Chuck Norris, a true good guy in the martial arts world, has written another book about his life. While his first book, "Secrets of My Inner Strength", co-wriiten by Joe Hyamms covers some of the same material here, this book goes a little farther because, well, Chuck is a little older and many events in the last 15 years have occur to tell a little bit of a different story.
The last Bio was written better from an entertainment point of view- mostly because Joe Hyamms is a great writer, but this book is a little less self congratulory. Here Chuck admits his affair on his first wife in the 60's that produced a child, his divorce with Dianne, and his "living in sin" before marrying his current wife. He admits his falleness as a fallen man, but also his re-newed faith in Christ in his journey to a more fulfilled life.
The martial arts fan still learns much about his early martial arts training in Tang Soo Do while stationed in South Korea as a Security Policeman (of which I was also for 13 years, his early struggels in operating a dogo and tournament competition to enterng the film world and the Vietnam war and his family.
The writing is a little light at times, but he hit his target audience just right. For those who are looking for a more in-depth look at his martial arts film career, you may be disappointed and I agree that since much of his life is ceneter around his celebrity, he could have added another chapter discussing his films more in-depth (of wehich his other book did and therefore, he may not felt a need to do so). He talks about friends Bruce Lee and Bob Wall, his sons Mike and Eric, his new children, being a father husband and friend. An enjoyable read.
