By now, we're all familiar with the Chuck Norris phenomenon that has gripped the nation. We all know that Chuck's tears cure cancer - but don't try to make him cry, cuz he'll roundhouse-kick you right in the face. We're familiar with the fact that Chuck doesn't sleep - he waits. And we know Chuck's manhood far encompasses that of any mortal man.
Ian Spector is a genius for first starting the Original Chuck Norris Fact Generator and now for the release of this delightful book. It is a factbook you simply cannot put down - each fact is more hilarious than the last. Personally, I can't wait for the next Chuck Norris book of facts - bring them on, Ian!

The Truth...From the Originator of the "Chuck Norris Facts"

When Brown University student Ian Spector created the Chuck Norris Fact Generator in 2005 on his web site, there was no way that anyone could have anticipated the cultural impact of the "facts." Now, actor and martial artist Chuck Norris has surpassed Jesus Christ in Internet search volume thanks in part to the fire that Spector ignited. Yet Spector is still mystified by the phenomena: "I haven't to date seen any movie with [Chuck Norris] except for Dodgeball," Spector told the Brown Daily Herald. "But that doesn't really count."
The book's promotional materials tout it as "easily the most important book of all time." While some may dispute this claim, there's no denying the truths contained in "The Truth About Chuck Norris." The 400 facts assembled here are hilarious and poignant, although some of them veer towards more sexually explicit territory that may put off some Chuck Norris fans.
