As I stated before, I really loved this book. It was funny, thought-provoking, inspiring, and just an overall good read! I was all ready a Chuck Norris fan from way back, but even those who aren't necessarily fans, will find this book good!

At the beginning of each chapter, there is a caricature of Chuck with one of the famous sayings that are so prevalent on the internet and even posters. For instance, one of my favorites is, "Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas to bed at night". Hilarious!! I love Chuck's sense of faith, family and patriotism. He has so many motivational thoughts throughout the book that will make you see how we all have something to contribute and not to give up on our dreams. For myself, I'm definitely keeping this book on my bookshelf to turn to when I need that extra boost to keep going for my dreams. Really - it was that good!

Lest you think this is a book of "look at me, I'm so good" - let me set you straight. Chuck is upfront about his failures as well as his successes. He gives glory to the One that deserves the glory and Chuck's faith in God is evident on nearly every page.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It was SO good and I know you'll love it, too.
