I bought this as a gift for my husband. We both read it within a week and had so many great laughs! I then sent it to my brother who is serving overseas to give him some encouragement and he enjoyed every page in it as well :) There were many "chuck norris facts" I had never heard of. I also enjoyed that he included life stories and encouragement within the book

UBR--"Ultimate Bathroom Reading" It was recommended to me by a friend to put on my toilet Chuck's new "Official Chuck Norris Fact Book" and watch what happens. Every guest I have over is laughing from the bathroom. No joke! Every toilet in America needs one on it. Especially with all the "Faith" entries, starting with #11, it is a great seeker-sensitive evangelistic tool too! Awesome caricature drawings too in each of the 101 entries.

I admit that I purchased the book to laugh and to get a little relief to some stressful situations in my life. It worked! I was really surprised how I was encouraged and inspired as I read it, which was totally unexpected. What I shortly discovered was a book that was medicine to my mind, body and soul. I picked something else up as I was reading through it, then went back and confirmed it. Tyndale did a great job incorporating a spiritual dimension through sections on "Faith" that build one upon another from Chuck's Creator to his confessions and creeds, a clear unfolding apologetic that just deepens progressively to #101. Observe the unfolding faith from #11, #35, #44, #54, #64, #72, #79, #83, #90, and #101. I couldn't help but think how this would make a good gift for those I know who aren't spiritual or too reluctant to read more "obvious" spiritual books. I highly recommend this book.

The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book is a fun book, but it also gives a great deal of insight into the man behind the fact phenomenon. Each of the 101 Chuck Norris Facts in the book is supplemented by a true story from Chuck Norris himself. After that bit of trivia is a quote pertaining to the story, and the end of each entry gives the corresponding core value from Chucks Code--Norris five core values he lives by: Freedom, Family, Fitness, Faith, and Fight--and a sentence or two that goes with it.Throughout the book, Norris offers opinions and trivia on everything from his movie career to his family to nutrition. The reader comes away with a greater understanding of Norris deep-seated Christianity, his patriotism, his support of the military, and his belief that people must work not only to improve themselves but the world around them as well.The humor in this book had me laughing many times, but Norris also touched on some topics that hit home and made me see things I could improve in my own life. I was particularly impressed with his openness about his failures as well as his successes. His belief that everyone has the opportunity to change their corner of the world is inspiring, especially since the stories in this book show how one person can make a huge difference in the lives of countless people. The many reminders that God sees each of us as His own special creation and has a plan for each and every one of us are uplifting. I highly recommend The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book for anyone looking for a book that leaves the reader with hope for a better world and a better relationship with God and family.I received a complimentary copy of this book as a member of the Tyndale Blog Network.

These book is hilarious and inspirational! NO JOKE! I found the most engaging part of the book is the diversity of stories in the 101 entries, from Norris's martial arts, movies and television careers to his encounters with notables and others all around the world. My favorites are how he wrestled and got bit by a snake on "Walker, Texas Ranger," and how he had to use a real rat (instead of a fake one) for a stunt in one of his Missing in Action movies in which he had to hold the rat in his mouth for several minutes while hanging upside down from a rope! The stories also include intimate details of his personal life, from family, love and marriage, faith and even his daily workout plan and diet. He discusses how he was able to overcome the effects of an alcoholic violent father, abject poverty and the many hurdles on his way to become world karate champion and an award-winning actor. Particularly moving are his tributes to his mother and brother Wieland, who died in 1970 in the Vietnam War. He also conveys insights into (and funny stories about) his relationships with other legends like Bruce Lee, Elvis Presley and many other movie stars, sports figures and cultural icons. Lastly, many entries are inspirational and educational on a host of subjects, from America's origins to fitness and finances and overcoming various obstacles in life. In almost every entry, Chuck encourages his readers to keep striving to be their best, physically, mentally and spiritually. And he uses his five core values (fight, family, faith, fitness and freedom) to motivate them. This book is the PERFECT Christas gift, white elephant gift, stocking stuffer, or just an evangelistic tool to leave on the coffee table or in the bathroom. Who won't pick it up and read it?? You'll be surprised how Chuck weaves his testimony throughout this book. Buy it! Buy 10 for others!
