Super-Powered Fiction(?): Official Chuck Norris Fact Book

In the last decade, the internet created its own tongue in cheek superhero in the form of one Chuck Norris. Now Chuck himself has decided to collect 101 of his favorite facts in The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book.

Now this being Chuck, each and every super-fact is followed with an anecdote from Chuck’s life. Many cover his thoughts on life, others cover his history both good and bad, while still others cover his beliefs in God, politics, and celebrity.

Anyone knowledgeable about Chuck knows he is a conservative Christian, but the fact book never beats this fact over your head. He gives you his views, but he doesn’t spend time attacking those that disagree with him. It’s quite refreshing actually.

And, usually, he keeps it fun. I think that is the most important thing when you remember that the joy of a book like this is the hilarious superhuman facts about the life of Chuck Norris.

Because after all, “Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas to bed at night.” Recommended.
