From the Inside Flap

Wake Up, America!

It seems like wherever you turn these days, the news is bad. Illegal immigrants are swarming over our borders. Our nation and American families are crippled by debt. We remain vulnerable to Islamist terrorist attacks. Judges ignore the Constitution and instead legislate from the bench. Faith and traditional values are under incessant assault from the media, leftist lawyers, and the liberal establishment. The core message of the Declaration of Independence--that everyone has a God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness--is under threat from liberals who deny the right to life (or even the very idea of God-given rights), and who think the answer to every problem is a government program. They think that God, if He exists, might not know best, but liberal-run government certainly does. If you're worried about the direction our country is going, you're in good company. Chuck Norris remembers a better America--an America of faith, freedom, and respect for tradition, history, and human life--and in Black Belt Patriotism he shows what we need to do to reawaken the American dream, reignite the American spirit, and give our children and grandchildren the America they deserve: an America of freedom, opportunity, and faith. In ten practical, down-to-earth chapters, Norris gets back to basics, mining the insights of our founding fathers and applying their wisdom to the problems of today: immigration, the culture wars, the war against global terrorism, national (and personal) debt, even the epidemic of obesity that is killing more Americans than terrorists do. With the optimistic, get your-hands-dirty, can-do spirit that typifies what's best about America, Chuck Norris grapples with the toughest problems facing our country and proves that they're no match for Black Belt Patriotism.

From the Back Cover

Black Belt Patriotism is my critique of what is destroying our country, and offers my solutions for rebuilding America and restoring the American dream. It's "black belt" in the sense that it is strong, resolute and to the point, like a roundhouse kick. It's "patriotic" in the sense that it recaptures the vision of America's Founding Fathers. I wrote this book in the hope that future generations of Americans can continue to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

He is also a martial arts expert and a bestselling author of numerous books including "Black Belt Patriotism" and "The Secret Power Within." Norris's nationally syndicated column appears in Human Events, Town Hall, and World Net Daily, among other outlets. Chuck and his wife Gena continue to be involved in many charitable, Christian and civic endeavors, including two trips to Iraq to support American troops, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Veterans Administration National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans, the United Way, etc. Chuck and Gena Norris are also advocates for an elective Bible education course offered now in 475 public school districts in 38 states.

Chuck and Gena and their children live on their ranch near Houston, Texas. For more information on Chuck Norris and the KICKSTART program, go to: www.chucknorris.com.

If you are a patriot, you have very likely read a number of books that are very similar.
ThorBjorn
Most people that will want to read this book, also think like Mr. Norris and myself and hope that the country will move back to the right/conservative way of thinking.
Donald Hunt
On the cover of the book, he is described as a martial arts master, actor, and political activist.

Format: Hardcover
I have been a fan of Chuck Norris for years. His early movies helped motivate me to study martial arts, and now as an instructor myself, I respect and admire the accomplishments he has achieved, and especially like how he has helped so many kids through his youth programs. It was an honor to meet Chuck Norris, his wife, and the late Howard Jackson a few years ago when he was signing copies of "Against All Odds: My Story."

I also like that Chuck Norris has firm convictions and beliefs and is not afraid to stand by them. His entry into political commentary and endorsing causes and candidates illustrates that he is not content with sitting on the sidelines, but is more than willing to stand up and be counted and voice an opinion. Some people criticize celebrities for endorsing causes or candidates, but I don't. I respect people who stand up for what they believe in and take ACTION. Regardless if you agree or disagree with Norris, you have to respect the fact that he is taking action regarding problems he sees in America.

I've been looking forward to "Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America" ever since I learned it was coming out. Being a black belt and a patriot, I love the title. But more importantly, I respect Chuck Norris and his views, not just because he is a fellow martial artist, but because he is sincere, honest, and makes a lot of sense. I've been looking forward to his insights and suggestions on how to rebuild our country and ensure the pursuit of the American Dream is available for everyone. The book was released yesterday and I left work and immediately stopped at the bookstore to pick up a copy.

I was not disappointed!

I spent the night reading "Black Belt Patriotism" and was quite impressed.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book primarily because I am a black belt in Mr. Norris' martial arts system--an international organization called United Fighting Arts Federation. I have purchased his other books that are all biographical or about martial arts. After hearing about this book, I was skeptical because Mr. Norris has never done anything like this before. I admit I didn't know what to expect, and was worried. However, I was surprised at the insight and depth of the book. It really does offer real solutions to many of the problems America is faced with today and in the future. It offers history about our Founding Fathers and the Constitution and how we, as Americans, need to get back in touch with our roots to solve problems that worry us and the book suggests many ways we can take matters into our own hands rather than depending on the government to solve all the problems. Before reading it, I expected an extremely "conservative" viewpoint and many aspects of it are, however it also leans toward an "independent" viewpoint as well. It has a large reference section and many appendices. It is a book worth reading!

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mike Robinson on January 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
Martial Arts Master Chuck Norris is more cultural leader than kickin-machine these days. Norris is a devout beleiver and motivational speaker. And in "Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America" (yes Norris' support of Mike Huckabee in 2008 was a test of his political focus and stamina as he instantly earned media respect with his public presentation and performance), he has written "a critique of what is destroying our country."

He contends that America should:
- Let freedom ring!
- Reawaken and build a positive revolution
- Follow the strategy of Christ and George Washington in fostering a productive movement
- Follow simple and dynamic solutions through the practical directions he offers.

Chuck Norris' penetrating insights are remarkable and salient; they are workable, sound, galvanizing, inventive, fruitful, motivating, and life-changing. This updated work is not just a political jeremiad forasmuch as it is a call to action to revive and reform our country: one person at a time.

Chuck Norris truly cares for people and for his country. He offers marvelous solutions for real change and personal growth, not through mere political means, but through application of time-tested truth.

Ok. I read the book because I have an interview with Mr. Norris next week. I wanted to write this review on the book and not the interview, so I am putting my review in now.

The first half of the book is a well thought out presentation of Chuck Norris' political philosophy. He takes great care to research and present his opinions. It is also a very easy read.

My problem isn't with the book but the premise of his politics. Not that he is a conservative Christian, but that his research is all primarily and solely based on quotes from the founding fathers. It is entirely libertarian, calling for a decentralized state controlled country with minimal federal authority.

He calls for the return to "old timey" family values that never really existed anywhere but in the editing minds of people who remember the golden days better than they were. That is, no one ever divorce in our grandparents era, kids were all above average, bad guys were bad with mustaches and black capes.

I applaud Chuck on his clearly thought out convictions, but I feel that he offers no solutions for a more complex and global world. Our universe is changing at the speed of thought and his solution is to build a time machine.

Now the second half of the book is wonderful. Great advice on health and good living. I love the inclusion of the Constitution as well as the Declaration of Independence. I respect his faith and his support of the troops.

Most of all, I respect that he wants to make a positive change with his celebrity by first thinking and educating himself on the issues before he starts speaking.

You don't have to agree with his politics to agree with his patriotism-- Chuck earned his black belt on this one.
