Tough issues are facing America, but TV actor Chuck Norris has a killer roundhouse kick…and some well-researched ideas. Returning to the wisdom of a simpler time, Norris tackles the national debt, immigration, terrorism, and obesity. Alan Skylar lays out these arguments with sincerity. His deliberate pacing and calm tone make Norris' logic easy to follow. While the title might suggest otherwise, there is nothing tongue-in-cheek about this audiobook. Instead, it presents butt-kicking solutions to some very big problems.
In Black Belt Patriotism, Norris takes no prisoners in his assessment of American culture, tackling everything from family values to national security. More than a cultural critique of what's wrong with our nation, Black Belt Patriotism provides real solutions---not superficial band-aids---for solving our problems and moving our country forward. Norris shows us how we can get involved, make a difference, and change our nation's course for the better. Chuck Norris---the hero, icon, and legend---is back, packing a political and cultural punch as only he can deliver.
What would have made Black Belt Patriotism better?
This book was clearly researched only to find support for the authors arguments. It fails to address opposing arguments or to find any common ground. The book is intellectually dishonest and is often contradictory. While the author claims to espouse liberty he clearly would take away any liberties you posses that he doesn't agree with.
Has Black Belt Patriotism turned you off from other books in this genre?
No. However, this book could have been more honestly titled "Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America with Christian Values."
What about Alan Sklar’s performance did you like?
The performance of Alan Sklar was outstanding and the only thing that kept me listening to the audiobook.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Black Belt Patriotism?
I would have never published this book.
Any additional comments?
Chuck Norris is clearly a very devout Christian and passionate about his faith. Instead of offering just the problems with America he also offers solutions. However, if you are a believer in the separation of church and state avoid this audiobook. I often had the opening scenes from "Escape from L.A." in mind while listening to this book. I've been a fan of Chuck Norris for years because of his martial arts accomplishments, and was very curious of what his political philosophy would be, but this book is a perfect example of why you should "stick to what you're good at."
