Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Zen advice from a martial arts expert-and star of TV's Walker, Texas Ranger.
Wes Lukowsky
Chuck Norris, martial-arts movie hero and the star of television's "Walker, Texas Ranger", offers his thoughts on martial-arts training and the Zen philosophy behind the kicks and punches. In his own life, Norris has found that applying Zen helped him succeed in both business and acting. The discipline and structure of martial-arts training, he argues, can provide one with focus, self-confidence, and determination. Norris peppers his discourse with illustrative anecdotes, such as the story of the wounded marine who--despite the loss of both legs--studied martial arts under a visionary master and learned to use his wheelchair as a weapon. Norris also champions Zen as a path to self-awareness whereby followers learn how to reward, motivate, and respect themselves. One could easily dismiss this book as a superficial presentation of a complex philosophy by a pretentious showbiz dilettante, but that would be an error. View it rather as a primer presented sincerely by a famous practitioner. Norris' fame may help him connect with younger readers, who are often most in need of his message.
