Reviews

"The legendary action star gets candid telling his life story - in particular, recounting his many brushes with death both on and off screen. You'll be hard-pressed to find a Hollywood memoir with this much blood and (broken) bone. Chan's stories are too fascinating to ignore." -Entertainment Weekly
"This life story, as told in the star's impossibly colorful memoir Never Grow Up, (Gallery Books, 333 pp., 3 stars out of four), would have Charles Dickens speed-dialing Chan's film agent for movie rights-with tales of Chan's impoverished youth (from age 6, enrolled in the abusive China Drama Academy), lost loves, undying ambition fueled by his insecurity over his upbringing, true bravery and eventual glory." -USA Today
"Like Chan's best films, his memoir is engaging and entertaining." -Shelf Awareness
"The book is definitively warts (and cracked skulls and broken bones and gallons of blood) and all... but Chan also reveals a soulful, thoughtful side-just one you wouldn't want to mess with." -Kirkus Reviews
"Undeniably fun... winningly upbeat... it provides a heck of a lot of entertainment." -Publishers Weekly
"This is a worthy addition to library collections not only because of Chan's worldwide fame but also for the value of a non-Western Hollywood success story." -Booklist
"With 200-plus films, an honorary Oscar, and countless mind-blowing stunts to his credit, the martial arts master reflects here on his remarkable acting career. Chan shares how through the ups and downs, he was able to keep his grace, poise, and humility." -CBS Watch! Magazine
"A legendary life, with many fascinating stories waiting for you to discover." -Jet Li
"I was always a big fan of Jackie and working with him was like a dream come true. His innovative and creative ability was unmatched." -Chris Tucker
"Jackie reminds me to make every summer count and to think with my heart, he leads by example and lights the way." -Adrien Brody
"Working with Jackie Chan is maybe the most fun I've ever had working on movies." -Owen Wilson
"Jackie Chan is one of the great and iconic movie stars of our time." -Jeffrey Katzenberg
"Jackie Chan is my favorite person to duet with." -Kenny G
"If you're a fan of Jackie and even if you're not, it's a great look at the man's life and the entertainment industry. And he is brutally honest, which is refreshing from someone in his field." -Red Carpet Crash
"The son of Hong Kong is one of the world's biggest film stars, as famous for his comic timing as his martial arts stunts. Here, he reflects, in forthright fashion, on not only his many brushes with death, but also his life off-screen - including cheating on his wife and frequenting gambling dens." -Independent
