Review

"...Everyone can learn from Chiun's funny, Somewhat irreverent words. Well worth your time." -- Robert J. Randisi, Founder and Executive Director, The Private Eye Writers of America

About the Author

Warren Murphy was born in Jersey City, where he worked as a reporter and editor. After the Korean war, he drifted into politics, "but when everybody I worked for went to jail, I thought God was sending me a message to find a new line of work." The first Destroyer novel followed soon after.

Murphy says he has "the usual passel of snot-nosed kids, Deirdre, Megan, Brian, Ardath and Devin, some of whom now have their own snot-nosed kids."

He has been an adjunct professor at Moravian College, Bethlehem, PA, and has also run workshops and lectured at many other schools and universities. His hobbies are golf, mathematics, opera and investing.

He has served on the board of the Mystery Writers of America, and also has been a member of the Private Eye Writers of America, the International Association of Crime Writers, the American Crime Writers League, and the Screenwriters Guild.

Murphy is also a member of the Adams Roundtable, a New York writers' social group, among whose members are Mary Higgins Clark, Peter Straub, Susan Isaacs, Lawrence Block, Harlan Coben, Judith Kelman, Mickey Friedman, Dorothy Salisbury Davis, Justin Scott, Stanley Cohen and Whitley Strieber, and who occasionally produce mystery anthologies.

He lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Format: Paperback
Over the past 32 years, "THE DESTROYER" series has striven to maintain a highly satirical look at the world &, with very few exceptions, has done it & done it well. With the passing of co-creator Dick Sapir & other co-creator Warren Murphy's retirement from the series, erstwhile authors (Will Murray, Jim Mullaney, et al) have tried their hand at continuing on the legacy of Sinanju. To be fair, as excellent as Messrs Murray, Mullaney, & Co. were at crafting "Destroyer" stories, no one can do it as well as one of those who created that Universe in the first place.
Mr Murphy has decided, at least for now, to return to the world of Sinanju & the return is a triumphant one! If you're familiar with "The Destroyer", especially under Warren Murphy's guidance, you're in for a pleasant treat. If you're unfamiliar with "The Destroyer", saddle in & make certain NOT to drink / eat / inhale ANYTHING while reading, unless you don't mind messing up the pages of this excellent book when you spew forth from laughing.
On second thought, go ahead & spew. Just make certain to buy a second copy to keep pristine.

Every Destroyer fan needs a copy of this book so whenever you wonder what the Master of Sinanju would say under any given circumstance you can look it up. This book collects many of the wondrous sayings uttered by the Master of Sinanju in The Destroyer series of books also available at amazon.com. For that matter, everyone, Destroyer fan or not, needs this book to help you get through those trying times. This is definitely "duck soup for the soul".

It is Chuin. The sayings are wise, in terms or Sinaju. One short verse per page. I have the Kindle addition, but I bet the coffee table edition has some lovely pictures to go with the verses(just guessing). Do not pay more than 99 ¢ for the kindle version. It is a nice companion to the Destroyer series, however many of my favorite Chuin quotes are not in this book.

It should be cheaper as its really just a single slogane or saying per page. Its entertaining enough but short. Would have been better to have been free as an advertisement to promote the Destroyer Series. As it is there's nothing original here. You could read the whole thing in 10 minutes in a bookstore and save all the money.
But I'm glad I read it.

Chiun , the emeritus reigning Master shares his thoughts and they are worth reading. The Destroyer series is back and Murphy is personally supervising a digital rebirth -nuff said.

This book, is great for any fan of the Destroyer Series. Chiun makes you go Hmmm? Maybe we can get Warren Murphy to put out the Chiun Cookbook next?
