Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Karate champion and movie star Norris discusses his secrets of inner strength with the aid of show-biz biographer Hyams (Humphrey Bogart, Judy Garland et al.). Norris's formula consists primarily of positive thinking and visualizing in advance what will take place next, with added bits of advice on more specific subjects like dealing with failure and advancing beyond conceived limitations. The tone is didactic, and readers will find that the recommendations have the flavor of copy-book maxims. Further, the recapping of the plots of many of the star's films becomes tedious. Teenagers, however, may be taken with Norris's stated goal of offering a positive role model. Photos not seen by PW. (January 28)
Library Journal
Karate champion turned movie star Norris has written his autobiography and includes in it his advice for thinking positively. From humble origins and in spite of considerable family problems, Norris rose to be a karate champion. Although admittedly not naturally athletic, his preparation and mental attitude carried him to the top of karate, somewhat before its popularity boomed. When he turned to acting, he applied himself diligently, and many of his films have been box-office hits. At the end of each chapter he has one or more sentences on his personal philosophy. Appended are his ethics code, his karate tournament achievements, and a filmography. Recommended. David L. Mills, Brooklyn P.L., New York

    The backstage Chuck!

    This autobiography traces Chuck's roots to a dysfunctional family and later to his studying Tang Soo Do while in the Air Force in Korea. You also get an appreciation from his forthrightness in that martial arts prowess did not come easy to him. Chuck describes his half-Indian ancestry and little anecdotes about things that happened while making some of his best films. If you see Chuck now at age 61, it is amazing the shape he is in. I don't know if I could keep up with him at half his age.

    The lesser known side of Chuck Norris

    This autobio discusses Chuck's beginnings with a dysfunctional family and an alcoholic father and on to his days with the US Airforce in Korea, where he began his studies in Tang Soo Do.Surprisingly, he did not pick up the Tang soo do very quickly and his mastery of it is a tribute to his dedication and perseverance.Norris was the first to introduce a well-known technique in Korea to the US: the spinning back kick.Norris had an outstanding record in tournament karate and served on the US Karate team with the likes of Mike Stone ,Joe Lewis, and Skipper Mullins. Norris also studied Judo and has a Cherokee ancestry.
