I LOVED The Karate Kid. I loved Daniel LaRusso. And like a lot of other girls, I had a massive crush on Ralph Macchio. So when I heard he had a book coming out, I knew I had to get it. Like most memoirs that I read, I decided to listen to the audiobook. I really enjoy hearing the author telling their own story, in their own voice. That’s exactly what I did for Waxing On: The Karate Kid and Me by Ralph Macchio.
What’s it about?
Waxing On is really a love story between a man and the iconic character he played. And like any other love story, there are challenges, ups and downs, and lots of fun moments.
Who should read it?
If you are a fan of the The Karate Kid series, Waxing on is a must-read. You will learn so much behind-the-scenes information that will have you rushing to go watch it again. I haven’t watched the Cobra Kai series yet, but Ralph may have convinced me to check it out. There’s plenty of the good stuff in the book for Cobra Kai fans as well.
Spoiler Alert – The Karate Kid!!!
I’m going to share info about The Karate Kid that I had no idea about. Some of this will come from the book, and some of it from research. I promise you, even if I tell you what some of these revelations, Waxing On is still a great read. Hearing him tell the stories in his own words, and voice if you listen to the audiobook, is definitely worth it.
Here we go, as part of my ongoing series…”I Can’t Believe I Didn’t Know This About…The Karate Kid”
