... Jackson exposes his deepest pains & determination to find peace within himself, & his need to pass it on to others, including cats of course! He shares all of this with an AWESOME SENSE OF HUMOR! I also appreciated his risk in using strong language throughout, as it showed me that he is a real person with a great need to express himself with his truths, and desire to share his deep compassion for humans & animals, esp cats!
YES...... From the start to finish, I can't stress enough the power this audio book had on me: LAUGH, CRY, LAUGH, CRY........
I'm not even a cat-person. I bond more with dogs. But his show show "My Cat from Hell" got my family hooked! I'd highly recommend this book to anyone with a truth-seeking nature,love for animals, & appreciation for real humor.
Something else with interesting true story/ stories or an unusual biography.
I suppose the narration quality was fine, so yes:)
Marylin Manson, he already looks so freaky that anything about him doesn't come as a surprise.
The story about the combine (or tractor) demolition derby night was where I started having doubts about this book, & losing my focus. The author seemed to ramble on wayy too much with details for my taste.
Yes I'd listen again to help recall some of the important points about various relaxation techniques to induce obes, as well as how to control my spiritual self once I come out.
I loved that he covered so much unknown territory. The most fascinating parts were the limitless freedom & knowledge we can access out of our physical bodies, as well as the spiritual control we have, & that nothing can harm us there.
My favorite part was probably where he talks about our ability to explore our complete present life's history from any perspective, as well as our past lives!
My most extreme reaction to this book was that it explained so many useful, creative &, unexpected ways to use this ability. It actually made me much more determined to pursue access this spiritual world, which I haven't been able to do on a conscious level yet. (this book made my current INability much more frustrating lol)
This book contains many valuable tips I never would have thought of. So it's worth listening to again!:)) BUT his hypnosis chapters did NOTHING to help me. It's probably my own fault for having such a scattered mind & poor relaxation habits.
Firstly, the TITLE is completely misleading. This book was much more about the bible & accepting Jesus Christ, than haunting demons, possessions, & Satan.. Secondly, It just plain was not believable. The first chapter really kept my interest & was very intriguing. Then it just got to be ridiculous...... the writer's actions & reactions just didn't follow human nature. I was looking for a good, scary, TRUE story about demons, hauntings, or possession, where good probably triumphs over evil, perhaps with a mention of Jesus here & there..... not a Bible lesson.
No, this book has not turned me off to others in this genre. I would take anoother chance. This topic is very interesting & believable to me.
Too many religious references, & very seemed to be very contrived.
It was unpredictable at times...... just too fake & religious.
Don't waste your time unless you're looking for a religious type read.
