From the Back Cover

Who is the real Chuck Norris? Perhaps you’ve known him as Walker, Texas Ranger. Maybe you’ve seen him star in martial arts action films. You’re probably afraid of his roundhouse kick. Most likely, you’ve heard—and probably told—a Chuck Norris joke or two (or three or four), because they’re all over the Internet.
YOU’VE HEARD THE FACTS: “Chuck Norris can kill two stones with one bird.” “Chuck Norris doesn’t need a weapon. He is one. “ “When Chuck Norris does a push-up, he isn’t pushing himself up. He’s pushing the earth down.”
NOW DISCOVER CHUCK’S FAVORITE FACTS, FROM THE MAN HIMSELF. From the heartland of America to the battlefields of Iraq, Chuck Norris has repeatedly been asked, “Which Facts are your favorites?” Now, for the first time ever, the real Chuck Norris shares 101 of his favorite Facts and some of the stories behind them. Learn the truth about his life and career and the code by which he lives his life.
A share of the proceeds from this book will be donated to www.kick-start.org.

From AudioFile

The only time Chuck Norris uses a stunt double is for crying scenes. That's one of the 101 Chuck Norris facts in his account of inspirational anecdotes and observations. Think of this as "Chicken Soup for the Chuck Fanatic," an entertaining mix of health and business tips; life lessons; words of wisdom from Gandhi to Colbert; and true tales of Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, and Priscilla Presley. There's also the inoffensive, though constant, echo of self-promotion--yes, Chuck still uses the Total Gym. It's all made palatable by Johnny Heller's delivery, at once sincere and tongue-in-cheek. The bite-sized segments make this audio a consistently entertaining ride. Liberals and humanists, buckle your seatbelts.

Chuck Norris is a TV and film actor who has starred in more than twenty films and is well known for his popular television series "Walker, Texas Ranger." 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 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.

Some of the stories are laugh out loud funny.
B. Stan Mccullars, Jr.
I liked it, the fact that a person who has this "aura" surrounding them of internet jokes and satire can take the time to appreciate it.

I bought this book, then loaned it out to others to read.

You don't have to agree with all of Chuck Norris' opinions on God and politics to enjoy this title. The ridiculousness of the "facts" about Chuck are coupled with the hilarious lengths Norris goes to craft a correlating, yet, authentic life story and axiom. Towards the end, the tales and principles begin to blur together, but it is worth it. I found myself laughing out throughout the book, and moved almost to tears by some of Chuck's generous actions. I am one of those that doesn't agree with Chuck much of his politics but his sincerity and ability to not take himself too seriously cannot be debated and are to be respected.

You've all heard them. Chuck Norris can kill two stones with one bird. When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn't pushing himself up, he's pushing the earth down. Jesus can walk on water, but Chuck Norris can swim on land. Chuck Norris' tears can cure cancer - too bad he's never cried. Ok, Ok...enough already. I could go on forever. But what you may not know is that behind the legendary Chuck Norris jokes, is Chuck Norris the actor.

Movies like Missing in Action, The Delta Force, and their respective sequels. For his movies, I remember him most through The President's Man, where he played Joshua McCord. He also did television, most notably Walker, Texas Ranger which ran for an amazing 8 seasons. I (literally) grew up tuning in each week to see how Ranger Cordell Walker dispatched the bad guys. But before his acting career, he was Chuck Norris the martial arts expert.

Now Mr. Norris finds himself doing something else. Writing. Now this isn't Norris' first book. His biography Against All Odds is right over there in my shelf of biographies. But here, for the first time, Norris gives us some insights into his life and career, and he does so by tying them to his favorite Chuck Norris Facts.

This book is basically a collection of small essays either telling a story about Chuck, or him speaking on different issues he is passionate about (the economy, martial arts, etc.). Through it all, we see what role Chuck's Christian faith plays in his life. The books concludes with his official testimony.

Format: Paperback
First, I have to say, "wow." I feel like a kid saying that, but I had no idea growing up what the big deal was about Chuck Norris. Then, over the past few years I started hearing about these internet rumors about him and I didn't understand the fascination. I think I got a clue about all of that in reading this book.

This book is a collection of Chuck Norris's 101 favorite internet rumors about himself. I learned a lot of interesting things about Chuck Norris in this book. First, his first name is Carlos--he got nicknamed Chuck in armed forces. He got married 10 years ago (He is now 69) and has twin 8 year old boys. He loves God. A lot. And he loves his family and this country.

With each rumor, he shares either a story about his life or some of his perspective about life. He does talk about God a lot in this book which was very interesting to me.

I realized as I read this book that I really had known nothing (!) about Chuck Norris before I read this book. And now, I've learned a lot. Honestly, I can say that I'm glad that I read this book and I know about 10 people that I want to tell about this book right away--because I think they'll genuinely enjoy it.

Note: I did receive this book as a complimentary copy from Tyndale Publishing. But, I definitely would have bought it on my own!

The perfect place for this book: In the bathroom, so that when you can shut the door and steal a few minutes of peace away from the kids-- you can sit, laugh, and read something light, funny, and encouraging!

Format: Paperback
Chuck Norris "facts" have been going around the Internet for a number of years now. However, it wasn't until "The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book: 101 of Chuck's Favorite Facts and Stories" written by the actual Chuck Norris was published that we had Chuck Norris' favorites. The book is much more than just a collection of 101 quotes such as "When the going gets tough, the tough get Chuck Norris" and "The first rule of Chuck Norris : Follow his rules or eat his roundhouse kick." For each quote, or "fact," the book contains a short essay, a quote from someone else, and one of Chuck's Code, a short piece of advice such as "If I have nothing good to say about a person, then I will say nothing," or "Fighting for your family is a fight worth fighting."

I thought this was a very fun little book to read, and a book that also contained some very practical and good advice regarding living. Anyone familiar with Norris knows that his faith and conservative values are extremely important to him, and they are the foundation for the principles he lives by. Naturally, his values and faith come into play as he writes about things important to him, his life, and the way he recommends people live. Therefore, if you do not like his political or faith based positions, you might not like this book. On the other hand, if you share these beliefs and enjoyed his Black Belt Patriotism," you undoubtedly would enjoy this book too.

It does not go as deep into subjects as "Black Belt Patriotism" did, but there is still a list of references in the back. He does his research when he quotes things. And no, not every story in this book is political or faith based. Some are just fun stories of experiences. But they do have some kind of lesson behind them.
