I learned many fascinating things about Mr. T and Chuck Norris, but my favorite was "When Mr. T was circumcised his foreskin was not disposed of. Instead it was raised as a normal child, and it grew to love the game of basketball. Today we know Mr. T's foreskin as Shaquille O'Neal." If you enjoy the depth of creativity it takes to think of a statement like that and how over the top Chuck Norris and Mr. T already are, then this is the book for you. Plus the illustrations are boss.
If you enjoy the Internet meme of "Chuck Norris Facts," you will like this book. It is the sequel to the first book with Norris facts. This one is enhanced because it features another badass: Mr. T. Some of the lines will have you laughing, others may amuse you or make you wonder. Overall, a nice and quick funny read.
Mathew Carruthers
Pretty darned funny, but not nearly as funny as the original Chuck Norris Facts material. If you're suffering from dysentery and are spending inordinate amounts of time in the executive reading room, this book would be a good choice to help you pass the time (and other things). If that is not the case, then there are probably better choices of reading material out there.

Ah, what to say...if you're a child of the 80s, you'll find some funny stuff in here. But only some. Mr. T is about the baddest man to ever live, so I'm stoked someone gave him some recognition for it.

Another great bathroom read.

"Mr. T doesn't believe in God, but God believes in him."

Art is surprisingly good. The layout gives me some interesting ideas for my own masterpiece of literature.

I couldn't help myself. Mindless, pointless but utterly side-splitting humor. The book serves no purpose than to test how many times you can laugh out loud or exclaim 'holy crap!' in the short period of time it takes you to read it.
Joshua Mcdonald
funny but a coffeetable book.

I thought it was actually pretty funny. Of course, it sure is an easy read. Probably an hour at most. Not bad for a bathroom book.

another good quick read. especially if you like chuck norris jokes, or getting roundhouse kicked in the face.
The 2nd book, not as great as the first. You can tell that they really ran out of steam after the first 400 facts. While still entertaining - it's really nothing new.
April Suter
A few "facts" now and then that were funny.

I can not stop myself... Chuck Norris and Mr. T in one book together.... I think I have died and gone to heaven.

This book is actually REALLY funny and very silly. I read it in an evening or two before bed. It's just ridiculous one-liners. But it made me laugh out loud.
For the Chuck Norris fans.

Reading about Chuck Norris and Mr. T at the same time is killing two stones with one bird, just like Chuck Norris does.

Chuck Norris makes you an offer you can't refuse, then makes you refuse it.

What a gem. My sides hurt.

I only read this because I left the book I was reading at work and found this on my husband's bookshelf. I didn't laugh once. Maybe because I'm not a guy?
