Overview

The lowdown on the toughest, sexiest, and beardiest man to ever stalk the earth

Since its emergence from the bowels of the internet, the Chuck Norris Fact has roundhouse kicked its way into the world’s consciousness with all the vim and verve of its namesake. Singing the praises of his unequaled toughness, his mighty kicking feet, his indestructible beard, his frightening virility, and his ability to stop time by thinking about pineapples, The Truth About Chuck Norris is the one book brave enough to go behind the beard and reveal the real Chuck.

Ian Spector, webmaster of the site which started the meme and survivor of a real-life encounter with Chuck himself, has selected the 400 most kick-ass facts from his library of thousands, as well as illustrations as awesome as the man himself. This death-defying volume includes such awe-inspiring observations as:
• A cobra once bit Chuck Norris’s leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
• Chuck Norris can charge a cell phone by rubbing it against his beard.
• When an episode of “Walker, Texas Ranger” aired in France, the French surrendered to Chuck Norris just to be on the safe side.

• Chuck Norris was the first person to tame a dinosaur.
• Chuck Norris once visited The Virgin Islands. Afterward, they were renamed The Islands.
• Every piece of furniture in Chuck Norris’s house is a Total Gym.

A must-have paean to the archetypical American male and a bible of all things Chuck, The Truth About Chuck Norris is easily the most important book of all time.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Chuck Norris doesn't sleep. He waits." "A cobra once bit Chuck Norris's leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died." "Under Chuck Norris's beard there is no chin, only another fist." "People say the truth hurts, but it hurts a hell of a lot more when it comes from Chuck Norris." This hilarious collection of body-hard Chuck Norris "facts" will satisfy the secretly heroic longings of every wannabe Texas Ranger.

    This is a collection of short Chuck Norris jokes.

    While some are amusing, most range from dull to offensive. In a way, this book is reminiscent of the "Gross Jokes" books.

    Overall, a lackluster read.

    Chuck Norris doesn't win poker with a full house, he wins with a full roundhouse kick. Sorry Chuck.

    Hillarious beyond belief

    This book was absolutely hillarious. Many of the claims made in this book are so ridiculous and false that a person can not help but laugh. Long live the legend of Chuck Norris.

    Chuck Norris is the man

    There are some funny Chuck Norris lines and then there are just some provocative and just plain dumb lines. I'd chuckle at a couple and just roll my eyes at others. So, I am in the middle on this book.

    Holy Chuck Norris.

    This was funny, some I heard already, some were pretty stupid, some were hilarious. I love the Full House one the best I think. If you have heard Chuck Norris this or that, this if for you.
