I had the opportunity to read the book. That was good. Listening is better...The narrator nailed the voice, and it was a riot to listen to. As another reviewer noted, some of the facts blur into others, but overall, Chuck gives some solid and good advice in this book.

Medicine for the mind, body and soul!!
This audio version is fantastic! I admit that I purchased it 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.
- You don't have to agree with...
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. Johnny Heller's narration only adds to the audio experience. From the start, Heller makes it seem almost as if Clint Eastwood was reading to you. Can it get any better than that!?
